War has not stopped for COVID-19 and neither has EMERGENCY.
At the request of Polistena municipal council, as of Friday, 27 November, EMERGENCY will be running a rapid swab service for the most vulnerable people in the area and those most at risk from the virus.
Six of our incredible team look at the camera, both cheerful and decisive. They have endured difficult months, working in the midst of coronavirus, but are as committed as ever.
At EMERGENCY, we knew that we couldn’t stop this year. We did everything we could to make sure we continued providing our medical care, even starting new projects so that we could be there for the most vulnerable people during this pandemic.
I have never been in a warzone but this felt like one.
At this moment our ship is located off the coast of Lampedusa, waiting to receive information on how and where to guarantee our guests the care they need.
The situation must change following this latest tragedy.
We laid everything inside it out on the deck.
Most of the patients we are currently admitting to the hospital suffer complicated injuries, which require complex surgery and a long hospital stay.
we can contribute to the fight against cardiovascular diseases and work towards #HealthForAll.
