“We are giving input to the general managers of the ASL” to “try to restore” normal activity and “try to merge the visits a little to clear the waiting lists”: said the Councilor for Health of the Puglia Region , Pierluigi Lopalco. “The reactivation of all ordinary activities – he assured – will be as fast as possible and certainly the restoration of pre-Covid activities will be guaranteed”.
“We – added Lopalco – immediately converted eight hospitals that were ready for the restart, but in the same act we gave a mandate to all general managers to speed up the conversion of all hospitals that today host Covid patients as the Covid departments become empty “.
