“Unfortunately his clinical conditions are severe due to his COVID-19 pneumonia. Lungs badly affected by disease and infection, they only manage to supply oxygen to the blood with the help of mechanic ventilation”, reported his doctor, Nicola Cilloni. That is why Gresini, team director Gresini Racing de MotoGP, is still in intensive care.
