The government dismisses the reopening, Roman Prodi call theEurope to play its role of “anchor of democracy” if it does not want to “disappear from the geographical map”. In a Sunday where the data show a degrowth trend for the third consecutive day, giving an epidemiological dimension to the containment measures, the executive clarifies that nothing or almost will start again from the 3rd April. The official is missing, but the words of the health ministers, Roberto Speranza, and Regional Affairs, Francesco Boccia, are unequivocal. He said it on Saturday the Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and two representatives of his government reiterated this on Sunday. Clearly.
Prodi: “Like war, Draghi is right” – While the week that begins will mark a crucial moment for him too European aid. In the evening, the former President of the European Commission made himself heard, Romano Prodi: “It’s like war, the comparison of Dragons it’s scientifically right. It is not the crisis of 2008 that starts from finance and then takes the rest of the economy, takes everyone: the restaurateurs and those who have to go to eat. ” There exists, explained the former premier at Che tempo che fa, “a widespread idea that European solidarity end up helping others, but above all Dutch they must understand: if a big crisis happens to those who sell theirs tulips? “.
“Strategy or we disappear from the map” – A non-random reference, given that i Netherlands are, together with Germany, in the group of falcons who opposes the Eurobonds asked byRome-Paris axis. In Europe, he added, “there is not one strategy for the future “, but” the group of countries that reject austerity by definition has become much stronger. Finally the danger is perceived. The first step of the European Central Bank it helps us, ”but one is needed “Common strategy and a strong immediate incentive for businesses. ” “We do not understand – concluded Prodi – that Europe has remained the only one still democracy. Do we want to understand that there are 23 Chinese each Italian and 18 Chinese each German? Either we are together or we disappear from the map of the world”.
Hope: “Sacrifice not very short” – Waiting to understand what Europe’s moves will be, Italy is preparing for the week that will lead to the expiry of the decree that introduced the containment measures. And during, several representatives of the executive indicate it, it is almost certain that they will be extended. “We are still in the full of the epidemic. It would be a serious mistake to drop your guard right now. It would end – explained Speranza – to frustrate what has been done to date. The sacrifices of these weeks are serious. ” Even many virologists have already expressed their opinion and all agree in saying that looking at the contagion curve – which slows down, but only slightly – it is premature to withdraw the containment measures April 3, the date on which the validity of the restrictive decrees expires to try to stem the spread of the coronavirus in our country. “What if the existing measures are extended? Definitely yes, we still need it. There are encouraging signs, but this is not enough. We would make a huge mistake, “said Speranza. By clarifying: “They will be extended and will not be a very short sacrifice”.
Boccia: “The measures will be lengthened” – In short, the extension is inevitable. Francesco Boccia also reiterates this: “Expiring measures will inevitably be lengthened. I think right now to talk about reopening is inopportune and irresponsible, “explained the Minister of Regional Affairs to The Interview of Maria Latella on SkyTg24. A clarification that sounds like an answer to as stated by the leader of Italia Viva Matteo Renzi, who on Saturday in an interview with the newspaper Avvenire had talked about the reopening of the factories before Easter and the schools May 4th and then he raised on Facebook he raised saying that “in a few days they will change their position and say together what we are saying alone today”. A thesis, that of the former prime minister, rejected in its entirety by scientific community that the bubble like “madness”.
The data – All while on Sunday the trend continues to decline. They touch i 97689 infected with an increase of 5,217 in the last 24 hours with a growing trend compared to Saturday when there were about 500 new cases more. In one day others register 756 deaths, bringing the overall figure of the deaths caused by the pandemic to 10,779. The growth trend on a daily basis was 5.64%, Saturday was 6.90 and Friday 7.39. The pulmonologist Luca Richeldi, member of the Technical-scientific committee of the Ministry of Health, speaks of “solid data” and “encouraging”, but warns: “The battle is long, we must be rigorous “.
The conditions to reopen: last bars and clubs – There essential condition to raise the shutters it remains that of the R0, the index of contagiousness of the virus, which must be less than 1 (a positive infects less than one person). In any case, the reopening will be gradual and it will take a long time to return to normal, because it will be necessary to prevent the creation of new outbreaks, also fueled by the circulation of asymptomatic. “Epidemiologists say that the first effects of containment are seen. However, we are not yet at the phase change. It will take time and graduality, “warned Minister Speranza. This is why, therefore, the first to open could be businesses related to essential supply chains, pharmaceutical and food, while last discotheques, cinema, night clubs and theaters.

Commenting on the boom in responses to the call of the Civil Protection for 500 nurses to send in reinforcement of colleagues engaged in the trench against the new coronavirus, his appeal is to guarantee protections and protections. “There is only one principle among nurses: taking care. And they have demonstrated it in practice, anyone who has seen it and can see it every day, unfortunately in an emergency that none of us would have ever wanted to witness. From tomorrow, since the Civil Protection will select who of them will be able to go to the pandemic front, our experts in maxiemergences will be there, joined to the task force which now includes the 300 doctors chosen with the same criterion, to truly form a unprecedented first line of assault against the virus ”.

In a country like ours, with municipalities, regions and metropolitan cities, regionalism in twenty regions has failed. Today no controversy, but as soon as we can discuss it. The question is whether the political class will have common sense to get together around a table. Of all the social classes that will be called to do so, more than ever, politics will be called to a test of maturity “. On Lombard health, he added: “He made a different choice from that of Veneto and Emilia Romagna and favored the large hospitals, the ability to maintain the socio-medical fabric on the territory was lost. I carefully avoid any kind of discussion with my colleague Attilio Fontana and we would miss more, people would not forgive us now. But talk to the general practitioners and hear what they say, the consultants are gone, “concluded Sala.

Matteo Renzi writes it on Facebook. “There is a devastating health emergency, of course. But in the background there is an economic emergency that is fought by sharing safely with jobs, not by widening the income of citizenship – continues the leader of Iv -. Politicians have the task of building the after, they cannot only comment on the present. And the after must be thought now: otherwise we chase events without preventing them. We are used to attacks, the weather will be gentleman again. We all want to go back to normal, but first we have to turn on one switch at a time. I want to tell those who say they are in a hurry, first we secure health and intensive care by tripling them, then slowly, starting from some production activities, we turn on one switch at a time.

“No money to the Municipalities that Prime Minister Conte praised so much last night.
