A 14 year old boy Tolmezzo (Udine), Matthew Chieudied yesterday of the consequences of a mosquito bite. The death occurred in Brazil. Il Messaggero Veneto reports it online, which does not add details on the pathology that led to the death of the teenager. The young man had successfully attended the first year of a city scientific high school. Immediately after the promotion he had left for Brazil to meet some relatives of his mother, originally from the South American country.

The boy’s father, a well-known city merchant, immediately left for South America. The dynamics of the death yesterday of Matteo Chieu, son of Roberto Chieu, a well-known merchant from Tolmezzo who immediately left for Brazil, is not yet clear. Only his hospitalization after the insect bite was confirmed. The teenager had arrived in Brazil to meet the family of his mother, Denise Farias, originally from Salinópolis, in the state of Pará. On her Facebook profile, her mother informed that Matteo’s wake will take place between 10:00 and 16:00 (local time) tomorrow, then his body will be cremated. “We appreciate – she added – all the prayers and messages of love and affection in this very painful moment for all of us who have known this very special angel”.
