To control the spread of new variant of coronavirus ie; Omicron, Italy has banned unvaccinated travellers from travelling. 

Such passengers will have limited access to many places and services. The discovery of Omicron has created problems for the tourism sector everywhere. But in Italy, the number of coronavirus cases is increasing.

Unvaccinated people will get a basic green health pass after they test negative for coronavirus in a PCR test taken within the last 48 hours. The country's police have also started implementing various measures from the early hours. Anyone caught traveling on a bus, metro, tram or train without a health certificate will be fined an automatic 400-euro (US$450).

Italy has the highest vaccine rate in Europe, with 80 percent of the population receiving it once or twice. Another 15 percent have received a booster shot. The country has seen a surge in coronavirus infections in recent weeks and the number reached 15,000 on Sunday.

Rome has stricted the weekend restrictions and made face masks required to be worn outside, or on shopping streets. In 2020, Italy was the first European country to be hit by coronavirus infection and also had the highest death toll. So far, Italy has 51.1 lakh cases of coronavirus infection and 1.34 lakh deaths.
