(ANSA) – PESCARA, 15 JUL – Two out of 30 passengers tested positive for Covid-19; they had undergone a swab yesterday morning, at the Abruzzo airport, just off the London-Pescara flight. These are two young people. All travelers on board the aircraft will still have to undergo a mandatory five-day quarantine, as required by national provisions.
This is the second connection whose passengers are swabbed once at the airport, according to the provisions of the ordinance of the president of the Abruzzo Region Marco Marsilio, which requires molecular testing to those arriving from Great Britain, Spain and Malta. The first flight affected by the screening activity was the Malta-Pescara landing on Tuesday afternoon. Yesterday the results of the swabs: nine young people tested positive and all 70 passengers were subjected to fiduciary isolation for 14 days.
The regional contact for emergencies, Alberto Albani, who strongly wanted the swabs to be carried out at the airport, underlines that “the service is giving results”, because on both flights tested so far “cases of Covid-19 have emerged which probably before we would not have intercepted “. The hope, for Albani, who heads the regional task force on coronavirus, is that other regions will also follow the Abruzzo model. (HANDLE).
