 Wearing full-body protective gear, Dr. Luigi Cavanna visits his patients in their homes in small towns and rural areas in the Emilia-Romagna region of northern Italy. The peaceful countryside setting may be different from the crowded city hospitals, but the disease is the same. He checks his patients’ oxygen levels, uses ultrasound to scan their lungs and tests them and their relatives for COVID-19. Many of them don't need to or don't want to be taken to a hospital and are grateful to Cavanna for coming to see them in their homes. (Image: AP)
