In Italy, the province of Lombardy, which is a focal point for the coronavirus epidemic, could be closed again, but in low-risk regions, museums could reopen, according to health minister Roberto Speranza’s parliamentary announcement on Wednesday, with more than 80,000 deaths.
Roberto Speranza announced that from Saturday, the country would be divided into colored areas again according to the degrees of danger of the spread of the epidemic. In addition to the red, orange and yellow regions used since November, white zones will also be introduced, where restrictions, including the curfew, will be lifted, leaving only the face mask in place. In white areas, the reproduction rate must be below a certain value so that the incidence of infection per 100,000 inhabitants does not exceed fifty. At present, no region of Italy fulfills these conditions.
Re-closure may apply to the provinces of Lombardy and Emilia Romagna. They are preparing to reopen museums in low-risk, i.e. yellow, areas. The final measures will be decided at the government meeting on Wednesday evening. The emergency, which has been continuously extended from 28 January last year, has been in force for the time being until the end of April.
At the same time, the number of fatalities exceeded 80,000 in the country. In the first wave of the epidemic, between February and June last year, 33,000 died, and since then almost another fifty thousand. In the last one day, 507 patients lost their lives after more than six hundred on Tuesday.
According to the Ministry of Health, more than 800,000 vaccines have been given since the last days of December. More than fifty percent of the 1.4 million Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines and nearly fifty thousand-dose Moderna shipments that have arrived in the country so far have been used.
The leadership of the province of Lazio in central Italy has announced that vaccination of people over the age of 80 living in non-nursing homes, numbering more than 400,000, will begin in late January.
The Argentine press was informed that among the first on Wednesday, 84-year-old Pope Francis was also vaccinated in a vaccination that had also begun in the Vatican City.
