“The Green Pass is not a nudge to get vaccinated, it is a not-so-gentle push,″ 

Oh, you clued into that one, did you?

Imagine the gall of not allow the unvaccinated to put the rest of the population at risk for continued spread and mutation?

Oh the horror of mandated vaccination! (shh, don’t mention measles or any of the other long-mandated vaccines)

Those supporting it are extremely short sighted and have learned nothing from history.

Its not going to end there. They’ll find themselves disadvantaged in the future because their “health pass” ,or whatever it has morphed into, fails to measure up in some way. “Finally they came for me.”

Not only health workers. Youngest brother has worked at the Rome Opera House for 30 years. He was required to vaccinate if he wanted to keep his job.

Do teach us what happened the last time Covid-19 hit Italy!

> Its not going to end there. 

Sure it won’t, the number of infected will go down, the country will open up…..

Ah, Italy, the original country of fascism. So sad to see this.

Are you saying the vaccinated are in danger from the infection? In that case, what is the point of vaccination?

As for mutation, that is what all viruses do all the time. Again, what is the point?

You'd have preferred it in the US, huh?

The more people who are vaccinated, the less the virus spreads. This reduces the likelihood of getting sick, given the Delta variant isn't as affected by the vaccine (though the vaccine is better at keeping you alive if you get it than being unvaccinated).

As for mutation, that is what all viruses do all the time. Again, what is the point?

The fewer people who contract the virus, the fewer chances there are for mutation. This is all extremely basic stuff. But you won't find it on Gab, or Stormfront, so I can see why you wouldn't know it.

Your take on the situation is extremely simplistic. If nature were that simple! Time will show what a massive blunder such thinking is making, and what it leads to.

It’s not simple, it’s concise. Read a book.

Italy's policy is even more stricter than France's policy

Italy's policy applies not just to public workers but private workers too (France's policy only applies to public workers)

Italy has a right-wing government - even Steve Bannon paid them a visit

Only 1-in-4 Italians are against the Covid Green Pass, while 3-in-4 Italians are already fully vaccinated (so they're already qualified for the Green Pass, so why would they care to the other 1-in-4 Italians who don't care about public health)

Italy was so badly hit by Covid - remember how fast Italians were dying, it almost became a meme

So we should see the virtual disapearance of covid from Italy. This will be interesting.

Very absolutist binary thinking on your part.

We may see an elimination of Covid from Italy. But likely we’ll just see an extreme reduction in cases. You know, the real world nuanced result rather than a binary prediction of an unrealistic outcome.

And yet the science and scientists say it. But I place more credibility on you as an anonymous Internet poster over science and scientists. What do they know?! Right?
