His claim was refuted by WHO epidemiologist Maria Van Kerkhove and several other experts on viruses and infectious diseases, who said He said : “With data from more than 35,000 whole virus genomes, there is currently no evidence that there is any significant difference relating to severity.”

The World Health Organization stressed Monday that the new coronavirus has not suddenly become less pathogenic, following claims by a leading Italian doctor that COVID-19 had lost some of its potency.

"That is not the case at all," WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan told a virtual press briefing.

The claims by Alberto Zangrillo sparked a furore on Monday, with the Italian government urging caution.

"In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy," said Zangrillo, head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, the capital of the northern Lombardy region, which has been the worst-hit by the pandemic.

 Insider - Monte Paschi crisis bank receives green light for bad bank Milan, May 29 (Reuters) - According to insiders, the Italian crisis bank Monte dei Paschi di Siena has passed an important hurdle in its restructuring. The EU competition agency approved the creation of a "bad bank" into which billions of problem loans will be outsourced, a person familiar with the matter told Reuters on Friday. Although the European Central Bank (ECB) still has to agree, the stock market was already enjoying it: the shares climbed 15 percent to EUR 1.33 and were temporarily su

"The swabs performed over the past 10 days have showed a viral load that is absolutely infinitesimal in quantitative terms compared to those carried out a month or two months ago," he told RAI television on Sunday.

That prompted cries of disbelief from other experts, who said Zangrillo may have mistaken a higher detection rate of asymptomatic cases for diminished potency of the virus.

- Still 'killer virus' -

The WHO's Ryan, an expert epidemiologist, spelled out the dangers in believing that the virus is becoming less potent.

"New viruses in human populations can do one of two things: they can evolve and become less pathogenic, or sometimes they can become even more pathogenic," he explained.

Ryan said it was not in the interests of the virus to kill everyone it infected because it could survive better if it can keep transmitting between people.

"We need to be careful: this is still a killer virus," he said.

"We need to be exceptionally careful not to create a sense that, all of a sudden, the virus, by its own volition, has now decided to be less pathogenic. That is not the case at all."

Doctor's letter can normally be sent by post

 Doctor's letter can normally be sent by post A doctor can send his report of findings to another doctor by post. He usually does not have to check whether the doctor's letter has been delivered. This is shown by a judgment of the Higher Regional Court Karlsruhe (Az .: 7 U 10/19), to which the Medical Law Working Group of the German Lawyers' Association (DAV) refers. © Photo: Monika Skolimowska / dpa-Zentralbild / dpa-tmn In many findings, medical doctors have already fulfilled their duty by throwing the doctor's letter into the mailbox.

Doctors in Italy said patient samples they are analysing now contain significantly smaller amounts of the coronavirus than the ones they saw during the peak of the outbreak. Is Covid-19 becoming LESS potent ? Italian doctors say the coronavirus is weaker than it was during the height of the pandemic.

The new coronavirus is losing its potency and has become much less lethal, a senior Italian doctor said on Sunday. "In reality, the virus clinically no longer exists in Italy ," said Alberto Zangrillo, the head of the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan in the northern region of Lombardy, which has borne the

- 'We're doing better' -

Ryan detailed a possible explanation for what Zangrillo claimed he had observed.

"It may, in some ways, have something to do with the dose and length of intensity of exposure," the Irishman explained.

"In other words, the absolute amount of virus you're exposed to can determine how severe, ultimately, your illness can be.

"That has been proven with other diseases; we don't know that that's the case for COVID-19.

"It may not be that the virus itself is becoming less potent: it may be that we are, as a community, successfully reducing the number, intensity and frequency of exposure to that virus.

"On the face of it, the virus then looks weaker -- but it may be weaker because we're doing better, not because the virus is weakening."
