CORDOVA.- Solange Musse died in Córdoba without being able to see her father. The 35-year-old girl suffered from terminal cancer and was undergoing treatment in this province; to your father, Pablo Musse, the authorities made him return to Neuquén from Huinca Renancó (south of this province) having a “doubtful” result of a rapid test for Covid-19. The story could not end worse: his daughter passed away five days later and they could never be found again.
Since the case was known the health authorities of the province, those of the Emergency Operations Center (COE) and those of Huinca Renancó do not speak about the issue.

I could never speak to any authority, only with the two girls from the health post and the police,” he said and emphasized that the situation had distressed and stressed his daughter, who was waiting for him.
As he related, They did not even give him the option of having his sister-in-law – with legal residence in Córdoba – stay in one of the hotels reserved for those who must quarantineInstead, “eight police mobiles” from different provinces escorted them all the way back to Neuquén.
Solange died while her father waited for the provincial COE to authorize him after presenting a negative swab. The times of the bureaucracy exceeded those of the young woman.
