Bassetti: “Paxlovid antiviral from family doctor yet another bad thing”

“In my opinion in the end, paradoxically, there will be fewer prescriptions of the antiviral Paxlovid from the family doctor. This is because before the Aifa ok” for prescription and distribution in pharmacies “a team was teamed up in some offices between family doctors and hospitals. Now evidently, knowing that these will be able to prescribe the antivale, this team will fail. Unfortunately, one of the many bad things done in Italy “. Matteo Bassetti, director of the Infectious Diseases Clinic of the San Martino Polyclinic in Genoa, says this to Adnkronos Salute. Read also “We are not prepared for this model – adds Bassetti -, there is a form to fill out quite demanding with a series of information that configures a lot of bureaucracy on the part of the general practitioner. The therapeutic plan needs a lot of information that before we filled in the hospital and today he will have to be a family doctor. I hope that these drugs will be prescribed appropriately. To date they have not been used much because the cases where to use them are very few “.
