As we now know, today March 31, 2022 ends the state of emergency decided by the Government in relation to the pandemic situation from Covid, Then from April 1 there will be some gradual changes to the many restrictions to which we have become accustomed in these two years.

Not all of them will be eliminated in the short term and some will last a few more months and of course these gradual changes will be respected as long as the contagion curve does not get too bad. We also remember that from March 28th we said goodbye to the division by colors of the Regions and Italy can be considered all white.

In short, we must always keep an eye on the progress of the pandemic and the situation relating to ordinary hospitalizations and intensive care.

Let's see what will change from tomorrow.
