ROME – The problem of soft quarantine for football teams in the case of a positive player has not yet been overcome, according to Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora .
Interviewed by Bruno Vespa for Porta a Porta, the minister explains that the health situation has improved and that "the FIGC has proposed changes to its protocol".
On the evening of June 16, the Technical Scientific Committee, CTS, "agreed with a scientific point of view, but the 14-day quarantine rule that is contained in a decree law must be changed".
Spadafora then added: “So, either we make an amendment to the dl or in a forthcoming law decree we have to change. Obviously in both cases there are no times to be effective from 20 ".
Spadafora therefore needs a new decree, but the FIGC has already received the favorable opinion of the Ministry of Health and the CTS.
The opinion of the Minister of Sport is not shared in fact by that of Roberto Speranza, Minister of Health, who gave the green light to the introduction of the new model.
According to the provisions, in the event that the teams should report a case of a positive player to the covid, the infected person will be isolated and the championship will continue to be played regularly.
Spadafora: "We need a decree for the soft quarantine"
The problem arises for point 7 of the decree of 16 May, still in force today.
The text in fact provides that the quarantine is applied "to subjects who have had close contacts with confirmed cases of subjects positive to the Covid virus 19."
A passage that implies that the provisions of the soft quarantine are not allowed by the legislation in force. (Sources: AGI, Repubblica , Rai)
