Italy faces new emergency as it runs out of disinfectants

It will no longer be possible to disinfect hospitals, ambulances, public transport and schools. The League has urged the EU to step in. "The government and Europe must intervene as soon as possible."

    On the shelves of supermarkets these products have been practically unobtainable for a few days now, and the problem is now being felt even globally. It will soon be very difficult, if not impossible, to disinfect hospitals, ambulances, schools, public transport and roads in Italy.

    The risk is also that of an exorbitant increase in the prices of raw materials that are currently difficult to find, which would create many difficulties for manufacturers of detergents and disinfectants.

    The president of the Lombardy Region’s Productive Activities Commission, Gianmarco Senna, therefore launched an appeal to the government and to the European Parliament to intervene as soon as possible to try to contain the emergency.

    “We must give support to companies that are facing a period of overwork and are finding it difficult to source raw materials. We ask that the European Parliament act quickly and without delay in relation to the processing and procurement procedures, thus avoiding the overcharge of stocks. The Commission will release the ban on importing alcohol given the unprecedented Italian emergency. Italian MEPs all speak for this need,” explained Senna.

    Silvia Scurati, head of the League group in the Commission for Productive Activities, is the spokesperson for all those companies operating in the chemical sector.

    Scurati explained that “we must avoid the mechanism by which excessively limited stocks give rise to a shameful increase in costs and prices or, even worse, the failure to produce sufficient quantities of disinfectant”.

    Meanwhile the situation in Milan is new cause for concern: In four days cases of Coronavirus positive people have doubled.
