“Ignorant people I hope you understand that the Covid it exists, it is a monster that can destroy you and even those who are vaccinated must understand that they must never let their guard down. You always have to respect the rules because this Covid monster now it is mainly affecting children“He wrote this, in early November Rita Scherillo, courageous mother of Neapolitan origins transplanted for years with her family in Osimo, in the province of Ancona. Super mom and never tame of Martina, 14 years old. A sunny, sweet girl, for whom life had unfortunately reserved a complicated existence and an inauspicious destiny. She died at noon yesterday at the Salesi maternal and child hospital, where she had been hospitalized last November 1st. In that body so tried the Covid. A “monster”, as mother Rita calls him, who in the end gave her no way out. They call them comorbidities: Martina suffered from pathologies that still allowed her to live her life, albeit amidst many difficulties. But the virus was crucial, devastating. Martina felt bad because of Covid. “She had a fever peak at 41 – said her mother – and I took her to the hospital. From there she discovered she was infected”.

In all this time the girl has never shown signs of improvement. The hospital course portrayed by the Salesi management is merciless: “From the first hours following hospitalization in intensive care – writes Dr. Alessandro Simonini, director of pediatric resuscitation at Salesi – the clinical conditions appeared critical and rapidly worsening, so much so that thetracheal intubation and mechanical ventilation. The lung was literally destroyed by the infection. We never even managed to hope to be able to extubate her. “The clinical picture was so serious due to the Covid infection that” it was never possible to consider extubating the child. “The infectious picture never resolved. virus has run its course, finding no obstacle. On the contrary, it has fallen, ending up stopping her heart forever. Martina she had not been able to vaccinate: he suffered from some pathologies, including genetic and had undergone a kidney transplant with consequent pharmacological immunosuppression and two months of hospitalization in Padua. For the latter reason she had not been vaccinated. His family was so aware of this that it raised a sort of social alarm to the community.

To shout to the world and warn: Covid strikes and is merciless towards those who cannot defend themselves. “My husband and I were very unlucky – said the mother – but on our journey we met formidable people. Many have called us and many have gathered in prayer. We must never give up and always fight. a lot of ignorant people. I hope it is understood that Covid exists, is a monster that can destroy you and even those who are vaccinated must understand that they must never let their guard down. “Rita had requested and obtained, through social networks, and not only, the comfort of a thousand voices, the prayer of an entire community that believed, hoped to the last in the infinite gift of life. “My daughter is a born champion and when this nightmare we are now experiencing ends she will come back to us. She will win the most important cup in the world, that of the life of strength and courage, because she is this, immense love, warrior, joy. “They parted with a kiss. A message of love that knows no obstacles.
