(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 9 – The CTS panel of experts advising the
government on its response to the COVID-19 pandemic has proposed
closing down all non-essential shops and activities at weekends,
along the lines of the restrictions imposed during the Christmas
holidays, given the rise in contagion, sources said after a
meeting of the panel on Tuesday.
    The idea is to further prevent contact between people to combat
infection, even in moderate-coronavirus risk yellow zones.
    The panel also proposed tougher measures in high-contagion risk
red zones like those adopted a year ago in the northern town of
Codogno, which was sealed off after becoming one of the nation’s
first coronavirus hotspots, according to the sources.
    The experts also stressed the need to extend the vaccination
campaign to as many people as possible as soon as possible.
