🚨👀 BREAKING. Italy's government approves by decree *compulsory* #Covid vaccinations for residents older than 50.
Vaccine passports will be necessary also to enter shops, banks, and hairdressers/barbers 👀🚨
1. The only accessible shops without the so called “Green Pass” (which means double vaccination or LTF which costs 10 euro or more and cannot be self-administered in Italy) will be supermarkets and pharmacies.
Ora che nel Regno Unito ci sono circa 50mila casi al giorno di #Coronavirus, quanto c’è da preoccuparsi?

In the following thread - like I used to do in a previous life - I'll try to explain what's going on politically in #Italy (not an easy task, tbh) & what are the possible outcomes after President Mattarella asked former ECB president Mario Draghi to form a new, crucial government
1. First of all: as you know former PM Conte left because he lost his majority.
In a nutshell: former PM Matteo Renzi decided he had to go officially because "Conte lacked a long term strategy", so he and his party (whose 18 MPs were crucial) left the governing coalition"

AstraZeneca's CEO on the accusations from Europe after the delay of Oxford vaccine supplies, some... (1/2) 🚨💉
(2/2) ...revealing details of Covid vaccine contracts signed by Astrazeneca with UK and EU ("no obligations, just best effort" for the latter), why Johnson's government has taken some advantage and why the one-dose strategy is the "right one"
