Why did Giuseppe De Donno, the Mantuan doctor who promoted plasma therapy who committed suicide on Tuesday 27 July, in June left the hospital where he had worked for 27 years to return to being a family doctor? This is a question that many of those who followed the activity of the doctor who had saved dozens of patients in the first wave of covid ask themselves, attracting the attention of the media but also harsh criticism and attacks, so much so that his death raised doubts and on which an investigation was alerted.
“He was struggling with a serious situation of personal difficulty that had nothing to do with his work as a doctor and with his study and experimentation on hyperimmune plasma as a cure for Covid”, explained Raffaele, the general manager of Asst Mantova in the last few hours. Stradoni. “Many things have been said, but one cannot possibly think that it was associated with no-vax”, says a Fanpage recalling that De Donno had been vaccinated in December.
No conspiracy, death would not be linked to hyperimmune plasma testing, explains the director. “What happened is linked to a difficult personal situation. Doctor De Donno had been experiencing a moment of fragility for some time. Fighting the virus in the front row in the hospital had helped him, but for months he had then taken a period of illness from the hospital – says Stradoni – All of us colleagues have tried to be as close to him as possible “.
Following this malaise he had decided to resign and go back to being a family doctor in Porto Mantovano. “With his new position he said he was better. He was an excellent doctor, his skill was known to many in the village so much that he already had a long line of patients after a few days. Now the news of his death has shocked us colleagues too. of the hospital “.
