Italy’s Patient Zero: Migrant who delivered food at homes

The man, a Pakistani, although asymptomatic, was invited by Italian health authorities to place himself in quarantine at his home in the Pavia area, but did not follow the suggestion and went on as if nothing had happened at the Chinese restaurant where he worked.

    A young man of Pakistani origin residing in a municipality of Lomellina, in the Pavia area, tested positive for the Coronavirus and was asked to stay home for two weeks so as not to infect others.

    According to Adnkronos, instead the foreigner ignored what should be common sense, and thought it well not to respect the quarantine. And he compounded the risk by making home deliveries of Chinese food.

    Fortunately, the Carabinieri of the local station, who intervened following an anonymous report by some particularly attentive citizen, thought about stopping the careless migrant. The military intervened to return him to his home, at least for the period provided for by the protocol in cases like this.

    The migrant was reported for failure to comply with the provisions of the judicial authority, an offense for which imprisonment of up to three months is foreseen or a maximum fine of 206 euros, as required by article 650 of the Italian penal code.

    The Carabinieri have been busy reconstructing all the movements of the young man, in order to identify as many people as possible with whom he came into contact. In the meantime, the military has closed the Chinese restaurant.

    The province of Pavia, as well as the entire Lombardy region, has been particularly affected by the Coronavirus epidemic. The alarming numbers led to the decision to keep Italian schools closed for another week, not only in Lombardy but also in Veneto and Emilia-Romagna, as well as other regions.

      Italian authorities seem to have established in this particular case how the Corona virus was able to spread so rapidly in the Pavia region, namely by the willful disregard of a migrant who had tested positive for the virus to follow basic health guidelines. Let us hope that the authorities bring the full force of the law down on him, and deport him as well. We might wonder how such crass disregard of health guidelines among the migrant community might be occurring and continuing to spread the virus.

        If this is true, then he should be charged with murder. When his sentence is served, he should be deported.

      Perhaps, they should have used the North Korean quarantine.

      Source? I find nothing in the Italian newsmedia about this yet…

        its fake. How would this person get the virus to begin with. Seriously, people have no sense.

      Fake or real? Looks like a fake to me.

    • This story doesn’t make sense.

      If this man was really “Patient zero” then the events must have taken place in late January, because Italy’s first two confirmed cases were both Chinese tourists, announced January 30.

      But the story reports that this man was “asymptomatic,” yet that he “tested positive for the Coronavirus.”

      How could an asymptomatic resident of Italy have already tested positive for coronavirus, in January? It is impossible! There was little testing for coronavirus at that time, and none for residents of Italy who were asymptomatic.

      Since the story’s conflicting claims seem to be impossible to reconcile, and since nothing in the story can be verified, because no sources are given, I think we should conclude that the story is most likely “fake news.”
