Facing epidemics

In these days we are facing two epidemic events. The first one is the new coronavirus that is putting many countries in the world in great difficulty. It is a very widespread phenomenon, the origin and evolution of which are still under study and it is precisely the lack of reliable scientific data that makes it difficult to managing critical issues.

The second one is about obsession and fear: because, unfortunately, in addition to possible consequences on the health of citizens that the virus may cause, the lack of knowledge and misinformation coming from wrong sources, generates states of collective psychosis.
