“We cannot go back to a stage of stopping things”
The state agent ruled out stopping activities in any sector again and anticipated that will evaluate that the vaccination certificate is requested for some activities that involve mass meetings.

I am not the one who makes that decision, that decision is made based on technical criteria and it will be a topic that will be discussed at the table next Monday. The other big issue is whether it will be mandatory for some activities to present the vaccination certificate, particularly for leisure activities that involve mass gatherings; it will be necessary to see if something of the gauges will be revised. What I can say is that We cannot go back to a stage of stopping things, we have to move forward, we have to do it carefully, but if any measure has to be adjusted, the decision that is the most appropriate will be made, “he said.

The route is very clear, we yearn to be present for all the benefits it gives, “he explained.
