The Regions no longer want to count the asymptomatic Covid positives

The Regions want to review a series of rules, starting with the count of positive and asymptomatic cases at Covid. The letter addressed to the government asks to release the positives without symptoms after 7 days.

The tracking is completely skipped, pharmacies and laboratories are stormed to make swabs since before Christmas, the ASL are losing control of the situation while hospitalizations are increasing. The picture of the pandemic, at least since the beginning of 2022, is more or less this. We travel at a pace of 200 thousand Covid cases a day, with the currently positive ones jumping to unprecedented levels. In this context the Regions want to ask the government for changes to the rules, which can make the path easier for those who have Covid but are asymptomatic and streamline the workload that weighs on the health sector. After the proposal to cancel the daily bulletin of Covid cases, a letter will depart from the Conference of Regions between today and tomorrow. The recipient is Mario Draghi’s government and the requests are different.

The asymptomatic are not sick, the line of the Regions

Everything revolves around the asymptomatic, which to date – thanks to the vaccination against Covid – represent about two thirds of the currently positive. In short, we are talking about millions of people. According to the Regions, it is time to use a different approach: the asymptomatic are not sick, therefore the definition of the Covid case should be revised. Distinguish who develops the disease and who does not, so who is left without any symptoms should not even be counted in the bulletin. And then we need to streamline the quarantine for those who are vaccinated with three doses, are infected and have no symptoms, the Regions still say. This is the US model, which predicts that after 7 days without symptoms a positive with three doses can go out freely and return to a more or less normal life.

Discard the control swab at the end of the quarantine

The governors, who had already asked not to count the asymptomatic positives who arrive at the hospital for other reasons, want to streamline the procedures further. The goal, in addition to the sustainability of the whole system, is also not to end up in the orange zone, or even worse in the red zone. For this reason, anyone who has no symptoms but is still in hospital for any other reason takes a control swab and is positive, according to the Regions should not be counted in the bulletin and in the decision-making indicators of the ISS. The proposals of the governors to President Draghi, however, do not end there: to make the end of isolation procedure easier – therefore for those who have contracted Covid – the control pad for asymptomatic patients would also be eliminated. In short, the idea of ​​the Regions in summary is this: if you test positive for the virus and have no symptoms, you stay at home for seven days and then go ahead.
