The government of Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni will reinstate healthcare workers who refuse to be vaccinated against Kovid-19.

The announcement was made by the new Minister of Health, Orazio Schillaci, who is considered a “technician” for his role as a doctor and academic.

In a memo, the ministry said Schillaci considered it “appropriate to initiate a gradual return to normality in activities and behaviour”.

“Considering the alarming lack of medical and health personnel pointed out by hospital staff regarding healthcare workers who are subject to suspension due to non-compliance with the vaccination obligation, the procedure is in the process of determining the non-fulfillment of the vaccination obligation. Before the suspension period expires, these personnel are in the process of reintegrating into society. allow it”.

Currently, anti-vaccine health professionals are far from working in Italy, including having their salaries suspended as they directly deal with high-risk categories for Covid-19.

Meloni, who was sworn in as prime minister less than a week ago, has always campaigned against health restrictions to contain the novel coronavirus pandemic and didn’t even mention vaccines in his first speech in Parliament as head of government.

Another important change that Schillaci announced is about the Covid case report, which is currently daily but will be weekly.

The news was published on the same day that Italian president Sergio Mattarella warned that it was still not possible to “declare final victory” over the pandemic.

“We still need responsibility and precaution,” the president said, adding that “the most dramatic period” is over.
