Professor Matteo Bassetti, director of the infectious diseases department at the San Martino Hospital in Genoa, today tells the ‘Corriere della Sera’ the attack last Monday evening, a verbal and almost physical aggression, very violent, with threats of death to him and his family. “I had just returned with my wife and children from a short vacation in Sardinia. I went out to buy some small cigars that I smoke from time to time: there is a tobacconist, near the house, open late. of me a look of a person who recognizes me. He began to cover me with insults (let’s skip the swear words) and yelled at me ‘You get the vaccines’. And again: ‘I’ll kill you’ “, he explains. “I did not go near the house and I went straight, as if I had not heard, while he shouted at me: ‘Turn s …’. So the Digos had instructed me: I am under surveillance and I immediately called one of their patrols. I have the direct number, without going through 112. In three minutes they arrived – he explains -. The attacker ran away when he heard the sirens, but was immediately reached by the agents. I learned that he is a 46-year-old man who was taken to the Police Headquarters. He was denounced directly by the police, and also by me: it is the seventieth complaint that my lawyer presents “. “We are talking about no vax, but there are also no-green passes – says Bassetti – a mistake would be to consider them folkloristic and personal: within them there is a bit of everything. Many of these people are real criminals, managed it is not clear by whom: the political color has nothing to do with it, in my opinion. The slogan is ‘go against’ and the Covid vaccine is the main objective they have chosen. The judiciary and the state, however, must intervene – he concludes – they are dangerous phenomena (in the meantime two journalists have also been attacked, ed), even if promoted, in the end by four cats. Unfortunately, they have a lot of visibility “.
