The reopening of the indoor pools set for July 1st? “It is a hallucinating and logical decision”. The president of Federnuoto Paolo Barelli thus comments to the Adnkronos the postponement of the opening of the indoor swimming pools to 1 July. “The CTS and the Government by doing so bring a sector already in crisis completely to its knees – continues the number one in Italian sport -. The worst thing is that they do it without a reason. In a moment where the data is improving and it is rightly reopened more or less everything is postponed by a month the opening of the swimming pools, evidently they think that Covid is hiding in the chlorine …. Every citizen of common sense understands that it is nonsense. If they were to extend another month, they need real refreshments and not alms seen so far “. Italian swimmers wear a mask with the hashtag #salviamolepiscine to sensitize institutions to reopen the indoor pools during the first session of the finals of the European championships, taking place in Budapest. The government’s decision is also criticized by members of the majority. “I agree with President Draghi’s choices to loosen the restrictive measures to encourage new openings. Graduality serves to stop closing. Ok on curfews, restaurants, weddings, sports, shopping centers. Only one aspect remains obscure and I do not agree with it: the reopening of the indoor pools which would seem to be postponed to 1 July: our boys have been stopped for 2 seasons; the managers risk failing. Why yes gyms and no indoor pools? They are for the gradualness and the reasoned risk, but not for the ‘nonsense “, says the senator of the Democratic Party, Eugenio Comincini. From Forza Italia come the words of the president of the senators, Anna Maria Bernini:” Well the relaxation of the curfew, well the reopening of shopping centers this weekend, well the new parameter referred to hospitalization to assess the progress of the pandemic. On the other hand, the postponement of the reopening of the outdoor pools to 1 July is bad. European swimmers all wear goggles with the words’ save the pools. Forza Italia will do everything to make the government listen to them “.
