“In Italy we have seen a tsunami and we have faced it. Today the numbers tell us that, at least for this epidemic phase, we are at the end of the line because yesterday’s data, sick and dead, seems to me to be encouraging. To say that the worst is yet to come I do not agree, and the WHO alarm also refers to the situation globally. ” Matteo Bassetti, director of the infectious diseases clinic of the Policlinico San Martino in Genoa, said this to Adnkronos Salute, commenting on the words of Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, WHO director general, according to which “the worst is yet to come”.
“It is clear that there are countries where the numbers will grow, Brazil and the USA, and where the efforts we have made in Italy with the lockdown, the spacing measures, the strengthening of local medicine and the implementation of intensive care places ”, adds the infectious disease specialist.
