Caterina Arena, the widow of Stefano Paternò, a non-commissioned officer in the Navy, who died at 43 in Misterbianco, the day after receiving the first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine: “I have to give an answer to my children, me too. It is an answer that we all need to know.” 

“My husband was fine. He went on Monday morning at 10 to get the vaccine. He was in favor. He said to everyone: ‘Get vaccinated’. He was happy. In the afternoon, around 17, he went home. We went to pick up my son from training. A day like any other. Then, when we were about to go home, he said he felt chills, he measured his temperature and it was 39 degrees. He took the tachypirin, went to bed, he remeasured his temperature and he had it at 36.5 degrees. He was calm, he was fine. My husband didn’t suffer from anything. ”

In the evening, “we went to bed – he added – and, around 2, I hear a strange snore and then he begins to flap and all stiffens. His eyes were open, but they were looking into space. I immediately call my brother who lives above of me and then 118. We begin to do the heart massage, after about 15 minutes the ambulance arrives and the doctors intervene to help him, but after about 45 minutes they say he was dead “. “The night is the worst thing when I am with my children. They begin to ask: Mom, why did Daddy die? Aren’t you leaving us too?”, said the widow of Paternò. “ report
