RCC-Italian Partnership: Italian Government has generously shared their operating instructions for the treatment of COVID-19 patients, which were translated and distributed by the RCC to Governments in the Western Balkans, to be further shared with their medical institutions
Having in mind the current situation in fight against COVID-19 outbreak in the Western Balkan economies and the country’s extensive experience in treatment of the infected patients, Italian Government contributed to the region’s fight against spread of the virus by generously sharing their operating instructions for the treatment of COVID-19 patients. The Regional Cooperation Council (RCC), upon kind request of the Italian Embassy to Bosnia and Herzegovina, has ensured translation of the protocols to languages of the Western Balkan economies and distributed them to the Governments across the region to be further shared with their respective medical institutions. The operating instructions aim to provide basic information to all healthcare professionals who are or will be involved in the treatment of people infected with the Covid-19 virus.
Italy is one of the nations worst hit by the global coronavirus pandemic, but medical staff and the Government are giving their best to overcome the situation and help others in the fight against the corona virus. These operating instructions are result of collaborative work of infectious disease specialists, pulmonologists, internists, intensivists, emergency specialists, hygienists, and other medical experts who spent the first 15 days of the COVID-19 epidemic together at Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital in Bergamo.
