  • No tampons for a family from Sortino
  • The head of the health center said the reagents were missing

It seemed that the lack of reagents needed for swabs was now just an old memory. Instead, the problem reappeared in Sortino, a mountain municipality of Syracuse, as emerges in the story of a family, raised by the councilor of the Union of Municipalities “Valle degli Iblei”, Sebastiano Bongiovanni


“A member of a family unit, residing in Sortino – tells a BlogSicily Sebastiano Bongiovanni – tested positive after a swab but having been in close contact with other family members, the risk that the latter were infected is quite real “.

Reagents are missing

“For this reason, the relatives – continues Bongiovanni – have contacted the head of the health center of Sortino, who admitted the lack of reagents, therefore there is no possibility to carry out swabs. The same manager told them to stay at home, observing the quarantine ”.

“Serious situation”

Sortino’s family is at risk from Covid19, they are all in serious apprehension and fear for their health, on which the sword of Damocles of the virus hangs. The woman’s relatives believe that knowing if they have contracted the disease would increase their chances of fighting it better.

“It is a really serious situation – adds the councilor of the Union of Municipalities“ Valle degli Iblei ”, Sebastiano Bongiovanni – especially because this problem seemed to have disappeared. It dates back to the first phase of the pandemic, now in full second wave we are faced with the impossibility of having tools that can tell us if a person has contracted Covid19 or not “.
