Bonaccini: “No to the health passport”
“No to health passport: it would be unmanageable, but how do you do it? It takes a national measure, one cannot decide it according to one’s territory. Then how do you manage? We must also be careful not to give one region an oil burner rather than another. ” The president of the Emilia-Romagna region said so Stefano Bonaccini, during a video interview on the Facebook page of Cantiere Bologna.
Serological test campaign, the audience widens
The campaign of serological screening wanted by the Emilia Romagna Region to ‘hunt’ the virus in the area, it continues and is strengthened: in fact, to be tested – as anticipated yesterday by the Regional Councilor for Health Policies, Raffaele Donini – priests, i blood donors, i pharmacists affiliated, operators of associations in the ambulance system, in addition to taxi drivers, car drivers with driver and public transport operators in the railway and road sector identified by the respective companies.
The expansion of the audience of people affected by the new battery of tests, which will always be performed on a basis voluntary, was decided by the Region and placed black on white in a circular of the general direction of the Department of Health Policies.
“We wanted to take another step forward in the fight against the virus, because the results obtained so far indicate that the choice of carpet swabs and serological tests spread throughout the territory has been right – explains the councilor Donini -. Of course, adhesion to screening is voluntary, but of great health value, because it allows us to better know the methods of circulation of the virus and the risk of spreading in specific areas of the population which, as in this case, have more frequent social contacts and widespread. Serological tests are a very useful tool in setting future strategies for contrast and prevention, so it is desirable that as many people as possible adhere to this proposal. ”
Serological tests allow us to understand, through the presence of antibodies, if the person has had contact with the virus and thus traces a sort of mapping on the territory. If the result is positive, the swab is carried out to check if the disease is ongoing; if the swab is also positive, taking charge is activated which contemplates observation, isolation of the patient and any therapy.
