Austria to reintroduce full lockdowns in European first

Restrictions should be imposed on the non-vaccinated if Italy’s virus situation worsens, a minister said today, reports our Italy Correspondent Nick Squires. 

During the worst of the pandemic, Italy’s 20 regions were designated either yellow, orange or red, depending on the number of contagions, with yellow signifying the most moderate number of cases and red the highest. 

The colour designations have not been used for a while but if any region turns orange again, a special lockdown for the unvaccinated should be considered, says Pierpaolo Sileri, the undersecretary for health.

“A lockdown for the unvaccinated is not the strategy to be implemented with the current numbers, but it could be weighed in the case of a move to an orange zone,” he told Italian radio.

“It should be kept on the table, like many other options, but the situation is under control”.

The governors of five regions have called for new restrictions to be imposed on the unvaccinated, as has happened in neighbouring Austria.
