Italy has beefed up its measures to curb a wave of Covid infections by introducing new rules that target unvaccinated people, APA reports citing BBC.
Only those who have been vaccinated or recently recovered from Covid will be allowed to go to the theatre, cinemas, live music venues and major sporting events.
A so-called Covid green pass, which shows proof of vaccination, will now be required to use hotels and local public transport as well.
The measures came into effect today and will remain in place until at least the middle of next month. Infection rates have been rising gradually in Italy since mid-October.
But the country is not alone in placing restrictions on the unvaccinated. Other European countries have adopted similar measures in response to rising infections as winter approaches.
In November, Austria took the drastic step of imposing a lockdown for the unvaccinated.
Since then, Germany's leaders have agreed to bar unvaccinated people from many public venues, and Greece announced monthly fines of €100 (£85; $113) for anyone over 60 who remains unvaccinated.
