We understand that you may be concerned with potential risks of Coronavirus COVID-19, but we have an important message from Bergamo, Lombardia to all of you, our partners.
Today we live in a globalized world. That means that only global solutions and global answers are the good ones.
Coronavirus cases have been diagnosed in Italy as in many other countries. Current health warnings from Italian government departments are that the risk of infection is low. Italian governments and responsible agencies have taken immediate protective measures, in order to prevent new cases.
We recognize from media reports the raising concerns on the situation in Italy where screening is proceeding at higher rate than other countries, giving a misleading sensation of higher infection rates.
Please have a look at the infographic below:
We would like to confirm that our companies’ operations are not affected: all of them are running their own businesses, as usual (*number based on Confindustria Bergamo's Associates).
As Confindustria Bergamo, we have set up a crisis management team to review continuously all the risks and support our companies when needed.

Together, we are stronger than Coronavirus! #Bergamoisrunning
