ROME – Two very striking videos have come out of Italy, the new epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak, that put a human face on the scale of the epidemic that the country is dealing with.
The first is a leaked video taken at a church in Italy that shows scores of coffins in a church. The voice-over is quoted as saying “Incessant cremation cycles, caskets aligned with dignity and Christian mercy, waiting for a blessing and a spartan, rigged up a funeral.”
The second video was published over the weekend from Bergamo in Italy’s hardest-hit north and shows the scale of the number of deaths in a novel and personal way – through the explosion in the number of obituaries in a local newspaper.
