Palma Reale had decided not to get vaccinated. As well as her husband Alfonso Vozza, who today is positive for Coronavirus and in home isolation together with the other three daughters of the couple, who are also infected. She, on the other hand, died at the age of 28 after having given birth to her fourth child a few days ago by caesarean section. She had been transported by ambulance from the province of Caserta to the Covid ward of the second university hospital in Naples where she remained for days in intensive care. The Corriere della Sera tells today that Palma Reale di Santa Maria Capua Vetere contracted the virus in a particularly violent way: the saturation dropped to 62 percent, one lung was irreparably compromised.
«In the days following the birth – explains to the daily Giuseppe Bifulco, director of the ward for pregnant women with Covid at the Polyclinic – there was an aggravation of the respiratory picture and we had to transfer her to resuscitation; unfortunately he didn’t make it ». Palma’s husband points the finger at the Caserta hospital, where, according to him, hospitalization was refused without a valid reason. “They sent us back home – he told Fanpage – saying that we could be treated at our home even though my wife was eight and a half months pregnant. We wasted hours on the phone getting an ambulance to arrive, they didn’t even know what to do. Fortunately, the mayor of Santa Maria Capua Vetere intervened, finally something moved and my wife was taken to the Policlinico in Naples. Maybe it wouldn’t have happened if Palma had been hospitalized immediately ».
