Marco Carrara, the 43-year-old who tested positive for coronavirus for months, returned home to Albino, in the province of Bergamo. After 28 swabs, the green light finally arrived. The man was first hospitalized 115 days, then, clinically cured but still positive for the swab, he was placed in quarantine. Only now has he been able to embrace the family again.
Admitted on March 31 – Marco Carrara was admitted to the Giovanni XXIII hospital on March 31, shortly after his father’s death from coronavirus. He spent a month and a half in the hospital while another spent at the San Francesco clinic. There his condition worsened and he returned to John XXIII. On 8 June, rehabilitation began at the Piccinelli d Scanzorosciate Foundation, also in the province of Bergamo.
On July 24, tampons still positive – On 24 July he was discharged but, as he himself said, he could not go home “because the swabs were still positive”. So he quarantined himself in his father’s apartment: no contact with his wife and two children who he was able to embrace again only now, while the bells of the village were ringing for his final recovery.
The desire now? “Stay at home” – During these months, in response to an email that he had sent him, Prime Minister Conte “through his secretary offered me condolences on the death of my father and best wishes to me”. Then there was a phone call from the Pope’s Vicar General, Angelo Comastri, and from the Bishop of Bergamo Francesco Beschi. Now “I would like to go to the cemetery to visit my parents, then stay home for a few days with my children and my wife,” he told L’Eco di Bergamo.
