The German-speaking autonomous province in the Dolomites mountains borders the newly locked Austria and has long nurtured a certain libertine feeling. The province of South Tyrol ranked among the least vaccinated in Italy during the pandemic, registering between 5 and 10 percentage points below the national average in the youngest age groups. The 20 cities met the new provincial criteria requiring restrictions: more than 800 cases per 100,000 inhabitants in one week, more than five new cases in one day and a vaccination rate of less than 70% of the population over 12 years old .
Restrictions in towns north of Bolzano include the closure of bars and restaurants after 6 p.m., a nighttime curfew from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. and a requirement to wear an FFP2 face mask on public transport, according to the report. ‘arrangement. ROME – Twenty small towns in the autonomous province of South Tyrol in northern Italy were partially closed on Wednesday in an attempt to contain the rise in coronavirus infections and save the key winter tourist season in one from the least vaccinated regions of Italy.
But the rise nonetheless prompted proposals to place restrictions on unvaccinated people to prevent a lockdown that would hamper an economic restart after Italy’s gross domestic product fell 8.9% last year. Italy, where the epidemic in Europe began in February 2020, has fully vaccinated more than 84% of its population over 12 years old. Italy is experiencing an increase in infections as in other Western European countries, but to a more measured degree, recording around 10,000 new cases and less than 100 deaths per day.
