Tuberculosis is an infectious disease. In Italy there are nearly 6000 people who are infected. At least 1000 in Lombardy. About 400 just in the city of Milan.
After the smog that kills, even the bacillus that infects. From the moral capital to the deadly capital. What does it depend on? On the rubbish? On the lack of hygiene practised by the people of Lombardy? By immigration?
It’s unpopular, I know, but someone has to say it. Those who arrive in Italy from a country that’s at risk, where illnesses like TB are widespread, must be examined and if they are found positive, given treatment. Instead of the CPT, a medical check up and treatment. What’s the point in being vaccinated against malaria and yellow fever to go abroad if you are breathing in TB on the metro?
I’ve got a question for the health authorities. The companies, the schools, the public administration finding they have cases of TB, do they have to communicate this? Or do they have to stay silent to protect privacy and help the bacillus? Which comes first privacy or contagion?
Certainly, this silence is strange. With 6000 cases of TB we should ask the WHO for help. Meanwhile I suggest that Livia Turco reopens the sanatoriums. The cool ones high up in the mountains. And at the frontiers I would like our ministers to take turns giving a welcoming French kiss to the new arrivals.
