The “super Green pass” is making great strides: the audience of those who invoke it is expanding and, probably on Tuesday, governors and members of the executive will begin to outline the form of the new green certificate. “We need measures as soon as possible”, asks the president of the Conference of Regions, Massimiliano Fedriga.
The timing foresees, after the Regions-Government meeting and a series of technical meetings, the control room and the CDM, perhaps Thursday. According to what has already been learned here, some measures could be decided, such as the reduction of the validity of the green pass to 9 months and the obligation of third doses for health and safety personnel – but it is not excluded that the government decides to postpone all to the following week, launching a single package.
However, one thing is certain: the squeeze against the unvaccinated will not apply to offices or public transport, as was also assumed. This was reiterated today by the Ministry of Infrastructure itself, but the idea was also canceled by the trade unions, according to which without ad hoc personnel the controls would be “impossible”. “If you think of having the drivers check the Green Passes, you are completely out of the way – they say -. We would need to hire staff “.
But the tightening appears inevitable. “The alternative – the Foreign Minister, Luigi Di Maio, and the President of the Conference of Regions, Massimiliano Fedriga, say almost in unison – is closure”, with the consequent heavy repercussions on Christmas. It is no coincidence, in fact, that more than one in ten Italians – according to Coldiretti’s estimates – has decided to anticipate shopping for gifts to put under the tree.
On the vaccine front, on the other hand, the pressure continues to widen the audience of the immunized as much as possible: from tomorrow the administration of the third dose for the over 40s will officially open, ten days earlier than initially scheduled. A clear desire to accelerate to ensure the restoration of full coverage against the virus to a large part of the population.
The use of compulsory vaccination for all has now been excluded – a measure that does not convince Palazzo Chigi or a large portion of the governors – there is a maximum reasoning for an obligation extended to certain categories, but on the table of the upcoming meeting between Draghi, Gelmini, Speranza and the Governors there will be above all the new measures for the so-called “super Green pass”.
The intention, as is well known, is to prohibit no vax from accessing social services, such as cinemas, theaters or restaurants, in the event of a change in the color of the Regions.
A prospect that, at the moment, does not appear on the horizon, but that could still occur, and even soon, if it is true – as the experts say – that the fourth wave will triple the cases from 10 thousand today to 30 thousand. The super Green pass, therefore, is a decision that, explains Fedriga, will on the one hand “convince even the last undecided” and on the other “give certainty to companies, to which we cannot say ‘let’s see in which area you will be and if will you keep it open or not ‘”. “If we do not intervene – he underlines – the result is that if a Region passes in the orange or red zone it is closed regardless of all”. Concept reaffirmed by Foreign Minister Di Maio: “The alternative to the Green pass and vaccines is to close everything and we can neither afford nor want this”.
“We need to act with new initiatives and, for example, the obligation of the third dose for the categories for which the vaccination obligation is already foreseen, I think it is a measure that will be approved this week”, confirms the Undersecretary of Health, Andrea Costa. “Instead, we await indications from the CTS – he adds – to understand if it is appropriate to anticipate the third dose to 5 months from the completion of the primary cycle”. Even the choice to “restore the duration of the green pass to nine months, I think it is a reasonable choice based on scientific evidence”, concludes Costa who then appeals to fans to wear a mask in the stands because – he says – “there is at this moment we really need to respect all the rules again and to make the sense of responsibility prevail “.
