Priest performs final blessing before Italian army trucks take coffins

0

Italian soldiers were once again lifting coffins into army trucks today as cemeteries and morgues are overwhelmed by the scale of the coronavirus crisis.

A parish priest in the town of Seriate gave a final blessing to 45 coffins today after they were laid out in neat rows in the San Giuseppe church.

The coffins were carried outside by personnel in white protective suits and face masks, who loaded them onto trucks to be taken away in what is becoming a familiar sight in northern Italy.

The bodies were destined for a crematorium in Ferrara in the province of Emilia-Romagna, because their home province of Bergamo cannot cope with the mounting death rate.
