The governor of the Italian region of Lombardy, severely affected by the coronavirus, fears that the health system in the area will collapse.
According to Attilio Fontana, the moment is approaching when the sick can no longer receive treatment.
“Unfortunately, the numbers of infections don’t go down, they remain high,” he says. “Soon, we will no longer be able to treat the sick.”
In Lombardy, almost half of the more than 30,000 infections in Italy have been diagnosed.
Milan and the severely hit Bergamo are in the region. In the past 24 hours, 319 people died, bringing the total number of deaths in the region to 1959.
