(ANSA) – TURIN, MAR 18 – Piedmont hospitals are close to
collapse due to a surge in COVID-19 cases in the third wave of
the virus featuring more dangerous variants, the nurses
association in the northern Italian region said Thursday.
    “The hospitals of Piedmont are on the verge of collapse, a fresh
nightmare for nurses and health operators who are at the end of
their tether,” said NURSIND regional chief Francesco Coppolella.
    He said “in the operational centres interventions have passed by
a large margin the maximum threshold, in ERs overcrowding is
becoming unsustainable, and the transformation of wards to
recoup COVID beds is constantly shifting”.
    Coppolella said health staff were “being squeezed beyond their
limits” and had been so for the last year.
    “Everyone is hoping for a true and real acceleration in the
vaccines that can help us not fall into this nightmare again”.
