The number of doctors who died in Italy during the Covid-19 pandemic rose to 333.  Maria Teresa D’Istria , general practitioner, is the latest victim remembered in the list of fallen soldiers updated by Fnomceo, National Federation of Medical Surgeons and Dentists, which will remain listed in mourning in their memory, in a sad list that is gradually updated.

“The dead make no noise, they no longer make noise as grass grows, wrote Ungaretti – comments the president of Fnomceo, Filippo Anelli -. And yet, the names of our friends, our colleagues, put here, in black and white, make a deafening noise. As well as the number of infected health workers, who now make up 10% of the total. We can no longer allow our doctors, our health workers, to be sent to fight the virus with their bare hands. It is an unequal struggle, which hurts us, hurts the citizens, hurts the country ”.
