The appointment has not yet been made, but the decision has been made. The director of Infectious Diseases of San Martino Matteo Bassetti will be the person in charge and referent of the Region and Alisa for the Covid emergency in Genoa and Tigullio: the Galliera, the Genoese Asl 3, the Chiavarese Asl 4 and the Evangelico, both for hospital and territorial activities. The green light came last week from the Toti council which unanimously voted for the coordination measure for the activities of infectious diseases (prepared with great professionalism by the department director Francesco Quaglia, one of the best in Italy on the administrative-health front) which also provides for the appointment of a department director. That it will be Bassetti, as somehow had already emerged when the head physician and chair director had been excluded from the San Martino nomination waltz and had not been chosen among the department directors: in his place the manager Salvatore Giuffrida had appointed Diego Ferone as head of the department of general medicine. In the coming weeks, as indicated in the deed of the regional council, it will be up to the general manager of Alisa Filippo Ansaldi to sign the appointment resolution together with the staff composed of the medical director-skipper Michele Orlando and the administrative director Daniela Troiano. At that point Bassetti will be able to officially assume command of infectious diseases.
