    At the moment about two-thirds of Italy is a white zone, where most of the nation's coronavirus restrictions can be dropped, except for the obligation to wear facemasks and respect physical distancing.
    "I insisted on having of gradual path (for the easing of restrictions), but on Friday we will probably have 99% of the country being a white zone," Speranza said at a convention organized by the national council of psychologist guilds (CNOP).
