Italy defeated COVID-19? A wrong viral rumor.

Italy defeated COVID-19 and COVID-19 is bacteria not virous is viral on the net particularly on Facebook.

A viral message in Hindi claims that “Italy has defeated coronavirus”. It says that the country performed autopsies on patients who died of COVID and found they had died of “5G electromagnetic radiation”. The wrong message is under circulation when the country is facing the tough time due the COVID-19 disease and it is extremely dangerous for a person with low immune capacity.

However, it is true that there is several suspicion and rumor related to disease are present in the society and in many places, people found the unethical conduct of the doctor that increase the suspicion and finally support to spread these types of rumor. These types of rumor were also present in the last year.

The rumor claims the followings

Italy defeated COVID-19?
  1. COVID-19 is a bacterium, not a virus.
  2. There is a ‘World Health Law’ prohibiting autopsies on the patients who died of COVID-19
  3. The WHO ordered immediate incineration or burial of the deceased COVID-19 patients
  4. The WHO labelled the bodies of COVID-19 patients as highly polluted
  5. Italy became the first country to conduct an autopsy on COVID-19 patients
  6. The Italian Ministry of Health immediately changed COVID-19 treatment protocols in response to autopsies
  7. The ventilators and the ICU were never needed for COVID-19 patients
  8. Italy defeated COVID-19
  9. 5G amplified COVID-19

In Reality, the above claims are false.

However, an article published with a title “Postmortem Findings in Italian Patients With COVID-19: A Descriptive Full Autopsy Study of Cases With and Without Comorbidities” that claim certain findings that is totally different from the rumor mentioned above. The above article is published in The Journal of Infectious Diseases, Volume 222, Issue 11, 1 December 2020.

The abstract of the article is as follows

Background

Descriptions of the pathological features of coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) caused by the novel zoonotic pathogen severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) emanate from tissue biopsies, case reports, and small postmortem studies restricted to the lung and specific organs. Whole-body autopsy studies of COVID-19 patients have been sparse.

Methods

To further define the pathology caused by SARS-CoV-2 across all body organs, we performed autopsies on 22 patients with COVID-19 (18 with comorbidities and 4 without comorbidities) who died at the National Institute for Infectious Diseases Lazzaro Spallanzani-IRCCS Hospital, Rome, Italy. Tissues from the lung, heart, liver, kidney, spleen, and bone marrow (but not the brain) were examined. Only lung tissues were subject to transmission electron microscopy.

Results

COVID-19 caused multisystem pathology. Pulmonary and cardiovascular involvement were dominant pathological features. Extrapulmonary manifestations included hepatic, kidney, splenic, and bone marrow involvement, and microvascular injury and thrombosis were also detected. These findings were similar in patients with or without preexisting medical comorbidities.

Conclusions

SARS-CoV-2 infection causes multisystem disease and significant pathology in most organs in patients with and without comorbidities.

However, it is true that the pandemic result in the reduction of the faith on the doctors and the hospital particularly the big hospital. This is a serious issue, and it must be addressed. And at the same time government should disclose the health threat of the 5G network.
