“We are all a little worried about the increase in cases” of positive people in Covid-19. “Unfortunately, this variant largely escapes the normal rules that have helped us to cope with the pandemic. The numbers we see, moreover, are underestimated because most of those who have symptoms do not swab. Almost only those who have need for a sickness certificate “. This was told to Adnkronos Salute by the president of the National Federation of Medical Orders (Fnomceo), Filippo Anelli, according to whom the Fimmg family doctors estimate of 30% of people with symptoms who refuse to take the test, ” he is optimistic: I fear there are more “.
“Most citizens – observed Anelli – prefer not to swab in pharmacies or in structures that can trace it. When it is okay, you do the DIY test and, if you are responsible, you go out when you are negativized. But there are many positives. that do not isolate themselves. And this, in my opinion, is at the basis of the abnormal spread of infections that occurs, among other things, in this summer phase when you are outdoors a lot and life inside closed structures reduces “.
For the president of the Medici, “there is an anomaly compared to the previous waves when, at the end of June, the infections were almost zero. And this anomaly is also linked to the fact that the tracing is skipped in the face of a very contagious variant “. Hence the appeal of Anelli: “Today, a reflection must be made on the tracing of Covid-19 infections. Nowadays few tests are being carried out. But I believe that this question must be posed to the Ministry of Health, to understand how to get a picture today more precise than contagions. Medicine is based on this: we collect the data, we know the reality of the disease, we observe how it evolves and we try to intervene. we are not even able to say precisely how to intervene effectively “.
On the part of the doctors, therefore, “the appeal to the ministry – the number one of Fnomceo reiterates – is to restart tracing, in such a way as to understand the extent of the phenomenon and better define the measures to stem the problem and not to be faced with the unpleasant surprise that this new phase of the pandemic is out of control. Up to now we have been good, we have vaccinated, most of the population has immunized “. However, “the management of this last phase must be taken over”, rings admonished.
