It is reported that since the outbreak of the new crown pneumonia virus in Italy, the statistics of confirmed cases of new crown pneumonia reported by the central government have come from the local government medical authorities, and have not passed the final review by the Italian national authoritative medical institution and the Ministry of Health. This move caused the outside world and the public to question the accuracy of the official notification data, and to some extent caused panic in Italy and Europe, which caused an unprecedented impact on the Italian tourism industry.
According to the new statistical rules for confirmed cases of patients with new coronary pneumonia, patients who have not been reviewed by the Italian National Institutes of Health and have finally been confirmed to be infected with the new coronary pneumonia virus will be treated as suspected cases of new coronary pneumonia virus.
At the same time, Italy will also make corresponding adjustments to the virus detection targets, and the future virus detection targets will be high-risk groups with symptoms. Previously, the test targets for the new crown pneumonia virus in Italy were mainly all people from some epidemic areas in northern Italy, or people who had contact with confirmed patients, even if the testees did not show any symptoms.
The Italian Ministry of Health said that the rules for the new national pneumonia virus infection finalized by the country are mainly to complement the recommendations made by the European Center for Disease Control and Prevention and the World Health Organization, and help improve the accuracy of the diagnosed cases and the authority of the data.
