“We have also shown in the context of this summer blaze of Covid an absolute immaturity as an Italian system, the criticism does not go so much to the Ministry of Health as to my colleagues who are making an exaggerated alarmism typical of those who are not on the field and have not faced the infection but it is only theory “. Matteo Bassetti, director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino Polyclinic in Genoa, highlights this at Adnkronos Health, taking stock of the epidemiological situation that sees an increase in the positive and hospitalization curve. Read also “The current situation, I refer to Liguria where I work and a region with many elderly people – analyzes Bassetti – Today we have a very high circulation of the virus and Omicron 5, we are following many positive people at home with antivirals and yes they arrive in hospital many citizens but do not have Covid, they have a positive swab and then other pathologies. Until those who have Covid pneumonia and those who have high altitude, and a positive swab, we will not get out “.” I have been saying this for some time, the bulletins had to be adapted to the situation, – he continues – it is also necessary to give a clean cut to the swabs performed during hospitalization. Then it is necessary to organize the hospitals in a different way, to evaluate who died from Covid and with Covid. Of all the countries that have had a summer blaze of Covid we seem to be worse off. This is because in Italy everyone talks, everyone has their say but they have never seen a patient “.
