“When I am in the mountains on a path in the woods and I see a person in the distance with a mask I think he is developing a psychiatric pathology”. Professor Alberto Zangrillo, head of resuscitation at the San Raffaele hospital, does not use half measures when it comes to the use of masks. “Living with the virus means behaving with intelligence and having respect and responsibility towards others. Young people must behave with intelligence, but as we speak there are thousands of terrified, stunned elderly people, they have not left the house for 15 months. If I see a person from alone on the Tiber at 6 in the morning, I feel like saying: ‘poor thing’ “, she says to L’aria che tira. “We put on the mask when we enter the pharmacy, the bank, at work. Otherwise, no. It’s the difference between being a people of Boeotians and a people of responsible people. I expect much more from my fellow citizens “. In closing, a dig at Lilli Gruber. Zangrillo rejects political labels and collocations: “I know that if I had to go to Doctor Gruber, I would have a firing squad in front of me. I am neither right nor left … If I say that I go away from television I can stay away for 6 -7 months, I take care of the sick who also arrive from the Sacco hospital who otherwise would have died “, he says, referring to the hospital where Professor Massimo Galli works. “Being a resuscitator means treating organ dysfunctions, treating the most seriously ill who otherwise die. To be a resuscitator you have to be very human”.
