More than 45,000 people have joined Denunceremo NOI – We will report – a Facebook group created by Luca Fusco, whose father died of Covid-19 in Bergamo, Lombardy province, which is most affected by this virus.

The purpose of this group is to gather testimony for prosecutors in Jakarta Italy.

Luca said: “We don’t want financial compensation.

“Our main goal is to get justice from a criminal perspective, so if someone is responsible, we want them to be prosecuted and brought to justice.”

This group aims not to target health workers, but people in leadership positions who might have underestimated the virus.

Luca said: “Health workers are victims just like those who have died.

“But because the health care system in Italy is decentralized, it will be the people who lead the area that sets guidelines for hospitals.

“So if a judge decides there is a case, then his responsibilities will be at the regional level.”

Several official investigations have taken place, including one at the hospital in Alzano Lombardo, a city in Bergamo where symptoms were initially not recognized.

This is thought to allow the virus to spread within the hospital and beyond.

Prosecutors throughout Lombardy also investigated the possibility of negligence and several murders following hundreds of deaths in residential homes in nursing homes.

Meanwhile, the association of doctors and medics said they planned legal action for the death of 144 medical workers to date.

Health workers and union officials interviewed by Reuters also said that for days after the disease was first detected in Italy on February 21, many nursing homes told staff not to wear masks to avoid scaring patients.

“With all the efforts focused on hospital capacity, very little attention is paid to nursing homes which are the basis of infection,” said Flavia Albini of the CISL union.

Leading Lombardy health official, Giulio Gallera, called media accusations that the region had allowed transmission to spread to “excessive journalistic” nursing homes.
