First the party, then the fear of a possible outbreak fortunately proved unfounded. In Taranto, an ASL manager celebrated his birthday in his office in early October, without respecting the anti-contagion protocol; ignored, in fact, the spacing and use of masks. However, he later discovered that he was positive for Coronavirus and the 40 employees invited were quarantined before returning to work, once their negative test was ascertained.
Same episode in Bari – The interested parties were all workers in the administrative area, luckily affected by the regime of smart working and for this reason less crowded. It is not the first case in Puglia in which medical personnel commit one lightness and does not comply with the rules to avoid the spread of Coronavirus. A few days ago a similar episode took place in Bari, in a ward of the Giovanni XXIII pediatric hospital. Again 20 between medici and nurses had attended a party in the facility during service hours, complete with photos on social media to document the incident. After the discovery of a positivity, swabs and quarantine for dozens of people.
The alarm of the Order – Alarming episodes of indiscipline. For this reason, the president of the Order of Doctors of Puglia, Filippo Rings, felt compelled to urge colleagues to “limit interpersonal contacts and respect in a way scrupulous the anti-contagion rules, because doctors are the first to set an example in wearing masks correctly, maintaining spacing social and sanitize your hands “.
