Italian Virologist Claims PC Culture Intensified The Effects Of The Corona Virus
The Corona Virus is wreaking havoc in Italy as they have now become the epicenter for this pandemic. An Italian Virologist claims that their country would have handled it better if not for the PC culture. Who would have thought...
"Dr. Giorgio Palù, a professor of virology and microbiology of the University of Padova and the former head of the European and Italian Society for Virology, recently said that concerns over "politics" and being perceived as "racist" delayed Rome's response to the deadly virus that originated in China.
"We should have done more diagnostic tests in Lombardy where there was a big nucleus. There is no sense in trying to go to the supermarket once a week. You have to limit your time out, isolation is the key thing," he said.
Palù also believes that politics delayed the government's reaction, which he decried as "lazy in the beginning," saying there is "too much politics in Italy."
"There was a proposal to isolate people coming from the epicenter, coming from China," he said. "Then it became seen as racist, but they were people coming from the outbreak." That, he said, led to the current devastating situation."
In response to these safety measures, a Florence Mayor initiated a hug a Chinese day to fight it...That definitely backfired.
Alessandro Vergallo, a specialist in anesthesia and intensive care, also weighed in on the Corona Virus in Italy and he had some bad news.
"He warned that any return to normality won't happen for months. "Yesterday we were trying to interpret when the flattening of the curve would happen. Since it's an unknown virus, it's hard to interpret the data. We hope that by March 26, we should see a decrease in numbers," he tells CNN. "I think the fear of the various EU institutions feared the damage to the European economy would be bigger than that of the virus. Now we are all paying, not just in Italy, but also in other European countries. A huge human and economic price is being paid."
