Salvini urges Italian authorities to seek Covid-19 vaccines anywhere


Rome (Italy) March 3 (EFE), (Camera: Álvaro Padilla).- The far-right leader Matteo Salvini urged authorities to seek vaccines anywhere in the world, following the example of Austria with Russia's Sputnik V, and criticized the supply delays and slowness of the European Union (EU) permits. SOUNDBITES OF MATTEO SALVINI, LEADER OF THE LEAGUE: "We must do it quickly. To the question of whether the Russian vaccine seems good to me, my answer is that, regardless of whether it is made in Russia, Greenland, New Zealand, San Marino or Israel, it is enough that it works and that it arrives quickly.""European governments such as Austria, Denmark, Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia and others that move 360 ??degrees are doing well.""Health is above all. It is above the bureaucracy, it is not about strategic alliances or geopolitics.""If Europe had done what it promised, we would not be like this. If the promised and paid vaccines had arrived we would have less problems. Today the reality in so many Italian regions is that they must slow down because they don't have the vaccine.""If San Marino finishes vaccinating in April, while two thirds of Italy will still be closed and worried, it means that San Marino has worked well and we should do better."
