From today Italy almost all yellow

It will be an Italy almost completely in yellow that represented in the Covid map starting from today. In fact, the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza, on the basis of the data and indications of the Control Room of last May 14, 2021, signed a new ordinance that brings the Regions of Sicily and Sardinia to the yellow zone. The only "chromatic variation" will be represented by the Aosta Valley, which even having yellow numbers must remain in the orange zone according to the order signed on Friday 7 May by the minister. 

Overall, therefore, the breakdown of the Regions and Autonomous Provinces in the different areas based on the risk levels starting from today is as follows: yellow zone for Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Emilia Romagna, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Lazio, Liguria, Lombardy, Marche, Molise, Piedmont, Autonomous Province of Bolzano, Autonomous Province of Trento, Puglia, Sardinia, Sicily, Tuscany, Umbria and Veneto; Valle d'Aosta orange zone.

This is a result that comes after 5 months and that will lead to important reopening even in the only regions that have remained with stricter restrictive measures so far. In these areas, green light for restaurants (those with open spaces), cinemas, theaters and museums and travel.

Meanwhile, foreign tourists begin to appear again in the squares and streets of Italian cities, after the circular of the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, who from today cancels the quarantine for citizens of the European Union and Great Britain, but also for those who comes from the territories of the Schengen area and Israel. Meanwhile, since Saturday, the Italians have returned to the beach on the day of the reopening of the establishments and outdoor pools. 

A restart that confirms that principle of gradualness and prudence in the executive's choices that the Prime Minister Mario Draghi has repeated several times and which he will repeat at the summit with the majority group leaders of tomorrow, despite the constant pressure of the center-right and most of the regional presidents.
