State of emergency until December, green pass and new parameters: Council of Ministers to slip, all nodes in the majority


Open dialogue, very open, almost one to collide, so much so that the cabinet scheduled for tomorrow is heading towards a postponement to Thursday. it’s new arm wrestling between the Regions and the government on the percentages to be determined for the new employment barriers of hospital beds, which will determine the transition from one color to another. But even within the majority there is no lack of distances about the measures to be included in the new decision, starting with the themevaccination obligation for the school staff. Not only that: there is also a lively discussion about the green pass, for which a series of steps are envisaged for an increasingly “extensive” use, but the ideas between political forces remain distant (and even within the parties themselves, such as the League, the positions differ). The aim is to arrive at a roadmap that provides for a gradual strengthening of the obligation to access busy places and leisure activities. The hypothesis is also to convince the undecided of the vaccine and guarantee some activities – such as i restaurants inside – all with the first dose, then go to the access stage only with vaccination cycle business suit. Aspects on which not all drivers agree, will rather only use the pass to reopen the still inactive activities and avoid closures in the autumn.

The measures to deal with the possible fourth wave of Covid, which will be included in the next legislative act, are still being written. The comparison and the conversations of the last few hours – even within the same majority – led to slip of the control room He is born in cabinet: mediations to reach an agreement that satisfies everyone, the directors and the various souls of the executive, therefore continue. Also on the discussion table is the extension of the state of emergency which expires at the end of the month: it can be extended until October 31st or – more likely – until the end of Dec 2021.

There remains the knot of hospital admission thresholds: they could be brought to the Regions 15% for intensive care and all 20% for hospital admissions in regular wards, a barrage supposed to stay inside white area. The parameter, which will now be more decisive than the number of infections, will in any case – explain government sources – have to be in balance with the trend of vaccination campaign and the hospital geography of the different territories will also be taken into account. However, the government wants stricter thresholds, namely 10 and 15%. With the redefinition of parameters a minimum daily amount tampons, in all probability 150 for every hundred thousand inhabitants. The Conference of the Regions, which will be updated on Wednesday pending a meeting with government representatives, also brings forward other proposals: from the reduction of the number of zones – from 4 to 3 – with regard to the allocation of risk profiles to flexibility in the evaluation of parameters in small regions, up to the request to take into account the number of vaccinated persons in the regions.

“Both the revision of the parameters for the zones and the use of the green pass are in full swing conversations with the government,” explains the president of the governors, Massimiliano Fedriga, which will soon announce a final position. For the time being, the idea of ​​the Regions to “use the green pass as” safe behavior to prevent closures outside the white area”, meanwhile introducing the obligation to pass with the pass discos e major events. The use of the pass for indoor restaurants and clubs should – according to the governors – instead affect the areas outside the white zone: “A measure that is particularly important in Autumn – they say – it would serve to prevent new closures”. Even among the political forces of the center right the requests from those asking to avoid applications in school or hospitals are increasing.

However, it seems certain that the problems on the reopening of schools in September or from the sports events. turn away yellow areas, or worse Orange or red, is the common goal, especially in light of the proliferation of infections recorded in the latest bulletin: 3,558 positives, an increase of 132% compared to last Tuesday. This is also why the profession from the government, also for young people: “The vaccine it is essential even under the age of 40 “, reiterates the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza. And a sharp increase in the number of cases occurred in the capital, where they have increased almost fivefold compared to July 11, the day of the final of the European football championships and related street parties. Rome registered 557 positives, one sixth of the entire country, while on July 11 the new infections were 122. “But there are no complications in hospitals,” assures regional health councilor Alessio D’Amato emphasizes the importance of vaccines. In Sicily, on the other hand, in the Agrigento area there are two red areas: a Caltabellotta, where a cluster was recorded after a wedding banquet, ea favara.
