Many Italians are joining the Covid parties. With the aim of contracting the disease and thus obtaining the digital certificate without the need for vaccination. This phenomenon worries the Italian health authorities, especially in the north of the country.
Most of those who attended this Young parties, many of them are of school age, but there are also old people. Asghar’s perception was, according to the statements of the health coordinator of the Bolzano region, Patrick Franzoni, that “the disease is not dangerous.” However, the official assured Corriere della Sera that “there are far-reaching consequences”.
At parties, infected people live together, drink from the same bottle, kiss and cuddle non-sick people, though anyone who has intentionally infected someone else can respond in court. Italian authorities are already investigating some of these interactions.
At least one of the people who went to a limb tested positive and ended up in the hospital. ‘It was a huge mistake’, the patient admits to Corriere de Veneto, noting, however, that he is still not sure it is Covid-19, claiming only that he has pneumonia.
Many who go to these parties do not want to be vaccinated, says Patrick Franzoni, who also revealed that the vaccination rate in northern Italy is about 78%, comparing “Covid-19 to the flu”.
In Italy, the digital certificate is available to those who have been vaccinated and recovered, as long as they have contracted the disease in the past six months.
