“With the swabs and serological tests that we are massively carrying out on the whole regional territory – comments the Councilor for Health Policies, Raffaele Donini – we managed to identify and isolate a circumscribed situation, which however could become critical. At the same time, new asymptomatic cases are emerging which we could hardly have detected with the traditional strategy. We will therefore continue the screening campaign on which we have strongly focused, with the specific objective of not waiting for the virus, but to go and look for it. To intercept any new infections as soon as possible, especially among asymptomatic people as happened in both Bologna and Parma. If on the one hand – Donini closes – in our laboratories and hospitals we study and work to achieve ever more effective treatments, with great determination we continue to hunt the virus on the territory and in citizens’ homes “.
