New specialized COVID-19 sections have been built in the main Milanese hospitals, with the dual role of allowing the regular functioning of the hospitals on one hand, and treating COVID-19 patients in ad hoc centres on the other.
Thus, while thanks to the enforced prevention measures it is highly improbable that the disease will spread again to an extent similar to that of the initial wave, Milano is equipped with gold-standard medical facilities and can rely upon previous experience in disease containment and treatment.
This makes Milano one of the safest places to study and live at present time.
