Omicron, invisible positives who self-diagnose and do not testify to positivity. The last plague

cases Corona virus disease It keeps growing but unreported and ‘self-diagnosed’ cases go hand in hand DIY tampons. Because with summer approaching, the number of those who would rather not test positive and then independently manage the infection (however endanger anyone around them) is increasing. To certify it as the International Space Station in the latest report: “At this stage, which is characterized by the circulation of highly transmissible Sars-CoV-2 variants, there may have been a sharp increase in the proportion of people who contracted unreported infection to surveillance systems for reasons of underdiagnostics or phenotypes” Self-diagnosis.” This could lead to an underestimation of the infection rate, and therefore the relative risks, and efficacy of vaccination.

Re-infections on the rise: +9.5% in the last week

Meanwhile, the proportion of infected Italians increased SARS-CoV-2 Having already overcome the previous covid infection. “In the past week, the percentage of re-infections out of the total reported cases was 9.5%, which is an increase compared to the previous week (8.4%, data with longer consolidation times than other information).” This is what emerges from the expanded report of the Higher Institute of Health on the progress of COVID-19. Overall, we read that “from August 24, 2021 to June 28, 2022, 587,347 cases of infection were again reported, corresponding to 4.0% of the total number of reported cases.”

The analysis of the risk of infection begins again from December 6, 2021, which is the reference date for the beginning of the spread of infection. Variable Omicron, highlights an increase in the adjusted relative risk of reinfection (values ​​significantly greater than 1) “in people who were notified of the first diagnosis of Covid-19 for more than 210 days, compared to those who received the first diagnosis between the previous 90 and 210 days” Remember the number. Moreover, the risk of reinfection is higher “in people who have not been vaccinated or have been vaccinated with at least one dose for more than 120 days, compared with those who have been vaccinated with at least one dose within 120 days; in females compared to males; in younger age groups (12-49 years), compared to first-diagnosed people aged 50-59; in health workers compared to the rest of the population.”

For No vax, the risk of death is 7 times higher

People who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19, compared to those who have been vaccinated, have a 7-fold greater risk of death and up to 4-times of hospitalization in intensive care. This is what emerges from the expanded report of the Higher Institute of Health on the trend of COVID-19 in Italy. “The age-standardized mortality rate, for the population of 12 years or older, from 6 May to 5 June 2022 – we read – for the non-vaccinated (13 deaths per 100,000 population) is about 4 times higher compared to the full course of vaccination. Duration 120 days or less (3 deaths/100,000) and about 7 times higher than additional/supportive vaccination (2 deaths/100,000).”

As for hospitalizations, “the age-standardized hospitalization rate, for the population aged 12 or over, from May 13 to June 12, for the unvaccinated (57 hospitalizations per 100,000 population) is almost twice as high as Full vaccination A course of 120 days or less (23 hospitalizations/100,000) and more than 3 and a half times more vaccination with an additional dose/booster dose (15 hospitalizations/100,000)». In the same period, “Rate Admissions to ICU by age, for the population of 12 years or older, for the unvaccinated (2 ICU admissions per 100,000 population) are approximately twice higher than those vaccinated with a full course of 120 days or less (1 hospitalization/100). ,000) and about 4 times higher than those vaccinated with an additional/booster dose (1 hospital stay/100,000).”
