The obligation will remain until June 15 only in Closed places where the risk of contagion is greater.
The government’s choices are welcomed with relief, but also with some controversy. In the world of cinema there is anger and worry. For the president of the Union of publishers and distributors of Anica, Luigi Lonigro, the extension of the Ffp2 in theaters could definitively bring one compartment to your knees for some time already in a deep crisis. The trend of stationary infections, yesterday they were counted 58.861, 133 were the victims, but scientists still recommend caution. Given the high speed of circulation of the virus good to maintain prudent behaviorwith the use of masks in closed, crowded places and wherever there is a risk of contagion, comments the Prevention Director of the Ministry of Health, Gianni Rezza.
