The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic seems to have perfectly coincided with Andrea Rossi’s plans for third party testing of the E-Cat SKL, which I am sure has been a frustrating situation for Rossi and his team to be in. He had said that there was a firm date for testing to start in the second half of March, but it’s hard to imagine that things could go on without interruption in the current environment.
I asked him about this today on the Journal of Nuclear Physics:
March 20, 2020 at 4:50 PM
Has the third party testing of the E-Cat SKL has started yet?
If not, has it been delayed by the CV?

The C.V. obviously is limiting the tests. I will give information about the tests when they will have been terminated. We can do something by Skype in this moment, waiting for the end of this sanitary tsunami
It’s hard to imagine how one can carry out a third party test over Skype. Perhaps they are having some kind of videoconferencing with the testers, but it would seem that they will have to just wait for more favorable conditions in order to carry out the planned testing.
In another comment, Andrea Rossi wanted to make something very clear in response to a question about using the E-Cat to fight the coronavirus:

I REPEAT: THE ECAT IS NOT A DEVICE THAT CAN HELP IN ANY WAY THE FIGHT ON COURSE AGAINST THE CORONA VIRUS.
PLEASE STOP THIS FAKE INFORMATION, THAT CAN ONLY MAKE CONFUSION AND DISTRACT FROM THE SOLE IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS, THAT ARE THE INSTRUCTIONS GIVEN FROM THE PHYSICIANS AND THE GOVERNMENTS.
DR ANDREA ROSSI,
CEO OF LEONARDO CORPORATION
