Arm wrestling in the hospital

Death lurks… …and in all affected countries, the medical profession is on the front line fighting the virus. Its speed of propagation is such that hospitals are overcrowded, not to say exsanguinated: before Europe, China experienced a flood of patients to be cared for in surreal conditions. Public hospitals, often weakened by budget cuts, must face this unprecedented situation with, too often, a shortage of basic equipment (masks, artificial respirators, screening tests…) and increasingly contaminated caregivers themselves.
As of 26 March, there were more than 7,000 deaths in Italy, and more than 4,000 in Spain… The applause at the windows every evening at 8pm is certainly encouraging, but compliance with the containment rules remains the safest way to stop the disaster. We can never say it often enough: stay home to save lives!
