Three more doctors died of coronavirus yesterday, in Bergamo, Foggia, and Naples, the Italian Federation of Medical Professionals said, bringing the total to 36.

The head of an Italian research institute said today that 6,205 health workers had caught the disease – 8.3 percent of Italy’s 74,376 total infections.
‘What we face every day is a real war bulletin. Doctors and their families mourn their dead,’ said Filippo Anelli, president of the doctors’ federation.
The doctors’ federation has warned that the true death toll may be higher because ‘many doctors die suddenly, even if the cause of death is not directly attributable to the virus because the swab is not carried out.’

On top of that, at least one nurse is believed to have killed herself after being infected with coronavirus and fearing she had spread the disease to others.
