Dozens have COVID-19 after Trieste, Gorizia protests

All unvaccinated

(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 28 - The head of the anti-COVID-19 taskforce of the north-eastern region of Friuli Venezia Giulia said Thursday that 46 people have the coronavirus after taking part in the recent protests in Trieste and Gorizia against the Green Pass health certificate being obligatory for Italian places of work.
    Taskforce chief Fabio Barbone said all 46 were unvaccinated for COVID-19.
    "For days the protestors took to the streets without facemasks, spending lots of time with outsiders, elbow to elbow," said Barbone.
    "If there were a few people who were asymptomatic, it was easier for the virus to spread.
    "It's the perfect storm". (ANSA).
