Italy was the first Western country to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic. USCAs (Special Continuity of Care Units) are teams of doctors responsible for monitoring and providing home care for Covid-19 patients. USCA doctors are very young. As a matter of fact, due to the shortage of personnel to combat the pandemic, from March 2020, the recruitment of recent medicine graduates has been made easier, abolishing the state exam for qualification to the medical profession. The photographs are slightly out of focus due to the transparent plastic I had to cover the camera with to avoid contamination.
