Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza has given assurances that despite the rebound in cases detected across Europe, there will be no new containment as a result of the coronavirus.
“There will be no new delivery,” said Speranza in an interview published by La Stampa newspaper this Sunday. The minister stressed that the current situation in Italy is very different from that of February and March, when the virus spread uncontrollably.
“I’m optimistic, if cautious. Our healthcare system is much stronger now,” added Speranza. In particular, he pointed out that the number of ICU beds has doubled since March.
The Undersecretary of the Ministry of Health, Sandra Zampa, has confirmed the message in statements to the ‘Corriere della Sera’: “No further restrictions!” “We saw that no country can afford to close everything at once (…). The lack of bans gives citizens more responsibility,” he said.
