Italy has become the latest country in Europe to tighten restrictions on those unvaccinated.

On Monday, its “super” health pass came into effect, which allows those vaccinated or recovered from COVID to access cinemas, theatres, concerts, major sporting events and indoor restaurants.

Previously, Italy’s basic health pass was enough to get into such venues. The pass can be obtained by those inoculated, recovered from COVID or providing a negative test.

Italy’s basic pass, first introduced in August, was extended to the workplace in October. It is now also needed to use local transport.

Italy was the first European country to be hit by the pandemic in early 2020 and has so far reported more than 134,000 deaths. Almost 85% of the population aged over 12 is vaccinated.

Even though infections are rising, it has currently been less impacted than its neighbours, with around 15,000 to 20,000 new daily cases reported recently.
