It is the reflection posted on Facebook gives Laura Di Siena, 42enne di Pavia, which has not been seen due to Covid 19 patients postpone his surgery for a rare tumor. “How is it possible? Why do I have to pay for the indifference others? I’m a cancer patient, I have to face a vital intervention for me but hospitals are full of unvaccinated Covid patients. What could an experimental vaccine do worse than cancer? ”. “You realize that cancer kills and its incidence increases? – continues the post- Do not get a vaccine, but escape from cancer is not possible.
