At Least 65 Priests Have Fallen to Corona in Italy

 At least 65 priests have already fallen victim to the corona virus in Italy.

(Rome) The count hurts. However, it is part of reality and therefore necessary: ​​at least 65 priests (as of March 23) have already died in Italy as a result of the coronavirus infection. The Avvenire, the daily newspaper of the Italian Bishops' Conference, documents their names. The oldest of these priests was 104 years old, the youngest 45 years old.

While devout Catholics criticize the pastoral measures in connection with the coronavirus or at least complain about a hesitant attitude, many priests are exposed in particularly hard-hit areas.
Although the diocesan priests make up only 0.05 percent of the total population, they make up one percent of the dead. This means that their share of coronavirus victims is twenty times higher than their share of the population. Numbers that say something.
The Bergamo diocese, like the province of the same name in Lombardy, is most severely affected by the coronavirus epidemic. At least 20 priests of the diocese have succumbed to the coronavirus. Most of them were still involved in pastoral care, despite some of them having advanced ages. They should be named as witnesses

The oldest priest among the mountain masks was 91, the youngest 59 years old.
Pastoral care in the age of the corona virus presents priests with new challenges. The bodies are all being cremated in Italy by government order. A funeral is made impossible by the state because of curfew or restrictions on meetings, and by the church because of the suspension of Mass and religious ceremonies. The coronavirus infected mostly die lonely in intensive care units. The relatives cannot even say goodbye. Not to mention the concerns about cremation.

Yeah, I hope you print their ages because it ain't corona virus killing them, but 'sedation' (to save sodomite pedophile pope population control francis money for his drug and sex palance orgies):

Doctors in #España with tears in their eyes tell how people over 65 must have their respirators removed to give it to the younger people suffering. Seniors (?people over 65?) are sedated so they don't suffer. " #CoronavirusPandemic #CoronaVirusUpdates


This crap has been goin' on in Italy and Europe for years (due to chinese guest workers w/their novel flu strains for which population has no immunity):

On 19th February 2016 the Italian National Institute of Statistics (ISTAT) released 2015 mortality data reporting 9.1% excess mortality as compared to 2014, this corresponding to 54,000 excess deaths and representing the HIGHEST REPORTED MORTALITY RATE (10.7 per 1000) SINCE WORLD WAR II (1).


In recent years, Italy has been registering peaks in death rates, particularly among the elderly during the winter season. Influenza epidemics have been indicated as one of the potential determinants of such an excess. The objective of our study was to estimate the influenza-attributable contribution to excess mortality during the influenza seasons from 2013/14 to 2016/17 in Italy.

We estimated excess deaths of 7,027, 20,259, 15,801 and 24,981 attributable to influenza epidemics in the 2013/14, 2014/15, 2015/16 and 2016/17, respectively, using the Goldstein index. The average annual mortality excess rate per 100,000 ranged from 11.6 to 41.2 with most of the influenza-associated deaths per year registered among the elderly. However children less than 5 years old also reported a relevant influenza attributable excess death rate in the 2014/15 and 2016/17 seasons (1.05/100,000 and 1.54/100,000 respectively).

Over 68,000 deaths were attributable to influenza epidemics in the study period. The observed excess of deaths is not completely unexpected, given the high number of fragile very old subjects living in Italy. In conclusion, the unpredictability of the influenza virus continues to present a major challenge to health professionals and policy makers. Nonetheless, vaccination remains the most effective means for reducing the burden of influenza, and efforts to increase vaccine coverage and the introduction of new vaccine strategies (such as vaccinating healthy children) should be considered to reduce the influenza attributable excess mortality experienced in Italy and in Europe in the last seasons.

"There is a very wide gap, which is confirmed by the concrete experience of so many families who have elderly people who are dying either at home or in HOSPICES," explained Giorgio Gori.

"There is a noticeable number of people who are dying due to the virus. I say this because the main cause of death is PNEUMONIA, and some are unaccounted for, and not are registered as victims of the virus, because nobody tested these elderly people either before or after their death."

According to the mayor's office, 400 people died in Bergamo and neighbouring towns last week - that's four times the number who died the same week the previous year - yet only 91 of them had tested positive for the virus.

In U.S. they clean out the nursing homes every year right before Easter (that pagan Goddess worship day) by banning visits because of pneumonia outbreak, then they 'test' and diagnose w/pneumonia those they want to kill, then since they're about to die (doctor swears to God on his gov't medicaid bible) to spare them pain they either kill them w/morphine (sedation) or just with-hold all treatment (i.e. food, water, medication, changing/washing) and all the 'catholic' lay nurses and social workers go along to keep their jobs.

But this year will be a killing bonanza (and probably every year from now on). How many chicoms went to the local nursing home? This is what commie national health, no higher rate for 'pre-conditions,' and free medicare and medicaid for all. Let's kill, kill, kill and get big bucks for our 'charity' (maybe all the opus devil lay executives (like billy bar) and the millionaire s/h/its (like killer keehan, mahoney, dolan and cupich) will get a bonus for their devil work (like Clinton/Obama and Rahm Emmanuel)!

Hogan is aggressively testing anyone in a nursing home "congregant sites" or with a precondition


And CuomoMcCarrickCommieFaggotFrancisNN is praisin' him for it


Hogan closes everything but the abortion clinics--they're all open in catholic commmie *p*lanned maryland

Sign the petition to get Hogan to close the abortion clinics

Call Governor Hogan today and demand he SHUT DOWN Planned Parenthood:

(410) 974-3901

Sure if you're a baby killer, why not kill the nursing home patients too and call it Corona virus? And use it to lock up everyone, destroy the economy and impose a commie revolution?

Happy Easter!

When your spam includes the use of idioms, you can spice up your prose a little more. You place an "a" before your idioms with a hyphen to create added emphasis to better achieve that down-home, regular guy authority you're aiming at. Like, "a-praisin'" or "a-goin' on" and so forth.

Sixty five priests is a very high number. It is obvious that Italy is being ravaged. Why is Italy bearing the brunt? ---Pope Francis may deny it. However, he definitely showed signs of the illness. He also is quoted as saying that the virus was caused by climate change. Specifically, he said that the illness was caused by a rebellion of the Earth to its suffering such great abuse. Isn't there another type of abuse that he should be concerned about?

Noticing the age of dying Priests and it's tragic because many of them were ordained before June 18,1968.
