The Caserta patient infected with the Omicron variant is – some newspapers report today – an Eni employee: he would have landed at Fiumicino airport which left South Africa – coming from Mozambique – on 11 November last. At the time of departure he had no symptoms and was negative for Covid.

After arriving at the Roman airport he went home to spend a few days with his family in Caserta, where he lives with his wife, two children and two in-laws. On 15 November he left by plane – reports Repubblica – from the airport of Capodichino (Naples) to Milan to undergo a medical examination scheduled by his company. He should therefore have returned to Mozambique.

On November 16 – after a night spent in a hotel in the Lombard capital – he goes to the health facility for the visit and is also subjected to a Covid swab. On the same day he leaves Milan for Fiumicino where he should have embarked to return to Africa, but during the journey he is informed of his positivity; then continues home to Caserta.

The analyzes will indicate that his family members are also positive and the classes of the two children are placed in quarantine. Following the emergence of the Omicron alarm, insights are made on his case, coming from the man precisely from the area at risk. The analyzes of the Sacco hospital in Milan sequenced the new variant. The race to trace the contacts of the man during his stay in Italy was started both in Lombardy and in Campania.

Two primary school classes of Caserta in isolation for precautionary reasons following the first case of positivity to the Omicron variant found in a manager returning from Mozambique; these are the classes attended by the two sons of the man, both positive, where, however, no new cases have emerged. In recent days, the ASL of Caserta has traced all the contacts made by the man and by his relatives, in particular by his children, carrying out a few dozen swabs to the pupils and teachers of the two classes; already two series of tests carried out after five days, and both have given negative results.
