Obituaries Fill The Newspaper In An Italian City, Survivors Mourn Alone

Obituaries Fill The Newspaper In An Italian City, Survivors Mourn Alone

Submitted by • March 17, 2020 www.newsadmire.com

The local newspaper’s daily obituary section has grown from two or three pages to 10, sometimes listing more than 150 names, in what the top editor likens to “war bulletins.”

In the part of Italy hit hardest by the coronavirus, the crematorium has started operating 24 hours a day. Coffins have filled up two hospital morgues, and then a cemetery morgue, and are now being lined up inside a cemetery church.

By death toll alone, the coronavirus has landed in the northern province of Bergamo with the force of a historic disaster.
