“Died in the hospital in the middle of the night”, investigated doctor of the Emergency Department of Agrigento

The Prosecutor of Agrigento has registered in the register of suspects a doctor from the Emergency Department of the San Giovanni di Dio hospital following the denunciation of Salvatore Pecoraro’s family members, 75 years old from Favara, who died last June 28th. The man had arrived in the Agrigento hospital complaining of severe respiratory problems. The situation quickly escalated to death.

The 76-year-old had been subjected to all the investigations of the case with particular reference to the covid. Before being admitted he had been passed through a kind of filter created specifically for those suspicious cases. The investigated doctor (it is a mandatory step in order to carry out further investigations) has appointed the lawyer Giusy Katiuscia Amato as defender.
