Italian citizens will no longer have to wear masks when going out from June 28. Italy was the worst hit among European countries at the start of the Corona pandemic.
However, the government has taken this decision as daily infections in the country and patient pressure in hospitals are decreasing. Infections in the country have now started to decrease a lot.
After the second wave of corona started in Italy last year, the use of masks became mandatory. At that time, the country's government had to fight to reduce the infection. They have repeatedly warned people about following the various restrictions of corona including masks. As a result of this, the daily infections have reduced a lot.
Prime Minister Mario Draghi's government began lifting strict restrictions last April. Restaurants, bars, cinemas and gyms have been allowed to reopen and people have been allowed to move freely across the country.
Until now, the only requirement was to wear a mask. But it was also announced to be withdrawn. However, the obligation on masks has not been lifted everywhere. It has been informed that masks should be worn in public transport and internal public gatherings.
The people of the country have also been advised to keep masks with them. So that when they go out, they can stay safe in overcrowded, infection-prone areas and large crowds by wearing a mask.
It has been reported that this new decision will be effective from next Monday. Italy is going to become a white zone due to the slow rate of infection. Already 19 areas of the country have been included in the white zone.
