More than 70 Italian children, all minors on holiday in Malta, are stranded on the island in a hotel since 21 of them tested positive for Covid with symptoms. “It is a group of boys plus three people from the agency that organized the trip and 21 of the boys tested positive for the swab performed by the Maltese health authorities – says Rodrigo Sanchez, lawyer and father of one of the boys stuck in Malta -. And all, positive and otherwise, were taken to a hotel where they will have to spend a quarantine of at least 13 days “.
“The trip is insured – continues Sanchez – and the director of the agency that organized the trip is already in Malta to assess the situation and then see what to do. And I would like to thank the agency, as well as the Italian embassy that has immediately activated to give assistance “.
“The children, all between 14 and 15 years old, are tired and some are scared – continues Sanchez – some are sick and need assistance. They cannot be alone. The Maltese authorities sent an email to the parents of the children who tested positive and wrote that would have been placed in quarantine for 13 days. Of course I do not know how this can be resolved: I hope that the embassy and the director of the travel agency, whom I thank once again for the help and assistance they have immediately given to the guys, manage to solve this difficult and complicated situation “.
