The national RT is falling again and in Italy we are moving more and more towards the white zone, with measures and changes of rules against the coronavirus regarding the stop to curfew and the reopening of indoor swimming pools and wellness and spa centers in some Regions . Of course, masks and spacing remain, and the ventilation and sanitation of closed places remain. According to what Adnkronos Health learned from the meeting of the Higher Institute of Health-Ministry of Health control room on Covid-19, in Italy the Rt index drops again, reaching 0.72 (last week it was 0.78). Furthermore, all the Regions / Autonomous Provinces are classified as low risk and all have an average Rt lower than 1, therefore a transmissibility compatible with a type one scenario, we learn from the latest weekly monitoring data referring to the period 17-23 May. If the trend is confirmed, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Molise and Sardinia should be the first white regions from next week. And from 7 June it will be the turn of Abruzzo, Veneto and Liguria. WHITE AREA, NO FIREWORK BUT MASKS REMAIN
In the white area, therefore, no curfew but the obligation of a mask and the spacing remain, together with a series of reopenings, according to the provisions of the agreement between the Ministry of Health and the Regions on the rules to be applied in the range with the lowest level of Covid risk. Guidelines that will be implemented in a forthcoming ordinance by Minister Speranza, the Ministry of Health announced in a note in recent days.The shared proposal provides that – without prejudice to the basic criteria of prevention, masks, spacing, ventilation and sanitation of closed places – once a Region enters the white zone, the so-called ‘curfew’ is overcome and the reopening of economic and social activities for which the current legislation already provides for the resumption of activities at a later time can be anticipated at the time of the passage. The reference for carrying out the activities is that of the ‘Guidelines for the reopening of economic and social activities’, adopted by the Conference of Regions and Autonomous Provinces and the other protocols. HYPOTHESIS OUTDOOR MASKS GET STARTED FROM AUGUST “Liberalizing vaccines from mid-June I think it is a credible prospect, while August will be the one in which we could start thinking about removing the masks outdoors” said Undersecretary of Health Andrea Costa spoke to ‘I Lunatici’ on Rai Radio 2. On the vaccination campaign “there was a change of pace. When we came to the government – Costa recalled – we were at 60,000 doses a day. Now we are at 500,000. convinced that this number will continue to grow. The month of June will be decisive, 20 million doses will arrive, we can even reach 700,000 doses per day. The primary goal was to secure the elderly and the frail, now the goal is almost achieved ” .
