Nur situation is one of the best in Europe, ”Prime Minister Mario Draghi stressed to the press,“ but this situation is slightly but constantly deteriorating ”.

The government has decided that unvaccinated people will no longer be able to access restaurants, bars, cinemas, theaters, nightclubs and weight rooms.

Only those vaccinated and those cured for less than six months will be able to access it, while those who until now were allowed to enter by simply showing a negative result of a test will no longer be able to do so.

These measures will come into force from December 6 and will be valid until January 15, unless the situation worsens.

In addition, since Wednesday, all Italians over 40 can receive the booster dose already five months after the second dose, the Ministry of Health having decided to shorten the six-month period initially planned.

Those over 18 will be able to obtain this third dose from December 1, said Health Minister Roberto Speranza.

This third dose will be compulsory from December 15 for all health personnel.
