Concerns high on migration, rising pandemic cases in Italy

Northern Italy increased migration

A growing monthly influx of migrants coming on Italy visit visa to the Friuli Venezia Giulia region of Italy has created concern. This was expressed by Massimiliano Fedriga, the governor of the region of north-eastern Italy.

Nearly 1,000 migrants have been arriving every month in Friuli Venezia Giulia since May 2020. Fedriga has called the present situation unmanageable. The spike in the number of migrants happened after COVID-19 lockdown measures were lifted by the Government of Italy.

The comments of the Governor were addressed to the parliamentary committee so as to control the implementation of the Schengen Agreement on 5th August 2020.

When the COVID-19 lockdown was in place, the epidemiological situation in Friuli Venezia Giulia had reached a very satisfactory level. But the recent relapse of the pandemic happened with increased cases. This has been largely been due to people who came from abroad as on an Italy tourist visa or from foreign people.

The region has a crisis owing to not having enough facilities available for quarantine. Fedriga was also skeptical about deploying the essential 700 army officers at the border to monitor the arrival of infected people.

Even the overall growth in COVID-19 infections in Italy is a matter of great concern. Fedriga stated that in proportion to the country’s population, Italy has a 10 times higher rate of infections from the pandemic. This is clear when the number of cases is compared to those of Herzegovina and Bosnia.

Fedriga has called for prohibiting the migrant influx from happening illegally. He also reiterated the inability of Friuli Venezia Giulia to manage the increasing count of illegal migrants.

It was in July 2020 that Germany had stressed on the necessity of a coordinated platform to strengthen cooperation amongst the EU member states against illegal migration. This happened during the conference of the Interior Ministers that was held in Vienna.
