Italy to demand Covid-19 vaccination certificate for indoor venues.
Written by crest887fm on July 23, 2021
Italy is introducing a mandatory Covid vaccination certificate from 6 August, the latest country in Europe to announce such a scheme.
The move will allow those aged 12 and over who have received at least one jab to access a range of venues, including indoor restaurants, cinemas and gyms.
However, after disagreements within the governing coalition, the pass will not be needed for transport.
The virus is surging again in Italy, driven by the delta variant.
Italy has confirmed more than 4.3 million infections since the start of the outbreak, with nearly 128,000 Covid-related deaths.
The number of new cases doubled over the past week, with more than 5,000 infections reported on Thursday.
