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.
It is for this reason that in times like today it is essential to behave with a great civic sense. It is not acceptable to yield to approximate judgments, discriminations nor to lose sight of our core values. Yet, damages caused by bad management and behaviors can lead to long-lasting effects on people life and economy which seems to be underestimated.
Esaote, as a leading provider of medical imaging technology, is committed to deliver patient care even during emergency situations. Our employees are contributing with usual services to support the medical community during this difficult time, as experienced by our friends and colleagues in Esaote China first and by the Italian team in these days. Where possible, all other services have been re-arranged through smart working (adopted in the company since almost eighteen months), limitations of face-to-face meetings, prioritized activities and prevention measures to safeguard our employees’ health and to limit the diffusion of the virus.
We trust rational approach will prevail on emotional reaction as the best answer to help reaching out a quick solution and we are close to all health professionals who are working hard to overcome this emergency.
