The selected people will be contacted by telephone by the regional centers of the Italian Red Cross to schedule an appointment for blood collection in one of the selected laboratories. The withdrawal can also be performed at home if the subject is fragile or vulnerable. At the time of contact, you will also be asked to respond to a specific questionnaire prepared by Istat, in agreement with the Technical Scientific Committee.
The Region will communicate the outcome of the exam to each participant residing in the territory. In the event of a positive diagnosis, the interested party will be placed in temporary home isolation and contacted by their regional health service or local health authority to make a nose-pharyngeal swab to check for any state of contagiousness. The confidentiality of the participants will be maintained for the duration of the survey.
All participants will be assigned an anonymous identification number for the acquisition of the test result. The link of this identification number with individuals will be managed by the investigation team and will be disclosed only to authorized bodies.
Participating is important! In the video the appeal of Antonio Veneziano, President of the Italian Red Cross – Andria Committee.
