    Immunity Certificates- Italian regions testing for coronavirus immunity

    Testing for immunity will eventually spread to all Italians
    Immunity Certificates-
    And the EU- US-Canada

    PADUA, Italy (Reuters) - Authorities in northern Italy have begun testing health workers for antibodies that may help identify individuals with immunity to the coronavirus as they look for ways to ease the lock down imposed a month ago to contain the epidemic.

    I can announce that the blood tests on health workers have begun,” said regional governor Luca Zaia.

    Following an initial phase of testing on 2,000-3,000 health workers, tests are to be extended to staff and residents in nursing homes and workers in contact with the public.

    Zaia said the aim would ultimately be to allow authorities to issue “licences” for individuals with proven immunity to the virus to return to work.
    For those few I ask how will you react if they are mandatory in order to return to work- kids to school- company requires it and so on???

    After what Italy's been through, I think it's a reasonable way to start the return to normalcy - with the emphasis on, "start".

    Having a policy of issuing "return to work" licenses to those infected seems to run counter to encouraging the obeying of "stay at home" orders. If those who get infected (early) not only got any required medical care before the main rush was on, but get to return to work first as well, it seems to penalize those that took ample care to avoid getting infected at all.

    I can fully understand where you're coming from. But the reality is the virus determines Italy's future, not "fairness".

    Yes, as I mentioned in an other thread.

    I also support it being mandatory. All costs incurred by the Govt-Health plans- no copay's - no restrictions -everyone tested



    taly has been chatting about Immunity Certificates, which clears those infected, have the anti bodies and can resume work

    Questions arise over how long these antibodies are viable??

    C19 is not going away. It has spread to every population. Fauci motioned it could result in seasonal outbreaks.

    Possibly yes, but I see 1 large issue is literally clearing residents block by block.

    Those that had it, cleared, those that did not stay at home. Massive mobilization of staff to test people- I have problems with people performing and doing their own tests- do not trust them to finagle with blond samples tests as mentioned in the link

    Same thing at the States level - those that went into shutdown earlier will have be on shutdown longer thanks to other states that did not bother to shutdown until later... unless they close State borders...

    It also identifies those that are still at risk

    It also prevents a second wave, that 2nd wave would come from others not under lock downs, or recently infected, no symptoms, travelers that are critical workers and not tested

    Add in a substantial number were infected and had mild to moderate symptoms and have yet to be tested and are unaware they may have immunity as they have the anti bodies.

    A good thing that C19 has NOT rapidly evolved.

    Are you assuming that your state will issue such "return to work" licenses as a reward for having survived COVID-19 infection? That would seem to be political suicide for those supporting such measures.

    You guys are so sensible. I miss hanging with my Canuck relatives. It's been too long since I've seen them.
