Covid infectious disease specialists: ‘Hospitals will increase in Italy’

Covid infections are increasing in Italy, but “it is a difficult time to make predictions. We can go back to when it happened in Portugal, which experienced this wave two months ago. I think, however, that we are still in the stage of the epidemiological ascent and this increase in cases will continue to lead to an increase In hospitals that always travel with a delay of 10 to 15 days. Peak? All of July we will have large numbers” of cases. Claudio Mastroianni, President of the Italian Society of Infectious and Tropical Diseases (SIMIT) and Professor of Infectious Diseases at Sapienza University in Rome, highlights this in the Adnkronos Salute, to assess the epidemiological situation.

And the infectious disease specialist adds: “Severe Covid pneumonia does not reach the hospital, but if the patient has other diseases, there are some other risks.”
