Coronavirus, as a single asymptomatic has infected 23 people on board a bus

One person aboard a poorly ventilated bus with internal air recirculation alone infected nearly two dozen other passengers even if they weren’t seated nearby. what a research just published on Jama International Medicine and represents further evidence that the disease is spread by air.

Transmission by air

The health authorities at first rejected the hypothesis that simple breath can transmit infectious micro particles and only recently, after pressure from many experts and the numerous evidence that has accumulated over time, there has been a turnaround by the still skeptical scientific community and the World Health Organization.

The two buses

In the study, the researchers looked at what happened to a group of passengers who remained aboard two buses for 100 minutes round trip to attend an outdoor Buddhist event in Ningbo, a city in eastern China, which lasted two and a half hours. The trip took place on January 19, when the coronavirus had just emerged and there was no habit of wearing masks. Scholars have identified patient zero, according to a Chinese newspaper it was a 64-year-old woman who had been in contact with other people in Wuhan, the city from where the infection started at the end of last December. The scientists mapped where the other passengers were seated and were subsequently swabbed: 23 out of 68 on board the same bus tested positive. None of the 60 passengers on board the other bus tested positive. The researchers found that the air conditioning simply recirculated the air inside the bus, which probably contributed. About 300 people attended the ceremony but only 128 traveled by bus. Among the participants, 7 others became infected, despite not having traveled by bus.

Contagion far from patient zero

What is noteworthy is that people in the front and back of the bus were infected, even seven rows away from patient zero, therefore well outside the two meters considered by the health authorities to be the safe distance to avoid contagion. Furthermore, according to Jama, the sick passenger did not yet show symptoms of the disease such as cough or fever when the group has traveled. A Chinese version of the study, however, claims that the woman exhibited the first symptoms the evening before departure, the evening the day before departure, after having dined with Hubei guests. This study adds new epidemiological evidence that the virus is transmitted through the air since people far away from patient zero have also been infected. New York Times Linsey Marr, professor of civil and environmental engineering at Virginia Tech, one of the world’s leading aerosol experts. The researchers concluded that Sars-Cov-2 is a highly transmissible pathogen indoors with internal air recirculation alone. The infection was likely caused by a combination of factors: a long journey, a cramped environment, a crowded bus, and an individual who was likely extremely contagious because he was in the early stages of the infection.

– Dear court, I still remember almost nothing from that day. I know that I took a taxi.

Efremov said that he went to court for the truth, and met witnesses who change their testimony, and ridicule of his expert.

– I went to court for the truth, so that they explained to me where I really was. What did I see? Witnesses who hearsay said that I was driving, who changed their testimony, like Don Juan women. Medical examiner with toys – Barbie dolls and cars. She said that the car with the victim was turned clockwise, so Zakharov could not get worse. Although the video shows that the car was turned against. In addition, every 10 minutes from my phone there was a call to a certain number (read out the number), – said Efremov.

He also stated that the examination of the electronics in his car had not been carried out, and that Efremov himself could have been in the passenger seat, since an airbag had fired on him upon impact.

– The testimony of expert Fialko was ridiculed. Although not checking the electronics in an American car is at least strange. The passenger’s airbag went off, perhaps I was there, – noted Efremov.

The actor also said that he continues to search for a new lawyer.

– Over the weekend, my wife received a lot of calls and messages from lawyers, 2/3 of them were useless. Tomorrow we will decide who will represent my interests. Why not spend this day and a half on a biological examination?

The court sessions were postponed until August 31, so that Efremov could find a new lawyer.

Coronavirus: you arrive from Greece, Spain, Croatia and Malta, here’s what to do – Chronicle

Those who enter Italy from Croatia, Greece, Malta or Spain and who have been there within the previous 14 days (not only for a stay but also for a simple transit), must take the swab test to ascertain whether or not the infection from SARS-CoV-2. This is what is contained in the Ordinance signed by the Roberto Speranza Ministry of Health for the containment measures of Covid-19. Passengers are obliged to present to the carrier (or in any case to anyone appointed to check the certificates), 72 hours before entering Italy, the results of a test (molecular or antigenic), carried out through a swab and which must be negative. Furthermore, in case there is the possibility, there is an obligation to carry out the test upon arrival at the airport, in the port or in the border area, or, within 48 hours of arrival in Italy, at the local health company of reference. Pending the test, it is necessary to undergo fiduciary isolation. “Nobody has precise numbers and data, in Italy there is no precise monitoring either with respect to arrivals or departures, not even Enit has updated numbers until the end of the year. We can make a very rough estimate and say that in this time about ten thousand Italians sono abroad for tourism. They are mainly divided between Spain and Greece and then in Croatia and Malta (smaller and reachable by plane) “, said Ivana Jelinic, president of Fiavet, Italian Federation of Travel and Tourism Business Associations, asked by ANSA.

All those who arrive from Croatia, Greece, Malta or Spain are obliged to communicate, once in Italy, their arrival to the Prevention Department of the competent health authority for the area. In the event that symptoms attributable to Covid-19 arise, there is an obligation to report it to the health companies through the dedicated telephone numbers and to undergo isolation, according to the determinations.

The Regions therefore get ready and the ordinances of the governors arrive. Mandatory pads for those returning from the goals identified by Speranza for the Calabrians from today until 7 September. The order of Iole Santelli also provides “the obligation to use masks or other suitable protections, in all closed and open places accessible to the public, in the circumstances in which the interpersonal distance cannot be respected, without prejudice in any case to the prohibition of gathering “.

Buffers are also mandatory in Sardinia, Liguria, Campania, Piedmont and Veneto where the governor Zaia announced: ‘We are preparing to activate at points of arrival such as ports and airports with rapid swabs’.

In Lazio “From today all the drive-ins are active to perform tests on those returning from Greece, Croatia, Spain and Malta. Those returning to Lazio must do two things: notify the toll-free number 800.118.800 or through the ‘Lazio Doctor Covid app ‘and go to the drive-in with a health card and travel document. If it goes with a doctor’s prescription, it speeds up tracking operations. The drive-ins are open every day from 9 to 18 except on Sundays (Il drive del San Giovanni it is also open on Sundays). For any information contact the toll-free number 800.118.800 or report your return through the ‘lazio doctor covid’ app “. This was announced by the COVID-19 Crisis Unit of the Region.

For those who fall into Emilia Romagna from Croatia, Greece, Malta and Spain there will be no quarantine in the waiting time for the swab e not even for waiting for the outcome. Confirmed the obligation to inform the health authorities of the arrival from those countries to undergo the test. This is clarified by Raffaele Donini, regional councilor for Health, regarding the ordinance of the Minister of Health issued yesterday which regulates entry into Italy by those who have stayed in countries where the index of infections from Covid-19 is rising. “On the subject of returns from Croatia, Greece, Malta and Spain, this morning we took stock with the Ministry of Health on some aspects of the ordinance issued yesterday – explains Donini in a note – Naturally we share the system of the provision, which we had discussed, and in some respects anticipated, together yesterday. We agreed with the Ministry that, as far as we are concerned, the tests that will be carried out upon arrival from the countries mentioned in the minister’s ordinance are to be considered as an epidemiological investigation. , the person’s fiduciary isolation is not foreseen, neither as regards the waiting period to be subjected to a swab, nor as regards the waiting to receive the test result. The obligation to inform the health authorities of the I arrive from those countries, to be then subjected to the test. I still appeal to the observance of all the prevention rules – underlines the commissioner – from distancing to the use of mas kerine, frequent hand washing “.

The president of Veneto, Luca Zaia, signs a new ordinance valid until 6 September to “secure the territory” and which, compared to the Government Dpcm, “implies behaviors which must necessarily be observed – he points out – who comes from some countries considered to be ‘at risk or belonging to specific categories’ “. Among the individuals identified, who are asked for the Covid test, there are workers in retirement homes and facilities for the non self-sufficient. Upon returning to Veneto from abroad, they will have to call their general practitioner or health facilities and will have to undergo a swab, which will be free: those who evade will face a fine of one thousand euros. Equal obligation for health workers in hospitals and hospices, for carers or for those who provide home care for the elderly and disabled. The other categories directly involved in the ordinance also include seasonal workers in the agricultural sector and those who make a business trip abroad. Particular attention is paid to those returning from quarantine countries. The ordinance makes explicit reference, Zaia says, to those coming from Romania and Bulgaria and returning to Veneto by coach or tourist bus. For those arriving in the Region from countries where there is no quarantine, such as Croatia, Malta, Greece and Malta, it is mandatory to carry out the Covid test. “Target groups, which are of particular epidemiological interest” such as Pakistanis were also taken into consideration.
