Grandmother and mother died within hours. Infected by Covid, they joined together on the very long list of victims of this epidemic. Not even time to bury the old woman whose heart stopped yesterday afternoon, when the phone rings for another terrible news. Mom is gone. After fifteen days of hospitalization at the San Leonardo hospital, the 57-year-old patient in a bed in the Covid wing died. Two funerals 48 hours apart and a family from Castellammare torn by grief. “Covid destroyed our family” the voice is firm. Gennaro Scarfato punctuates the words, he needs to take breaks to accept what happened so quickly. Young chef, his life will never be the same: “I still had to do many things with my mom. She was young. Now many are talking about Christmas, but you have to be careful. Covid destroys lives. You have to know”. He imagines them united by destiny even now that they are no longer there: “Hi Nonna Libera, hi mum Celeste. Now you are holding hands and you are flying in the sky, you are going to a better world than this, now look at us from up there and give us strength to move forward”. But with his thoughts fixed on what has happened to him, he torments himself thinking of those who still do not believe in it: “I have strong words against the deniers, but I prefer only to repeat that we must be careful”.
