- Coronavirus, the point on contagions in Italy
ShareFebruary 25, 2020 "We should talk to people in a less catastrophic and more calmly. Panic is worse than the disease. The stock market burned about forty billion euros yesterday. It's all stopped, all paralyzed, for a virus that is little more than a flu virus. " This was stated by Vincenzo D'Anna, president of the national order of biologists, guest on the microphones of the radio program 'I Lunatici' of Radio 2.
"Let's start calling things by your own name. Leave China alone. Leave the longings to put thousands and thousands of people in quarantine, only those for whom there is a well-founded suspicion of contagion must be quarantined. But it's always about contagion of an influenza virus. A virus that has a mortality that is even lower than an influenza virus. "
"Coronavirus is not more serious or more deadly than a flu. Our own deaths, and always sorry when a person dies, were octogenarians, or people already ill, with cancer or with chronic cardio-respiratory diseases. He could have killed them even a flu virus. That's the truth. I expect scientists to start talking. Many are afraid of being attacked, of being accused of being superficial, because bad news is more and more welcome than good news, "continued the president of the national order of biologists who concluded: "I hope and hope that this frenzy will end, that people will begin to realize that contracting the Coronavirus is like contracting an influenza virus. In Europe there are not many infected because many nations are the virus they are not looking for him. "
