“Who is not vaccinated will have limitations”
“We cannot close, we will focus on this reinforced green pass. I imagine it will end like this: the vaccinated will be able to access restaurants in the orange or red zone, those who are not vaccinated will have limitations”. Luca Zaia, governor of Veneto, Fabio Fazio’s guest at Che tempo che fa thus answers questions on measures to stem covid infections and avoid lockdowns and closures. Some regions are at risk of switching from the white to the yellow or orange zone. “This issue is a great concern for the presidents of the region, we must protect health on the one hand and the economy on the other,” says Zaia.
“There is concern, infections are increasing. We in Veneto have 1500-200 a day, we have about 400 people hospitalized. Of these, 71 are in intensive care and 80% of these people are not vaccinated. last year we had about 2000 people in hospital, the scenario has changed: the vaccine has created a wall in front of contagion. We must dialogue with citizens who have not yet decided to vaccinate us, we risk losing the game “, he says.
Zaia does not hide perplexity when it is assumed the obligation of vaccination. “In general, no vaccination campaign reaches 100%. What would the vaccination obligation be? Compulsory accompaniment to vaccination, handcuffing and arrest until vaccination? Someone tell us …”, he says.
The dialogue between the regions and the government is about to get underway. “We will meet with the government on Monday or Tuesday at the latest: we cannot close. Arriving in the orange zone means closing municipal borders, restaurants, theaters and cinemas with a series of measures. To avoid all this, we will focus on this vaccinated green pass. it will end up like this: the vaccinated will be able to access restaurants in the orange or red zone, those who are not vaccinated will have limitations. This issue is a great concern for the presidents of the region, we must protect health on the one hand and the economy on the other “, he reiterates.
