Italy to promote new doctors to relieve coronavirus crisis

Italy will rush 10,000 student doctors into service, scrapping their final exams, in an effort to help the struggling health service cope with the coronavirus onslaught. The graduates will be sent to work in general practitioners’ clinics and at old peoples’ homes, freeing up more experienced colleagues who will be sent to the rapidly filling hospitals.

They have had just over 30000 cases. Not current cases but total cases. And of those 2500 or so died. they then rush out 10000 doctors? that's over 1 doctor for every 3 people with the disease (assuming everyone who had it is still sick and needs medical attention). Doctors that have no experience and haven't passed their tests to prove they are qualified. If anything it's just going to cause more problems. With ideas like this it isn't a wonder why their country is one of the hardest hit. If anything they should focus of getting more nurses and techs if they have over crowding.
