The Bergamo hospital is at the heart of the drama unfolding in Italy. There are 800 beds in intensive therapy, all occupied and the patients are more numerous every day with the same diagnosis. “I have breathing difficulties, they hospitalized me. I have double pneumonia and coronavirus “, confides a patient. The hospital service is overwhelmed, and forced to make choices between patients.
The elderly and frail died first. The virus is now attacking younger targets. “These are patients who fell ill six or seven days ago, being younger they resisted better, but after that it gets complicated and they come to us in even more critical conditions “says Dr. Luca Lorini. The hospital in Bergamo is modern and well-equipped in a city of 120,000 inhabitants. Containment measures started 10 days ago, which is too late.
