Burioni svergogna il governo: “Non contano nemmeno gli infetti”


In questo preciso momento il conteggio dei casi di nuovo coronavirus nel sito dell'Istituto Superiore di Sanità è fermo…

Posted by Medical Facts di Roberto Burioni on Saturday, February 22, 2020

la denuncia arriva su Facebook dal virologo Roberto Burioni: “In questo preciso momento – fa sapere – il conteggio dei casi di nuovo coronavirus nel sito dell’Istituto Superiore di Sanità è fermo a quattro. Non si affronta così un’epidemia”.

“Sembra che il sito sia chiuso per il weekend, speriamo che i laboratori siano aperti. In ogni caso non è questo il modo di confrontarsi con un’emergenza. La paura si combatte con una informazione puntuale”. Proprio così visto e considerato che i numeri crescono di minuto in minuto e, in una democrazia come la nostra, l’informazione deve essere corretta.

Il conto lo teniamo noi:

  • 2 new cases in Australia, passengers of the Diamond Princess cruise ship.
  • 1 new case in Italy: a 38 year-ol

    I casi confermati sono al momento 17:

    Walter Ricciardi (OMS): “La situazione è brutta, si estenderà in altre regioni, serviva la quarantena ma il governo non ci ha ascoltati”

    “Avete sbagliato con vostre declamazioni tranquillizzanti, avete preso questa cosa alla carlona. La quarantena per coloro che arrivano dalla Cina è l’unico modo di bloccare l’arrivo del #CoronaVirus”

    Queste sono accuse gravissime. Hanno messo a rischio la salute pubblica. Dimissioni e a processo.

    Intanto, in Lombardia salgono a quindici i casi positivi al nuovo coronavirus. Per ora sono tutti circoscritti alla provincia di Lodi, e probabilmente sono tutti legati al 38enne che è ricoverato in condizioni serie. Manca ancora il “paziente zero”, che in un primo momento sembrava scontato che fosse il collega tornato dalla Cina con il quale il 38enne era stato a cena alla fine di gennaio. L’uomo è però risultato negativo ai test, ma potrebbe comunque essere un portatore sano asintomatico. In attesa che vengano ricostruiti i collegamenti del quindicesimo contagiato lombardo, il totale in Italia è salito a 20, ritoccando ulteriormente il primato di infetti in Europa (superata la Germania, che si è fermata a quota 16).

    Coronavirus, c’è il primo morto italiano a Padova: governo responsabile
