The Sicilian resident has been in isolation at Rome's Spallanzani institute since he was evacuated from Sierra Leone in mid-November. 10-days ago, the doctors treating him reported that he could breathe, walk and eat unassisted. There has been progress in his health condition with the treatment and a press conference has been called on Friday, during which it is expected to be confirmed that he is moving into a convalescence stage of his recovery and will be able to leave his isolated room at the clinic that specializes in infectious diseases.
