Rossi: useless and harmful to create generalized psychosis and Unjustified

While it seems to be excluded that the two Hong Kong tourists at board the Costa Smeraldacruise ship, restrained in the Port of Civitavecchia to ascertain the health of the two passengers, have been infected with coronavirus, the Association Italian Ports (Assoporti) issued a statement on the fears about the spread of this virus, which has infected more than seven thousand people in China, urging everyone "to avoid unjustified alarms that could have harmful effects on the port system."

"We have - explained the President of Assoporti Daniele Rossi - full confidence in the Italian health authorities working side-by-side with both the World Organization of Health, which with all health authorities on a global scale. These were immediately used to activate the health security in all areas at risk, in particular airports. With regard to port activities in Italy, I would urge everyone to avoid exaggerated alarms and without foundation, which would have harmful and potentially harmful effects devastating on the system."

"Institutions operating in the port sector, primarily Maritime Health, Maritime Health Agency, The Customs and Port Captaincy - continued Rossi - check with heal all ships arriving in port before releasing permission to moor, and the unloading of goods or landing People. As a Port Authority, we work to close contact with these institutions in order to ensure maximum security for everyone. We find it useless and harmful to create generalized and unjustified psychosis. What we're doing is carefully monitor the development of the situation, in order to safe port operations. We must not forget that ports connected to China represent important numbers for the country's economy, and therefore all scaremongering must be avoided."
