No, the case of the death of Giuseppe De Donno is not closed yet. First of all because today, Friday 30 July, an autopsy will be carried out on the body of the pulmonologist, found lifeless in his home in Eremo di Curtatone last Tuesday morning, an act ordered by the prosecutor and necessary in the context of the investigation.
De Donno, it is recalled, was the father of the disputed hyperimmune plasma therapy to treat coronavirus patients (he had recently returned to being a general practitioner in Porto Mantovano). Also due to the timing of the autopsy, the doctor’s funeral will not be possible until next week.
But the De Donno case is not closed because, we learn from the prosecutor’s office, it is also investigated for instigation to suicide. The hypothesis cannot be excluded, also in light of the fact that the pulmonologist did not leave any kind of explanation, such as a last note, to explain the reasons for his extreme gesture.
Behind De Donno’s suicide, there could be a case of acute depression, perhaps also due to the stop imposed on his hyperimmune plasma research, which it was also heavily sponsored by Hyenas di Italia 1. It was in fact learned that the pulmonologist had voluntarily hospitalized in a clinic, precisely to overcome the black phase, the demon of depression that had gripped him for months, as confirmed by some testimonies of his colleagues.
