A CT scanner for the field hospital in Bergamo that will help monitor patients and improve the diagnosis of infections from the new coronavirus. The Unipol Group, which already allocated €20m to support Italy during the healthcare emergency, made a gesture to support the people of Bergamo in association with the humanitarian organisation Cesvi, with a donation of €1m which meant that it could purchase a portable CT scanner for the field hospital set up by the Alpine troops in Bergamo. This machine can pick up signs of the disease in lungs at an early stage, assess the extension and progress of the coronavirus infection, and also confirm the complete recovery of patients who have been infected with Covid-19.
The CT scanner was delivered this morning with Sebastiano Favero, President of the National Alpine troops Association in attendance along with the Mayor of Bergamo, Giorgio Gori, the President of Cesvi, Gloria Zavatta, and the Head of Institutional Relations at the Unipol Group Stefano Genovese.
