In Italy, the super green pass, among other things, has inhibited children from participating in their favorite sports.
We reported on Italy’s efforts to mandate that its citizens have proof of taking the COVID-19 vaccine in order to live within the country. Many Italians have protested the vaccine mandates.
According to the Lonely Planet on January 10, 2022:
Italy introduced a green pass last summer that certifies the holder has recently tested negative for COVID-19 or is vaccinated or recovered from the virus. Similar to health passes in France, it is used to grant the holder access to many non-essential services across the country. In December the pass was reinforced and became what local media have dubbed the “super green pass” with the testing option removed in order to encourage vaccine uptake as COVID-19 cases continue to rise.
Starting today, the super green pass will be extended to more venues and activities including bars, restaurants and any indoor venues where food and drink are served, even for bar service. It is also required to access public transport, hotels, ski lifts, swimming pools, museums, exhibitions, cultural venues, spas, theme parks and more. The measures apply to anyone over the age of 12. In essence, this means vaccination or recovery is required for such activities.
Below is a very moving video showing Italian children asking for help so they can play the sports they love again.
