What They're Saying: Walter Ricciardi

"When doctors are infected, that means the right practices were not put into place, apart from the fact that the virus is very contagious."

-- Walter Ricciardi, a member of the executive council of the World Health Organization, after a travel ban was imposed in an area near Milan and all four Serie A games were postponed on Sunday over fears of the spread of coronavirus. The outbreak, which has taken the lives of two Italians in the last 24 hours, came after a man sought medical treatment at a hospital in Lombardy on Tuesday and is believed to have infected dozens of patients and medical staff, who then spread the virus.
