The agreement was signed today between the Puglia Region and the unions of free choice pediatricians for the management of Covid cases in Puglia in the pediatric age group: “We have reached – explains the director of the regional health promotion department, Vito Montanaro – an agreement with the Apulian pediatricians in line with the one already signed with the general practitioners. From this moment, the Apulians will be able to contact their pediatrician to find out the path of assistance and treatment in the event of a covid infection in the pediatric range. Pediatricians will be able to continue to administer antigen tests within their studies to diagnose positivity in suspected cases “.
For the pediatric age group, starting from today, 12 January 2022, asymptomatic subjects who test positive for a third generation antigen test or a molecular test provided by authorized structures, for the purposes of the isolation measure, make an appointment for the tampon and the provision of healing, also for the purposes of the green pass, will be managed directly by the local health authorities with automated methods and procedures generated by the Iris platform. Symptomatic and positive subjects, on the other hand, will be taken in charge by the pediatrician of free choice who, in addition to the normal activities already planned, will generate the request for a control pad for the purpose of the healing measure.
