Italy introduces the "health permit" for access to enclosed and crowded places.
The Italian authorities have decided to introduce a "health permit" internally. It will be necessary for access to restaurants, bars, museums, shops, cinemas, theaters, game rooms. The measure will take effect on August 6.
The health permit will also be required for sporting events, concerts, shows, fairs and congresses, events attended by many people and which are possible sources of contamination. Nightclubs will remain closed until further notice, but this sector will receive public aid.
In other words, this permit will allow Italians to continue their activities with the guarantee of not being among the contagious people.
The health permit, called the "Green Pass", can be issued by people cured by Covid, by those who have a negative test done in the last 48 hours and even from the first dose of vaccine.
Obviously, this news was not well received by those who oppose the covid vaccine, they are against covid measures and deny the existence of a pandemic. But the Prime Minister of Italy, Mario Draghi, wanted to mention that this permit will be mandatory, not a recommendation.
Italy registers several thousand new cases every day. On Thursday, 5.057 cases were registered in Italy, a threshold that has not been reached since May 21. The good news is that the number of deaths and serious cases is still low.
