Abstract

During the last 6 months, the world has been unsettled by the diffusion of a virus that has peculiar properties, causing alarm not only for the direct pathologic effect of the virus on affected individuals, but, mostly, for its only partially clarified ways of propagation [[1, 2]]. The medical, social, and economic impact of the new disease is extraordinary and also deeply touches our ethical and moral values. The public confidence in science is perturbed because the medical response is dominated by uncertainty, and the requests to science for a fast remedy are left unmet
