Covid, here are the seven questions to Speranza and Conte

Seven lines of investigation. Seven answers to as many questions to which until today Conte II government and in particular the former Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, they never wanted to give an answer. Why has there never been clarity about the mistakes made in the very early stages of the Covid emergency? Can oversights, delays and missteps really be dismissed with the fact that the country and, therefore, the executive were faced with an emergency situation, difficult to foresee and, therefore, difficult to manage according to protocols? On Tuesday, in his speech to the House, the premier Giorgia Meloni he has made a decisive change of course by stating that his government will not only replicate the restrictive model implemented in the past, but will also go to the bottom to shed light on the mists that are gathering over the management of the pandemic crisis. Hence the desire to set up an ad hoc parliamentary inquiry commission.

The targets that the commission aims are essentially seven and mainly concern the first months. At the time Giuseppe Conte sat in Palazzo Chigi. Those were the days of the countless circulars of the Ministry of Health that confused about the use or not of the mask, about the meaning of “close contact”, about ban on carrying out autopsies on dead patients of COVID-19. It was also the days of chaos on flights from China, come on lockdown announced night time on television, of the missed red zones. The work of the commission does not really aim at carrying out judicial investigations: it is true, by law it will be able to proceed “in investigations and examinations with the same powers and the same limitations as the judicial authority”, but the goal is not to throw anyone in jail. Rather, it will aim at establishing whether there are political charges, uncovering mistakes made, trying to understand what – to use Meloni’s words – “didn’t work”. “It is useful to clarify what happened from the administrative point of view”, explained yesterday the new Minister of Health Orazio Schillaci.

Here are the seven strands on which the commission will move:

– because the national pandemic plan which was drawn up in 2006?

– because the national pandemic plan was not activated after the WHO declared a state of “international public health emergency” on January 30, 2020 due to the coronavirus and not even after the Council of Ministers declared it on January 31, 2020 state of emergency precisely because of the “health risk associated with the onset of pathologies deriving from transmissible viral agents”

– why the Technical-scientific committee have you never considered activating the national pandemic plan?

– was there a national health plan to combat Covid? And, if there was, why was it never published? (The reference is to the so-called “secret plan”)

– how was the task force composed and what did it do to which the Ministry of Health had asked to coordinate any initiative to combat Covid on 22 January 2020?

– have all national, European and international regulations on epidemiological emergencies been respected?

– what were (and of what nature) the relationships between the competent authorities of the Italian State, the WHO and all other third parties starting from the pre-pandemic period? How did they move to manage the emergency?

The proposal to establish the Commission has already been filed by Galeazzo Bignami of Brothers of Italy. Similar proposals also came from the Lega and Italia Viva. The idea of ​​the majority is to find an agreement on a shared text, without “diktat” or preclusions on the part of Fdi. What these 7 questions bring with them, in fact, are all the shadows on which we still need to shed light: the report by Francesco Zambon mysteriously disappeared, the minutes of the task force kept for too long in a drawer, the secret plan, the choices on the sending the masks to China. And again the Chinese respirators, the phony Ffp2, the Russian military in Bergamo. And obviously – as specified by Meloni in the Chamber – a beacon will also be placed on those who made “millionaire deals with the purchase and sale of masks and respirators”. Without political discounts.
