We must speed up the completion of immunization and make sure that each of us does not pose a danger to others, stopping new waves and the circulation of the virus. closures, from the point of view of the real economy, means returning to uncertainty, the blocking of consumption and the decline in GDP and an increase in poverty. The priority is to get out of the pandemic “, are the words of the number one of Intesa.
