“Today the Codogno Covid Area closes, a day that I live with deep emotion”. Thus begins Francesco Tursi, head of the Pneumology service and referent of the yellow Covid area of Codogno, a garrison that was one of the trenches against the Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus in the first red zone of Italy. It is a day to remember, the one in which the last patient who won the disease was discharged. The doctor tells of his emotion in a letter addressed to the general director of Asst in Lodi to thank everyone, after months that have also seen him among the first Covid patients. In the long list of graces that Tursi wanted to put pen to paper, the dedication to his patients stands out: “You have shared with us this very delicate period of your life – writes the white coat – I hope that all of us have been able to be at the the height of your expectations. I can only tell you that we in the Codogno Covid Area did our best. Thank you for the numerous testimonies of affection towards us that have moved and gratified us “. For Tursi “nothing was equal to the face of even a patient whom we had helped to heal, to see life beat in his eyes. Go back to life, as we are all slowly doing on the margins of a moment that will be remembered in the history books” . “They were – continues Tursi – the most intense months of my life and you made them memorable in my heart and in my mind”. The white coat mentions his travel companions one by one. First of all, the nurses “who spent themselves without sparing themselves, even putting their lives at risk for the good of our fellow citizens. In the nights, those that seemed insurmountable for some patients, you were a sort of beacon, a light beside, powerful and sweet. You were the expert staff for the young doctors who reassured them “. Tursi continues with the Oss and the auxiliaries” for the commitment and love they gave to our patients, pampering them and taking care of them as I never had seen in my life “. Battiato’s “masterpiece”, the song ‘La Cura’, “I swear, it seems to speak of you”, says the chief physician. His thanks also to the “cleaners, because our area and the patients’ rooms have always been shining and the kindness they have shown towards everyone has been commendable”. And the physiotherapists, because “coming up from the Covid tunnel is it was possible “for the patients” thanks to your skilled hands and your profound knowledge of the body, muscles, bones “. And again Tursi says thanks to those he defines as his “heroes of Covid, the young doctors” who “have been tireless and indomitable, have spent themselves busily growing exponentially”. In his words, a concentration of the difficulties experienced day by day in the long phase of the Covid emergency, between fatigue and satisfaction. An answer was given “to a hurricane”, assures Tursi, “with tenacity and without ever giving up. The whole territory will be grateful to you – he concludes, addressing the team he worked with – Really thank you”.
