A doctor in the Campania region (southern Italy) is under investigation for having treated some 3,000 patients with coronavirus at home, without following the rules of the Ministry of Health, while his fellow citizens consider him a hero, local media reported today.

Dr. Gerardo Torre, who works in the town of Pagani, said he was shocked to face the accusation that he had not followed the Health Ministry’s protocols on treatments to be administered for patients with coronavirus.

“When the Medical College of Salerno gave me the notice, I thought they wanted to give me an award, a medal for my work during the pandemic. And instead I will have to undergo a disciplinary trial. I may even be suspended,” explained Torre in declarations to the newspaper “Corriere del Mezzogiorno.”

He explained that he has visited “3,000 patients at home,” risking his health, while other colleagues have attended to the sick by telephone, “without ever personally evaluating the patient,” and this has led to their deaths, he added.

The doctor will have to appear before the Court of Salerno on January 28 to defend himself against the accusations, and a demonstration in support of his work has already been called for outside the city, in which various health workers will participate.

Also the mayor of Pagani, Lello De Prisco, showed his support on social networks and claimed to have been cured by the doctor, whom he described as “brave.”

“If today I can write, I owe it to him. Thanks to all the doctors who provide home care,” he wrote.
