Longo named new Calabria health chief

(ANSA) – ROME, 27 NOV – The cabinet on Friday named Prefect
Guido Nicolò Longo Calabria’s as new health commissioner
replacing Saverio Cotticelli who resigned following a car-crash
interview in which he admitted he had not known it was his job
to prepare the southern region’s anti-COVID plan.
Then, Giuseppe Zucatelli was appointed earlier this month but
resigned after finding himself at the centre of a furore after a
video emerged from earlier this year in which he said using
facemasks was pointless.
And then, Eugenio Gaudio quit a day after being appointed to the
role, citing personal reasons. (ANSA).
