Over 1mn Green Passes downloaded Monday

And more third jabs given than first ones for first time

(ANSA) - ROME, OCT 19 - Over one million 'Green Pass' COVID health passes were downloaded Monday, a new daily record, according to the government's portal.
    The exact number was 1,049,384.
    Some 914,000 passes were downloaded after a COVID test and 130,000 after a vaccination, the figures showed.
    Also Monday, for the first time the number of third doses surpassed that of the first jabs, at 49,660 to 44,376.
    Some 89,078 Italians had their second jab Monday.
    Downloads of Italy's Green Pass have been surging with the new regime in which the COVID-19 health certificate is obligatory to access places of work starting its first full week on Monday.
    The Green Pass, which shows that a person is vaccinated for COVID-19, has recovered from it in the last six months or has tested negative in the last few days, became obligatory for private and public-sector workers on Friday.
    So far over 100 million Green Passes have been downloaded in Italy. (ANSA).
