The dialogue between the government, through the Minister of Autonomies Francesco Boccia, and the Regions continues under the hood, but it seems difficult that from here to Wednesday the executive will be deflected by the decision to reopen to mobility throughout Italy. Minister Roberto Speranza acknowledges that “there is a risk and it would be wrong not to recognize it” but after all reflects “zero risk does not exist now but we will only get there when there is a vaccine and until then it is a question of assuming weighted risks and to try to manage a different phase “.
In short, if it is not possible for the Regions most concerned to obtain a postponement or a differentiated reopening, nor the freedom to impose the quarantine – in the face of European tourists from the Schengen area who will not have to do it -, the focus is on controls. Regarding home isolation, it is not excluded that regional ordinances may arrive, reasons close to Minister Boccia reason, adding however that so far no one has explicitly spoken about it. Moreover, if you want to attract tourists, it is unthinkable to quarantine them regardless. The dichotomy always remains that between the protection of health and the economy.
The numbers of today’s pandemic – The pandemic has already cost Italy the appalling – and probably underestimated – figure of 33,415 victims. The trend of the curve is downhill, the intensive care units are 435, about a tenth of those of the peak in early April. The sick are still 42 thousand, but the recovered almost four times as much. In the last 24 hours there has been a decline in the currently positive in all regions (except in Umbria, unchanged) and in nine regions there have been no other deaths. In Lombardy the
the decline is slower, even for the very large starting numbers and 10 million inhabitants: 210 out of 355 are newly infected throughout Italy, 33 out of 75 died (44%), however in decline.
