Dr. Luigi recounts the harrowing experience of living in Milan and being a healthcare provider amid the continually rising number of deaths. He shares the impact of Covid19 on his hospital's clinical practice, the restrictive measures to curb the spread of the virus, and the temporary hold on elective orthopedic surgery, total joint arthroplasty, and other operations. Dr. Luigi also relays the massive need for testing and extraordinary communication levels on the various medical teams.
