In many parts of Italy, the CoV situation has gradually improved and pressure on hospitals has decreased. Starting tomorrow, Lombardy, the region of the country most affected by the epidemic, and the regions of Piedmont, Basilicata and Calabria will be downgraded to the yellow zone, Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza decided last night.
Stores can reopen
This means that stores can open again, and pubs are allowed to stay open until 6:00 pm. Last Sunday, the previously red classified regions of Tuscany, Campania, as well as the Valle d’Aosta and the province of Bolzano-South Tyrol had been classified in a less high risk zone (orange). In total, there are three coronavirus risk levels. In yellow zones, the lowest measures apply.
In order not to jeopardize progress in the fight against the second wave of coronavirus again, the center-left government in Rome has imposed tighter travel restrictions for all citizens for the Christmas period between December 21 and January 6. Nighttime curfew restrictions also remain in effect.
In almost all Italian regions, the reproductive rate dropped to 0.82 last week. “The epidemic is slowing down in several regions of Italy,” the CTS scientific committee, which advises the Health Ministry, said.
