The Genoese infectious disease specialist may not decline the invitation to lead the ministry. “For what we have seen in the last three years it would be important for a technician to have a word”
“What is certain is that I am not running for elections, I will continue to do my job”, so Matteo Bassetti to the microphones of Primocanale comments on his contribution to the policies of next September 25th.
If an application is not foreseen, the professor of infectious diseases, however, does not deny a possible commitment as Minister of Health: “We have had three health ministers in history (Girolamo Sirchia, Umberto Veronesi, Elio Guzzanti) at different times and with different governments who did an excellent job and they were three doctors. The Ministry of Health, a bit like it happens for the economy, could benefit from a technician. For what we have seen in the last three years, it would be important for a technician to have a say “.
However, Bassetti is worried about the issues that have already emerged from the electoral campaign of all the parties: “Unfortunately in the electoral programs the pandemic and what we want to do has completely disappeared. Do the parties prefer to avoid talking about it? It is not by not talking about it that is resolved “.
