Source: an anaesthetist and clinical fellow at University College London

I read it on my Twitter feed but the source also told his story to the IK's 3rd largest newspaper, the Daily Mail, which reported it today (link below). The source in the story and social media is Jason van Schoor, an anaesthetist and clinical fellow at University College London, who relayed what he head from a friend/paramedic working in Northern Italy.

I do not know van Schoor but he has had a Twitter account since 2012, has more than 8,000 followers which include some people in health care I know and respect. He was quoted today in an article by UK's 3rd largest newspaper, the Daily Mail (link below).

The fact that others are picking it up too does not make it sketchy.
