The very next day the naval cadet showed the first symptoms, while on the night between August 22 and 23, Thalia developed a high fever. On the afternoon of August 23, the ship hastily sailed to Naples in order to transfer to a hospital for treatment the cadet who had developed a fever of undetermined cause that could not be controlled. On the morning of August 24, her condition worsened and she was urgently admitted to the ICU with a diagnosis of septicemia. Despite the efforts of the doctors, the unfortunate Thalia died the next day.
