Abstract

Up to June 15th 2021, the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus type 2 (SARS- CoV-2) pandemic caused 4,228,434 cases and 126,099 deaths in Italy [1]. At the beginning of the second pandemic wave, starting from October 2020 onwards, the Italian government tailored containment measures at regional level in accordance with cases dynamic. The ongoing regional surveillance systems focused mainly on contact tracing and elderly in long-term care facilities [2,3]. An ad hoc active surveillance covering not routinely surveyed fragile key-populations in the community in a city of 250,000 inhabitants in the North East of Italy was established with the goal of improving public health responses.
