In March, Pope Francis established a special commission to look for possible solutions to the socioeconomic challenges of the post-pandemic world.

“The world will be different. It won't be the same after Covid. So let's try to do something better, not worse, or not the same, because it was not good enough. We don't want to restore anything that was unfair, unjust and insecure. We want to regenerate something new.”

The commission's conclusions aren't public. They say the first months of work haven't been easy and that the future isn't very reassuring, as the number of Covid-19 cases continues to rise.

“Covid has also shown our incapacity to address a global problem, a common problem, with common solutions.”

The measures implemented in Vatican City are the same as those in Italy. Among them is the mandatory use of face masks.

The pope has rarely worn it in public, but he's been attentive to respecting physical distances.

“I think now we are trying to convince him. I think we are almost there because he started to use it I think. I hope.”

The commission has addressed questions like changes in the labor market, rising unemployment and migration.
