Health Minister Roberto Speranza signed similar orders on Friday, which will divide 15 regions into the yellow zone with moderate Corona restrictions starting Monday, where such openings are possible. This was announced by his ministry in Rome. The yellow regions include Lombardy, with Milan and the province of Bolzano in South Tyrol and Latium, with Rome as its capital.
The stricter rules must continue to apply in Sardinia. Starting Monday, the regions of Puglia, Basilicata and Calabria in southern Italy and the island of Sicily and the Little Aosta Valley in the northwest will be located in the mid-strict (orange) region.
Corona passport to travel in the country
The government of former European Central Bank President Mario Draghi presented a roadmap on Wednesday to gradually ease coronavirus restrictions from April 26 to the summer. With the exception of the red zones (lockdown zones), Draghi wants to start in all other regions from April 26th. Once again, all ages are allowed to go to school. The swimming pools are scheduled to open in mid-May, followed by cinemas and theaters shortly thereafter.
In addition, a Corona passport will be introduced for travel within the country soon.
In the Corona Administration’s weekly report, health experts warned of a seven-day increase in the infection value. The average in Italy last week saw 157 cases per 100,000 people. The number of patients in intensive care units is also high. Nationwide, an average of 35 percent of the household is occupied.
But in Italy, the epidemic is in decline. On Friday, the authorities reported nearly 14,800 new infections and nearly 340 virus deaths within a day.
