Since December 2019, the outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) has increased to a public health emergency of international concern. During this time, how to balance cardiovascular emergency patients and COVID-19 control has become a global challenge. For acute myocardial infarction (AMI) patients with COVID-19, a safe and efficient medical environment should be ensured in parallel with effective reperfusion therapy.

I am an Italian blogger, active since 2005 with main focus on emerging infectious diseases such as avian influenza, SARS, antibiotics resistance, and many other global Health issues. Other fields of interest are: climate change, global warming, geological and biological sciences. My activity consists mainly in collection and analysis of news, public services updates, confronting sources and making decision about what are the 'signals' of an impending crisis (an outbreak, for example). When a signal is detected, I follow traces during the entire course of an event. I started in 2005 my blog ''A TIME'S MEMORY'', now with more than 40,000 posts and 3 millions of web interactions. Subsequently I added an Italian Language blog, then discontinued because of very low traffic and interest. I contributed for seven years to a public forum (FluTrackers.com) in the midst of the Ebola epidemic in West Africa in 2014, I left the site to continue alone my data tracking job.
