They lost their lives when the pandemic did not spare anyone. Regardless of whether they are supporters who win or lose, this is what WHO recommends not to do.
Luca Lorini, head of the Intensive Care Department at Pope John XXIII Hospital in Bergamo, said his department currently has 88 epidemic patients, not counting those infected who are being treated in other departments. Lorini told AP on March 25 he was sure that more than 40,000 people hugging and kissing at a distance of a few centimeters to 5 times during the match has caused the infection to spread at a tremendous rate. “When everything is stable, we will make a statistical survey. to know how many of the 40,000 spectators in this match are infected, ” he stressed.
