2With a total of 099 pages, the family members of 500 Covid-19 victims demanded 100 million euros in compensation from the Italian government. They hope that the civil litigation court in Viale Giulio Cesare, in the heart of Rome, can provide justice to more than 6,500 people living in Bergamo and Brescia provinces during the first, second and third waves of the pandemic. coronavirus died. The plaintiffs believed that they could prove that poor plans and decisions by the administration caused deaths that people could have avoided.
The indictment consists of three parts. The first part sets out the accusations against the Roman government. The second part deals with the failure of the Lombardy region of northern Italy in Milan. The third and most comprehensive section includes documents designed to prove the negligence or negligence of those who are politically responsible during the pandemic. In addition to the minutes of the cabinet meetings in Rome and Milan, these are first of all the deliberations of the scientific and technical advisory committee convened by the Conte government in Rome on February 5, 2020, and adopted the committee’s recommendations. In addition, reports from journalists at different stages of the pandemic, ominous reports, and statements by Francesco Zamban, a former WHO employee in Italy, have all entered complaints.
One hundred pages of corona report
The Zambons report may play a key role in this process. Zambon was born in 1949 and is a retired doctor and public health expert. WHO Active, first in Moscow and later in his hometown of Venice. In the spring of 2020, Zambian and a team of nine scientists prepared a 100-page report on behalf of the WHO on Italy’s response to the new crown crisis. This report, released on May 13, 2020, shows that the country’s outdated pandemic preparedness plan has serious flaws: the plan was formulated in 2006, confirmed repeatedly, but never updated, the report said. Less than 24 hours after its publication, the WHO deleted the report from its website-as it said, because of factual flaws.
This measure was apparently taken at the urging of Ranieri Guerra, who has served as a senior WHO official in Italy since 2005.In addition, Guerra served as the head of the Italian prevention department from 2014 to 2017 Ministry of Health Thus it is directly responsible for the prevention of the pandemic. In its self-assessment in February 2020, the Ministry of Health in Rome gave the highest evaluation of its pandemic preparedness: it stated that all emergency measures are “tested and updated regularly”. Zamban left the WHO in March, and he no longer wants to be censored by the organization’s superiors and kujon.
For a long time, the prosecutors in Bergamo have been interested in the reasons and initiatives of the World Health Organization withdrawing the critical report of Zambian and his team. Since the summer of 2020, she has been trying to clarify these issues on behalf of surviving family members in criminal proceedings, and these issues are now also being raised in class actions in the Roman Civil Law Court. Former Prime Minister Conte, Health Minister Speranza and WHO official Guerra have been questioned in Bergamo. In Rome, they can also appear in court again as witnesses.
After all, public perceptions have also damaged the credibility of the leaders in Milan, Rome and other places. They claimed that Lombardy and the whole of Italy were only unfortunately hit so early and so severely by the pandemic from China. After the shock, everything was basically done right. Prosecutors are convinced that if there are more masks, more disinfectants and protective equipment from the beginning, then the pandemic plan will actually be updated and the authorities will impose local blockades on Bergamo and Brexia sooner , Then people will die greatly.
