Mario Draghi has his way when he thinks the welfare of his country is at risk.

Without compromising with vaccination opponents, Italy's Prime Minister has introduced the 3-G obligation for all 23 million employees in Italy.

Anyone who cannot prove that they have been vaccinated, recovered or tested can be suspended from work after five days without a salary, but they do not lose their job.

Draghi's approach is always the same: he explains his intentions and motives to the members of the coalition, makes a few marginal concessions, but remains tough on the matter.

With the 3-G rule, Draghi not only wants to increase the vaccination rate, but also to save Italy from closings in winter and thus secure economic recovery and growth.

Draghi even saved himself a verbose presentation at a press conference.

He contented himself with passing on a short sentence: “This decree serves to enable us to open up further.” The average Italian has long understood and appreciates such leaders.
