The government considers it unacceptable for health workers to interact with patients without being announced by Prime Minister Mario Draghi.

Corona virus – second year

It has been more than a year since Chinese officials reported a new, fast-spreading virus to the WHO. Since then, there has been hardly a person in the world who has not heard the word Covid-19, and mourns with a new relative or friend for many weeks, while the new disease is over, the reserves are declining in weeks, and our whole life is rewritten by the epidemic. Now, vaccinations are complete, which not only raises a lot of questions of hope, but at the same time threatens another mutation, not just stopping the virus. Details of this fight can be found in our series of articles.

He announced at a press conference on Friday that he would use legal action against health workers who say they should not be vaccinated against the corona virus and would not relax national epidemic controls until the end of April.

Mario Draghi did not report that the government considers it unacceptable for unhygienic workers to interact with patients.

“The government is taking action: the Minister of Justice is already working on the right arrangement,” Mario Tragi said.

Roberto Speranza, head of the Ministry of Health, noted that the number of health workers who refused to be vaccinated was very low because the substantial proportion of doctors, nurses and health workers set a good example.

In recent days, it has been reported that workers who have so far refused to be vaccinated in several Italian hospitals have spread the SARS-CoV-2 virus among patients.

According to epidemiological data summarized on Friday, the territory of Italy is divided into the most dangerous, i.e. red, and moderately dangerous, i.e. orange zones.

There will be a change in North Vale de Asta, which will be ordered to close completely from Saturday. The so-called reproduction rate was the highest in the region, at 1.75.

In the province of Lazio, they will be released from Tuesday: the area will move from red to orange, meaning the day curfew will be lifted, kindergarten and high school students will return to classrooms, and shops and hairdressers will be open during the day. However, the dissolution will only last until Easter, and from April 3 to 5, the entire country will again be subject to full closure.

The government has not yet announced what activities it intends to maintain after Easter: press reports are expected to gradually ease restrictions, but hospitality will only be allowed to open until the afternoon, which is a small concession in Italy. At the same time, however, Mario Draghi confirmed that there were no plans to ease national controls by the end of April.

As for the reopening of high schools, health officials stressed that the presence of students in the classroom, but not the resumption of public transport with them, is a continuing threat to the spread of the epidemic.

Twenty Italian regions are steadily increasing the number of people receiving treatment in thirteen intensive care units. The concentration of Govt classes is above the critical levels in ten regions.

Since the end of December, 8.6 million Italians have been vaccinated: 6.6 million of them have been vaccinated with Pfizer-BioNtech, 2.4 million with Astrogeneca and more than eight million with Moderna.

Mario Tragi, 73, has announced that he has signed up for the Astrogeneca vaccine according to his age, but has not yet received an answer as to when that might happen.
