Sondrio, 29 May 2020 – La Valley “observed special”. Sondrio was chosen, together with seven other municipalities in the province of Sondrio (Bormio, Cercino, Cosio Valtellino, Montagna in Valtellina, Morbegno, Traona and Tresivio), out of a total of two thousand in Italy, for the seroprevalence survey of the infection from Coronavirus which aims to verify how many people have developed antibodies, even in the absence of symptoms. The investigation was initiated by Ministry of Health, upon indication of the Technical Scientific Committee, with Istat, the National Statistical Institute.
The test is performed on a sample of 150 thousand people, about 500 in our province, distributed by gender, age and activity. THE results survey, disclosed anonymously, may also be used for others Scientific studies and for comparative analysis with other European countries.

Participating is not mandatory but to obtain reliable results it is essential that the selected people join. These days the Italian Red Cross whoever is part of the sample is calling from a number that starts with 065510 to make an appointment for the blood sample, which can be performed at one of the identified centers or at home in cases of fragile subjects.
The region Lombardia will communicate the outcome of the examination to each participant: in the event of a positive diagnosis, the interested party will be placed in home isolation and contacted to perform the nasopharyngeal swab to check for any contagious state. For the entire procedure, confidentiality will be total, guaranteed by an anonymous identification number to acquire the test result.
