Santi Denia: “I looked for a respirator for my father and I couldn’t find it”

first_img“Death certificate suspects coronavirus”Lastly, he left a piece of information for reflection on this pandemic that is taking more than 9,000 lives in our country: “It was tremendous what we lived and I leaned heavily on my sister because my mother died five years ago from pneumonia. I would like to emphasize, on the other hand, that in the death certificate it states that he is suspected of coronavirus, but it is lawful for me to know if he is on that list or not. Unfortunately there are going to be many cases in Spain that die from coronaviruses and we don’t know. Today I read that 60 elderly people died in a nursing home in Las Rozas. Very painful. I would like to know if my father is on the list and I would like him to be on it. My father was going to turn 86. We know that the elderly, most have previous pathologies. But what is clear to me is that he would still be alive if not for the coronavirus. I don’t know how long, if one, two, three or five years. But he would still be alive. The Government must make an effort to do the maximum number of tests possible. The WHO says that the asymptomatic can also infect, it is necessary to make test as it is. I do not want to enter politics, I am only expressing myself as a citizen who has lost his father. My message, anyway, is that we will have hope and that, in three weeks, we will have the security of having overcome this virus. ” Santi Denia, U19 coach, shared in The spar, of the SER, the hard trance he has suffered these days when he had to fire his 86-year-old father as a consequence of the coronavirus on March 21. “This virus has taken my father and is taking many people. All citizens are suffering with this issue. I am very sorry and very helpless for all the circumstances that have surrounded the death of my father. He was fine, in a residence in Albacete. It was very fast. My sister gave her time to say goodbye because the doctor told her at lunch: she told us that she had worsened. I arrived two hours later, yelling “Chapi” which is what they call him, and he didn’t answer anymore … “. The tragic outcome was dramatically narrated by Santi Denia: “I tried to find a respirator in Albacete for my father. He believed it was the only chance to give him a chance. I asked the doctor, friends from Albacete, friends in Madrid, but Spain has a complicated situation. I also tried to take him to Madrid, but the doctor advised against the transfer. There was no option because there were no respirators anywhere. “The former player from Albacete and Atlético de Madrid had the strength to share with all of Spain the sadness and helplessness with which he had to fire his father at the wake: “There was no way to get that respirator because the system is overflowing. I I am nothing more or less than anyone to give me a respirator. Just a citizen who was looking to give my father a chance. The next morning, they called my sister and told us that she had passed away since 5:00 pm you had to bury him. Four people went to the wake without being able to hug each other, with masks. It was very hard. Then inside the bad, at least we were lucky that we were able to fire him. Within the bad we were lucky, but I couldn’t even hug my sister. “last_img
