Covid, the family stranded in India returned to Florence


May 9, 2021

The Florentine family of Campi Bisenzio who had been stranded in India due to Covid returned to Italy. The mission to bring Simonetta F., her husband Enzo and little M. back on a medical flight ended last night, when the plane landed at 22:15 at Pisa airport. The family had left for India to adopt a girl and then had been blocked by Covid. The conditions of the woman, positive for Covid since 28 April, had worsened in recent days: she had had problems with saturation and need for oxygen; she was transferred with a biocontainment ambulance of the Misericordia of Lucca to the Florentine hospital of Careggi, where she is hospitalized in the pneumology department. The husband and daughter were accompanied by an ambulance from the Viola Cross of Sesto Fiorentino to the hospital for investigations and quarantine: the man in Careggi for the exams and the child at Meyer.
