Tokyo, 55 new cases, maximum from the beginning of may
The Tokyo metropolitan government confirmation 55 new cases of infection of the coronavirus in the capital on Wednesday, marking the maximum daily level from the beginning of may. Recent developments reinforce the concerns of health authorities about a possible new peak of infections in Japan, although the metropolis has experienced a phase of decline cases of the disease until the end of may. The new wave, according to experts, it is manifested starting from the revocation of a state of emergency, which occurred on the 25th of last month in the remaining 5 prefectures including the capital city of Tokyo.
You can visit relatives, but only within the region in which you are already located. Motor activity is also allowed away from home and in public parks and gardens, which are reopened. Some production and industrial activities restart, including the manufacturing and construction sectors. These are some of the measures contained in the Prime Ministerial Decree of 26 April of Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, which establishes the guidelines for the beginning of phase 2 of the coronavirus emergency (UPDATES – THE SPECIAL – THE DIFFUSION IN ITALY IN GRAPHS AND MAPS). However, one point, the one concerning the relatives, was the subject of a clarification during the day: sources from Palazzo Chigi have made it known that “stable emotional relationships” do not mean friends. Here are all the other questions and answers (PHOTOS) published on the government website (FAQ ON STEP 2 ON THE GOVERNMENT WEBSITE).
Can I move to visit someone?
Movements are allowed to meet only your relatives (see following FAQ), which must be considered among the movements justified by necessity. It is however strongly recommended to limit meetings with non-cohabitants to the maximum, as this increases the risk of contagion. During these meetings the following must be respected: the ban on gathering, the interpersonal distancing of at least one meter and the obligation to use masks for the protection of the respiratory tract (THE CHOICES OF THE REGIONS FOR PHASE 2 – THE CALENDAR OF REOPENINGS – HOW THE TRANSPORT WILL BE – THE ATECO CODES OF THE ACTIVITIES THAT RE-OPEN).
Who are the relatives with whom it is allowed to meet, according to article 1, paragraph 1, letter a), of the Dpcm of 26 April 2020?
The area to which the term “relatives” may refer may indirectly derive, systematically, from the rules on kinship and affinity, as well as from the jurisprudence on the subject of civil liability. In light of these references, it must be considered that the “relatives” to whom the Dpcm refers include: spouses, cohabiting partners, partners of civil unions, people who are linked by a stable emotional bond, as well as relatives up to the sixth degree (such as, for example, the children of cousins with each other) and relatives up to the fourth degree (such as, for example, the spouse’s cousins). A further clarification came from the Interior Ministry in a circular sent to the prefects: the term joint includes “the spouses, the relationships of kinship, affinity and civil union, as well as the relationships characterized by ‘lasting and significant commonality of life and affections'” , as established by a judgment of the Cassation of 2014.

For example, it is justified by reasons of necessity to move to shop, to buy newspapers, to go to the pharmacy, or in any case to buy goods necessary for daily life, or to go to any of the open businesses (see FAQ). In addition, every exit from home for outdoor sports or motor activities is justified.

The new decree was presented on 26 April by President Giuseppe Conte, but there were many questions from citizens who asked for clarifications on what can be done and what cannot. Palazzo Chigi replied by publishing the Faq on the dpcm of April 26 on the official website: from whom are the relatives to motor activity, here are the main news (QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ON PHASE 2 – GOVERNMENT FAQ ON THE DPCM).

The area allowed for travel has been expanded with the permission to move within the Region to which it belongs and no longer just the Municipality. Moving from one region to another, however, is only allowed for proven reasons of urgency, health or work.

The government has also granted the celebration of the funeral, which can preferably be held outside and with a maximum of 15 people. Everyone will have to maintain social distancing and use masks.
When there is an obligation to wear masks

According to the draft, those who fired at the beginning of an emergency for “justified objective reason” will be able to withdraw the withdrawal by requesting Cig at the same time notwithstanding the dismissal date, regardless of the number of employees of the company. The measure applies to employment relationships between February 23rd and the layoffs, in force since March 17th. The employment relationship would therefore be restored “without interruption” and “without charges or penalties for the employer” (THE CHOICES OF THE REGIONS FOR PHASE 2 – THE CALENDAR OF REOPENINGS – HOW THE TRANSPORT WILL BE – THE ATECO CODES OF THE ACTIVITIES THAT REOPEN).

New appropriations for the Third sector
120 million more coming, reads in the draft, for voluntary associations and third sector entities engaged in projects “to deal with social and welfare emergencies” linked to the Coronavirus epidemic.

From relatives to walks, from minors to rules for shops and universities: Palazzo Chigi has published a list of questions on its website on the provisions contained in the latest Dpcm and in force since May 4, with related answers. UPDATES
On Phase 2, starting from May 18, it opens up to differentiated choices according to the territories. The criterion is: fewer infections, more openings. However, if there are inconsistent choices on the part of the Regions and in contrast with the latest decree, they can be challenged. This, in a nutshell, what was reported by the Minister for Regional Affairs Francesco Boccia to the representatives of the regions to face phase 2 of the coronavirus emergency.
The regional presidents, however, claim their autonomy. With the presidents of the Lega, FI and Fdi regions who write to the Prime Minister and the President of the Republic asking to “normalize the emergency” and to respect their competences. The clash over what will happen from May 4 with the easing of anti-Covid measures 19 is rekindled. (THE UPDATES – THE SPECIAL – GRAPHICS – THE PHOTOS SYMBOL).
“With great collaboration I request a prior comparison”
“If there are inconsistent ordinances (to the Dpcm, ed) I send a warning – explained Boccia – a letter with the form indicating the inconsistent parts and the request to remove them (only in case of loosening of the measures). If it does not happen, I am forced to appeal to the TAR or to the Consulta. “According to the Minister for Regional Affairs,” to reach a shared solution, the letter indicating the violations of the ordinance makes more sense than the protection of health and if they are not modified they turn into a warning, with respect to the appeal. “” I do not immediately challenge – he specified – but with great collaboration I write to you and even before I request a preventive comparison “(ZAIA:” YOU CAN CLOSE – SAVE ON PHASE 2 : “GOVERNMENT LISTEN TO US” – SILERI: “FRIENDS ARE STABLE AFFECTIONS”)
“Contagion down equals multiple openings and vice versa”
Boccia then spoke to the governors of differentiated openings in the different regions according to the trend of the infections. The principle, he said, is “contagion down equal more openings and vice versa. You will discuss the monitoring with the Minister of Health Hope. Once the monitoring has been defined, it will be possible to make differentiations” SPORT – WHO ARE THE “JOINTS”? – THE ATECO CODES OF THE ACTIVITIES THAT REOPEN).
“State aid rule will be in a forthcoming DL”
In Europe, Boccia said, “Amendola (Vincenzo Amendola, Minister for European Affairs, ed) has done an excellent job “on the state aid rule” in the form of direct subsidies, tax breaks or repayable advances, aid to businesses in primary production of agricultural products, which will make it possible to overcome existing constraints until the end of the year ” The rule, he explained, will be included in a forthcoming legislative decree and “will affect regional legislation and consequent calls”.
“It is very important to give a signal of unity”
“The goal is always to protect citizens. It is very important to give a signal of unity – Boccia said – If we are not united we cannot ask citizens. We need unity, seriousness and responsibility”.
The letter from the center-right governors
However, the appeal for unity clashes with the position of some governors who contest the timetable dictated by the Prime Minister. Some presidents of the Regions, according to what ANSA learns, consider it unacceptable that the government continues to dictate rules valid for all territories without taking into account the powers of Regions and mayors, and many regions have adopted autonomous ordinances. Orders that Boccia asked to withdraw, clashing with the refusal of Luca Zaia, Giovanni Toti, Massimiliano Fedriga, from Lombardy and Sicily. So much so that in a letter – addressed to Boccia, Conte, to the Chambers and to the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella and written by the center-right governors of Lombardy, Piedmont, Liguria, Friuli Venezia Giulia, Sardinia, Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata, Abruzzo, Molise, Abruzzo, and by the president of the autonomous province of Trento – reads: “It seems absolutely necessary that the current structure of the Dpcm April 26, 2020, based on rules strictly provided for the type of economic activity carried out only and with the possibility of adopting, in the individual regions, only more restrictive measures, is reformed as it is not endowed with the necessary flexibility capable of recognizing the Regions, where the epidemiological situation has improved and the forecast models of contagion in sustained decrease, the possibility of applying less stringent rules in their territories those foreseen at national level, with a compression of the freedoms cos strictly proportionate to the need to protect collective health “.
