    Thus, just on the day in which a new record of cases of covid-19 -98,000 in 24 hours, while about 140 deaths were reported-, the Italian Executive last night discussed the possibility that those vaccinated with three doses can avoid quarantines if come into contact with a positive, and would only be forced to use the FFP2 masks for 10 days. The same rule will be valid for those who have received the second dose for less than four months, and that, as in the previous case, do not show symptoms. On the contrary, the unvaccinated will not benefit from the relaxation of the norms.

    The truth is that, in recent days, in some cities of the country there have already been scenes of chaos and tension by the situation. In the city of Milan, the carabinieri had to intervene to appease the spirits of some angry citizens who had 10 hours waiting to perform a pcr due to a malfunction of the computer systems of a hospital. In Perugia, a pharmacist was assaulted by a man who was enraged to learn that self-diagnostic tests for the coronavirus had been completed, a commodity that also in Rome has become difficult to find, while, in the Piedmont region, they were canceled (until January 9) 36 train journeys due to lack of personnel.
