Italy ends mandatory outdoor face masks


Due to an improvement in the contagion statistics, Health Minister Roberto Speranza has stated that the requirement to wear face masks outside in Italy will expire on June 28 in low-COVID-19-risk white zones.


Except for Val d’Aosta, which is projected to go from moderate-risk yellow to white next week, the rest of Italy is presently in a white zone.


The need will stay in place for enclosed facilities such as offices, stores, and public transportation, as well as outdoor areas where crowds may develop, such as a line outside a post office.


Since the epidemic hit the country in early 2020, there have been 127,291 fatalities and 4.25 million infections.


COVID-19 patients account for 6% of Italy’s intensive-care beds, with the number of coronavirus patients in ICUs dropping from 688 on June 8 to 504 on June 15. No area has surpassed the crucial level of 30%.



So far, 30% of persons over the age of 12 have been vaccinated, or around 16 million people out of a population of 60 million.


In Italy, about 46 million vaccination doses have been given.

Love Abruzzo: The fascination of folkloric traditions and unique wild fauna

  Abruzzo is a mystery, as it is neither part of the fashion-conscious, Ferrari-producing north nor the siesta-loving, anarchic south. Despite its proximity to Rome and a long history of tribalism and pre-Roman civilisation, it ranks low in terms of tourist appeal among Italian areas. Regardless, this rough alpine territory, racked by earthquakes regularly, remains […]
