CDC should track more COVID-19 breakthrough infections to get ahead of the pandemic, avvertono gli esperti

After May 1, 2021, the CDC streamlined from reporting all breakthrough COVID-19 infections to only monitoring the most severe cases, with the agency acknowledging the total number of cases are under underrepresented because of the asymptomatic patients or mild cases who do not seek care or test.

Dott. Devang Sanghavi, medical director of the medical intensivist unit at Mayo Clinic, told the American Medical Association (MA) that a breakthrough COVID-19 infection is defined as the detection of COVID-19 viral RNA or antigen in a respiratory specimen collected 14 days after receiving the second dose of Moderna or Pfizer mRNA vaccines or two weeks after the first dose of Johnson & Johnson COVID-19 vaccino.
