As of October 15, Italy had increased the number of people receiving the first dose of the Covit-19 vaccine by 40 percent, following a government order requiring health recognition for all workers, both public and private.
The Italian Corona virus jar office says the first dose has increased by 35 percent in a week compared to last Saturday. Italian regions across the country reported an increase of 20 to 40 percent in appointments to be vaccinated this week.
On Thursday, Italy became the first major European economy, with all workers expected to submit to the “Green Corridor” next month. Vaccination, recent negative test or proof of recovery from COVID-19 in the last six months is required.
Health Minister Roberto Speranza says the aim is to increase the vaccine campaign while creating safer workplaces. Italy, once the epicenter of the outbreak in Europe, vaccinated 75 percent of people aged 12 and over. Italy has recorded more than 130,000 deaths, the third highest in Europe after Britain and Russia.
“The Green Corridor is a tool for freedom that will help make workplaces safer,” Speranza told a news conference. The second reason is to strengthen our vaccination campaign.
Slovenia and Greece took similar steps this week. But Italy’s 2 trillion euro ($ 2.35 trillion) economy, the third largest economy in the European Union, is the biggest target, and the move underscores the government’s determination to avoid another lockout, even as the number of new viral infections increases. Especially among those who have not been vaccinated.
