                            Region. The coronavirus arrived in Liguria a December, well before the first patient was found positive in Codogno on February 21st. The study by Alisa carried out on a sample of blood donors in the region.

“An initial analysis of the samples collected in January shows that 13 samples were positive for IgG antibodies, which appear at least seven days after the infection. Recent data show that the first cases occurred in December, 5 in the metropolitan city of Genoa and 4 in Savona. It is extremely likely that there were already cases of Covid in our region in December“, has explained Filippo Ansaldi, director of prevention Alisa.

Already on December 27, the study reveals, a pulmonary CT scan had highlighted a case that today would be suspected coronavirus. The first case was registered on February 23rd, a tourist who arrived in Alassio from Castelnuovo d’Adda, one of the villages of the first “red zone”.
