(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 8 – Health Minister Roberto Speranza has
called for “utmost prudence” amid alarm at scenes of crowds in
Italy’s cities at the weekend, the first since before Christmas
in which almost the whole nation was a “yellow zone”.
    In Italy’s tiered system of COVID-19-linked measures, in yellow
zones restrictions are relaxed significantly, with shops open
and bars and restaurants allowed to serve customers at tables
until 6pm. As of Monday, 17 regions-autonomous provinces are yellow zones,
after Sardinia and Trentino were bumped down a tier.
    But Alto Adige remains a red zone, meaning all bars, restaurants
and non-essential shops must close, as is the province of
Perugia and some towns in the province of Terni in Umbria and
some towns in Abruzzo and Molise.
    There is also concern about the spread of new COVID-19 variants.
    Cases of the highly infectious British strain, for example, have
been detected in schools in Marche. (ANSA).
