There would also be the Milanese virologist Massimo Galli, former head of the infectious diseases department at the Sacco Hospital in Milan, among the suspects of the Milan prosecutor’s office as part of an investigation by the Nas dei Carabinieri on alleged rigged competitions at the University of Studies from Milan.

Pavia, Turin, Rome and Palermo. The virologist would be investigated for disturbed freedom of enchantments and false ideology together with professors from other universities.
The investigation into the alleged competitions operated at the State of Milan

The irregularities concern several episodes of conditioning of the public hiring of ordinary and associated teachers but also of hospital assistants and managers.
