He had not yet vaccinated, he would have given the injection “in October and then face the winter”, but Covid anticipated it. So died at the age of 61 Paolo Tortora, known as the king of catering in Naples. The wife, interviewed by Corriere del Mezzogiorno, said the man had started to feel ill in early August: “The first ten days I treated him at home and neither I nor the girls got infected even though we continued to be together. “On August 12, the transfer to the hospital and on August 22, intubation:” There was a moment when it also seemed to us that things were going better. Then after days with the helmet and some improvements the situation worsened within two hours“.
Speaking of the vaccine, the woman clarified that her husband was not a no vax: “He had already had Covid last October, even if he had been very attentive”. When it was pointed out that the man should have had the vaccine a few months ago, she explained that the intention was to have the injection next October. But then came the Delta variant. In this regard, his wife added: “He also had pulmonary frailty, which he had been carrying for years. He had pains in his shoulders, but he took an anti-inflammatory and off he went. In fact, doctors found scar tissue in his lungs when he was hospitalized, a sign of old problems. “
When asked about any remorse for not insisting that her husband get the vaccine, then the woman replied: “I wondered, of course, but then I also told myself that if it was destiny …“. Instead, she only received one dose of Pfizer; while the second she would not have done because” last year I had a serious health problem and I didn’t feel it. ”
