The Coronavirus Outbreak Should Bring Out the Best in Humanity

Pandemics are perversely democratic. They’re nasty, lethal and sneaky, but they don’t discriminate.

As of writing, there have been over 30,000 diagnosed cases and over 630 related deaths.

ConclusionsThe implementation of what the transposition of the Directive to our legal order implies, besides the implication of the professionals, Centers and Administration, a need and a consumption of resources. If not enough are allocated, there is a risk that the innovation and improvement that the transposition would imply in order to raise the level of patient safety and the quality of Radiation Oncology in Spain will remain a paper tiger and, as the Romans said, “Non progredi est regredi”, that is, when it does not go forward, it goes backwards.
