Restaurants, cinemas and galleries in Italy begin in part today, while Prime Minister Mario Draghi, in Parliament, presents his plan to revive the economy.
This is in the context of a somewhat normalized life after months of rotation between strict closure and limited re-opening, where bars and restaurants will be allowed in the vast majority of the 20 areas that have moved to yellow, marking the lowest level of risk in the corona virus epidemic, will be allowed to reopen their balconies, including in the evening, for the first time in six months, although the curfew remains in effect from 10 p.m. (GMT), according to FP.
It should be noted that cinemas, theatres and music galleries can receive an audience of 50% capacity, with swimming pools, sports centres and amusement parks coming in by July 1st.
The Italian Prime Minister had come under pressure from the regional authorities and demonstrators to relax the restrictions against the Corona virus, he noted that he was taking a "calculated risk" at a time when Italy still recorded a rate of more than 300 deaths per day from the corona virus, despite the declining frequency of virus infections and hospitalization.
The vaccination campaign against the corona virus has reached a stable pace of about 350,000 doses per day, with regional variation.
For his part, Nino Cartabelota, at the helm of the Gimpy Institute specializing in public health issues, warned that "it is clear that if the gradual re-opening is interpreted as a return to life as before, there could be a new rise in the level of injuries that would pose a risk to the summer season."
