Still positive for Covid-19, but asymptomatic
Antonio Cassano was discharged from the San Martino polyclinic in Genoa where he had been hospitalized a few days ago for treatment resulting from the positive state of Covid-19.
In a statement, the hospital's health management explains that the former national team playmaker is still positive and "almost asymptomatic" and "will continue the treatment at his home, followed as usual after the domiciliations assisted by the team of Professor Matteo Bassetti ".
The former player underwent two doses of the vaccine "so - explained Bassetti - he did not have bilateral interstitial pneumonia", so he was able to go home in a short time.
To decide for hospitalization on January 2 was the oxygenation value, which dropped to 95 (the critical threshold begins at 98). Cassano consulted his attending physician and then called the hospital.
"It arrived - said the general manager of San Martino, Salvatore Giuffrida - through the fast track protocol, signed with general practitioners who report almost certain cases of Covid, avoiding the patient from going to the emergency room, streamlining the path and easing the first aid "." Obviously - added Bassetti - direct taking charge is not a scruple we have for VIPs. Since the fast track has started, we have taken care of over a thousand people ".
Cassano was treated with Remdesivir antiviral.
