As daily coronavirus case numbers drop in Italy, some doctors have suggested that the virus is weakening and has all but disappeared in the country.
Alberto Zangrillo, who heads Milan’s San Raffaele Hospital, told Italian TV on Sunday that “in reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy,” Reuters reported. “The swabs that were performed over the last 10 days showed a viral load in quantitative terms that was absolutely infinitesimal compared to the ones carried out a month or two months ago,” Zangrillo said.
But public-health authorities in Italy and at the World Health Organization have questioned the statements. #caironl
