Stop at home isolating the positives. Here’s how it works

Positive quarantine to stopThis was stated by Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health Andrea Costa. Thus, the measure providing home isolation for those who test positive for Covid, could have days. Costa talks about a new phase of the “necessary coexistence with Covid”, stating that action in this direction may arrive soon.

but hypothesisfree all» Rejected by the President of the National Federation of Medical Orders (Fnomceo) Filippo Agnelli. Not only. The possibility of stopping the quarantine of the pros is also dividing experts.

In fact, the virus continues to spread driven by the new sub-variable Omicron 5. In yesterday’s bulletin, Thursday, June 16, the new cases in the 24 hours were 36,573. The previous day was 31,885. The number of casualties was 64, an increase of 48 in the past 24 hours. 194,676 swabs were performed with a positive rate of 18.7%. But Costa repeats: I think we are very close to saying goodbye to the isolation of the positives. Let’s get into the details.

Costa’s position: “Positive quarantine towards stopping”

Procedure to provide home isolation for those who test positive for SARS-CoV-2 can be a matter of days.. This was announced by Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health Andrea optics – explains – Necessary coexistence with covid“.

Costa continues:I think we are very close to that goal, which is to stop isolation at home from the positives. On the other hand, the goal is to coexist with the virus and if we talk about coexistence we can only remove the isolation from the positives.. I am confident that in the coming weeks we will also come to this option, which will be another step towards normalcy. I think the days are also numbered to come up with this kind of measure“.

But the Free all hypothesis has benefited The president of the National Federation of Medical Orders (Fnomceo) bit Filippo Agnelli: «Positives are increasing and regression in hospitalization is regressing. The spread of the virus is very high and from today there are no longer mandatory masks so the possibility of an increase in infection is real. So I recommend a lot of caution, especially in solidarity with the most vulnerable who can be affected. The advice is to think before making decisions of this kind, because at the moment there are no conditions for such a decision“.

An infectious disease specialist is also on the same line Massimo Galli: «I still kept my foot on the brake for a bit. The numbers for the past few days, starting with the latest Gimbe monitoring data, can’t actually keep us calm and point to a reversal of the epidemic trend, with infections and deaths beginning to rise again. We are facing a possible resurgence of the epidemic, dictated by the most contagious variant Omicron 5And we can’t say now what the repercussions will be on hospitals, so I advise caution“.

He concludes: “We are all looking forward to a return to normal but the data is subjective and caution is advised. Eliminating home isolation for the pros would jeopardize the safety of the most vulnerable people. In fact, the data shows that the latest variants are not harmful and that those who do not fully respond to vaccination, such as some groups of fragile patients, can also become seriously ill.“.
