First and foremost, they are sent to regions with the most severe situation – Lombardy, Piedmont and Emilia-Romagna.
“aboard these aircraft have masks and a number of medical materials which are fundamental to the actions of our doctors and nurses. I thank the Russian Federation, of President Putin and the government for all the support they have given. Italy is not alone, there are many countries who help us.

I hope that by the end of March will be able to reduce the time from the moment a sample is taken to obtain the result to 45 minutes. And create materials for self-sampling of material at home. The procedure is unpleasant.
“Stick for taking a smear stick deep enough into the nose that causes a fair amount of discomfort. It seemed to me as if pinched on the inside. This is probably a good opportunity to say again to any American if you have no symptoms, you don’t need to test” — said Vice-President Mike Pence.
But if testing is more you can do, then no security measures against coronavirus – no. Authorities continue by all means to inform the population of the Earth two simple rules – to remain at home opportunities and process hands.
