We could hardly be prouder of our heroes: last week our employees received a very important acknowledgement in an article of the New York Times, one of the most important and respected newspapers worldwide. Only a few weeks ago, the New York Times went to the Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital in Bergamo to report on the current Covid-19 emergency situation. This is where the emergency situation has hit with particular severity, arousing interest and great concern in the entire world not only for those affected by the virus, but also for the people who are working every day to help the numerous patients and to reduce the risk of further infection.

Among the staff who has been working at the sharp end for weeks in order to try to contain the epidemy: the team of Markas. A tireless staff that continues its work with great commitment and determination to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and safety in the hospitals and health facilities. A very precarious task, which is more important than ever before.

The 25 year old Marco Scalvini works as a staff member of the cleaning service at the Papa Giovanni XXIII hospital in Bergamo. He is a symbol of all our employees who work tirelessly and with the greatest commitment in the hospitals, not only to guarantee the cleanliness but also the distribution of meals and transport of the patients.

We would like to thank all our employees and especially those staff members who have contributed to this article despite all the difficulties associated with the current situation. We hope that this report will show the deserved acknowledgement for their daily commitment and point up the importance of a professional cleaning service in hospitals and health facilities.
