A digital covid green pass to move even outside the European Union, perhaps thanks to a code on your smartphone. This is the proposal that Roberto Speranza, Minister of Health, will formulate next week in the meeting with the other health ministers of the G7 countries. The green pass in Italy already exists in paper format. In the EU, the ‘pass’ is expected in July. “The green pass is an important weapon, a tool to promote mobility: it will be in both paper and digital format. It is already available in paper format, and you are already in a position to receive a vaccination certificate. paper certificate after a negative swab “, explains Speranza at Che tempo che fa. “The digital switchover is the real challenge, it will allow us real interoperability with European countries. We also need to go further: next week there is a meeting in Oxford between the health ministers of the G7 countries, my proposal is that we go beyond the European limits “, says the minister referring to” United States, Canada, Japan. We will work to ensure that the green pass arrives in the simplest way possible: on paper where necessary, but also on your mobile phone. A very simple code will allow to have better mobility “. GREEN PASS ITALY The reopening decree launched in April outlined the vaccination pass tool: it is necessary to obtain certification attesting to vaccination (with the second dose received no more than 6 months ago) or the negative outcome of a swab performed by over 48 hours. These requirements are also valid for minors, children under the age of two are excluded. The vaccination pass, included in the decree, will allow you to move “from one Region to another even if it is red or orange areas”. At the moment, as is well known, Italy is all yellow or white. The requirements for obtaining the pass, which can also be issued by the family doctor, were illustrated in the decree: “Anyone who has completed the vaccination cycle (lasts six months from the end of the prescribed cycle) can have a green certificate, sick of covid and is cured, those who have carried out molecular tests or rapid tests with negative results (lasts 48 hours from the date of the test) “. Therefore, the pass will be up to those who have been vaccinated and to those who can show a negative molecular swab made within 48 hours prior to moving. The pass is also necessary for minors. Children under the age of two are exempt. “Green certifications issued by EU member states are recognized as valid in Italy. Those of a third state if the vaccination is recognized as equivalent to that valid in the national territory”, sources from Palazzo Chigi announce. within the EU will certify, through an app with a QR code or in paper format, the vaccination against Covid-19 and the number of doses received, the cure from Covid in the previous six months and the presence of the relative antibodies (through test) or the negative result of a swab, Pcr or rapid (the technical details on this will be negotiated by the co-legislators). It will then be up to each Member State to establish the entry requirements for its territory: these are exclusively national competences and the EU cannot impose anything in this field. Can only recommend.
