The parable of Orazio Schillaci Minister of Health. And the Meloni government immediately marks a sensational change of pace compared to the past and compared to the ultra-restrictive and highly contested policies of Roberto Speranza. The rumors had already leaked out on the eve, but now the minister confirms them personally.
Primarily, stop on the daily bulletin, to the Covid emergency figures released daily, especially in the last year, a tool more likely to create panic than information and control. A stop on which, for example, experts such as Matteo Bassetti had been insisting for some time.
Farewell to the daily bulletin on cases, deaths and hospitalizations. The count, as mentioned, becomes a weekly report. The ministry explains that “six months after the suspension of the state of emergency, and in consideration of the trend of the infection from Covid-19, it deems it appropriate to start a progressive return to normality in activities and behavior, inspired by criteria of responsibility and respect of the regulations in force “, informs the ministry headed by Schillaci. Therefore, announces a note from Lungotevere Ripa, “also based on the prevailing indications in the medical and scientific fieldsthe daily publication of the bulletin of data relating to the spread of the epidemic, hospitalizations and deaths will be suspended, which will now be announced on a weekly basis, without prejudice to – it should be noted – the possibility for the competent authorities to acquire in any moment the information necessary to control the situation and to take the necessary measures “.
Therefore, a measure that marks an even deeper and more substantial difference. Schillaci in fact confirms that we are proceeding quickly towards the reintegration of suspended sanitary ware why not vaccinated. In fact, with regard to health personnel subject to suspension proceedings for non-compliance with the vaccination obligation and the cancellation of the fines provided for by Legislative Decree 44/21, in view of the expiration of next December 31st of the provisions in force and the worrying shortage of medical and health personnel reported by the heads of the health and territorial structures, a provision is being defined that will allow the reintegration into service of the aforementioned personnel before the expiry date of the suspension. This is what the note from the Ministry of Health adds.
