Piero Chiambretti was among the first witnesses in the entertainment world to live the direct experience of Covid, both on his skin, having passed a long hospitalization during the lockdown, and for the pain of having lost his mother Felicita, who died of the virus. “The situation is serious – said the conductor in the program ‘Giletti 102.5’ on Rtl 102.5 conducted by Massimo Giletti and Luigi Santarelli – I experienced a personal drama and I saw with my own eyes what Covid is in the hospital, I saw die a person exaggeratedly dear to me in four or five days. I am shocked and disgusted when I hear someone say that Covid does not exist, that it is an international plot to bring the world’s economy to its knees ”. So the Tiki Taka host goes on like this:
“First of all I am surprised that everyone is surprised because when the situation was a little normalized in May, the virologists, the real ones and the alleged ones, said that there would be a relapse in October. If the prediction was so convincing, it was necessary to equip oneself psychologically and from an organizational point of view, but it does not seem to me to be so and this is the only real big flaw of this government, beyond the color that interests very little. I haven’t voted for 10 years so I don’t have such a keen sympathy with the speaker ”.
Covid deniers, Chiambretti’s words
He cannot fail to dedicate a passage to the denial echoes which have often been talked about in recent weeks and which will certainly continue to be talked about: “The virus is democratic, it does not look at anyone, it affects the president of the United States, footballers, men of great power, we must be very careful, we are the best protocol: we must understand that as long as we have to fight the virus, we must do what they also tell us if they tell us to put the mask in the house, if it should be useful to solve the problem, we should put it on. As long as there are the inventors of aperitifs, canapés and evenings in the gardens and terraces with 30/40 people where there is no one wearing a mask, it will be difficult for the Government and the Scientific Technical Committee and Bill Gates to solve the problem ” .
Chiambretti’s memory of the days of hospitalization
Finally a few words about the direct experience lived in the hospital and the memories of those days:
“In those moments in the hospital the phone is the only thing that keeps you attached to a reality that is familiar to you and therefore in the most difficult moments I made videos of how I was dressed, the mask, the scars, the needles in my arms. When I go to see them every now and then, in the meantime I don’t recognize myself and only now do I realize what I risked. Even on the death of my mother there and then I did not experience a real pain, I experienced it when I returned home healed. If I put these videos online, they would be enough to silence many of today ”.
