After China, Italy comes first after the epidemic. More than 2,900 people have lost their lives in the European Union country Italy with its population of 60 million due to the corona virus epidemic.
The number of people who lost their lives in the last 24 hours was 475. While the corona virus outbreak is under control in China, the situation in Italy remains uncertain.
The center of the Corona virus epidemic in the country, Lombardy is one of the 20 regions of the country, but one sixth of the country’s population lives here. Cities with millions of people such as Milan and Bergamo are also located in this region.
Speaking to The Guardian, broadcasting in England, the explanations of the director of Bergamo’s biggest cemetery Antonio Ricciardi reveal the drama both in the region and in the country.
The number of people who lost their lives due to the corona virus in Bergamo, the second largest city of Lombardy, with a population of 1.2 million, is 640 thousand. One third of nearly four thousand deaths in the country occurred in this city.
Ricciardi reports that 600 people have been buried in the cemetery he has led since March 1. Ricciardi said, ÔÇťWe normally buried 120 people in a month. One generation died within two weeks. We have never witnessed anything like this before, crying is coming. “
It is stated that there are more than 80 companies that perform burial operations in Bergamo. Due to the epidemic, there is an extreme demand for all of them.
Because of the risk of infection, people cannot bury their funerals, which has affected the psychology of people who lost their relatives.
It is also stated that many employees who perform both burial and hospital operations are sick.
Speaking to the newspaper, a teacher who lives in Bergamo said, ÔÇťAn 88-year-old man died yesterday. He had a fever for several days, but it was not possible to call the ambulance due to the intensity. He died alone in his room. An hour later, an ambulance arrived, but there was nothing to do anymore. As the coffin could not be found, the officers left the old man in his bed until the coffin was found and locked the room so that his relatives could not enter. ÔÇŁ
Alessandro, who lost his 74-year-old uncle, said: ÔÇťNormally, we dress our dead, they stay in the family house for one night, none of which is possible. You cannot even say goodbye to them, this is the one that destroys people the most. ÔÇŁ
In Italy, quarantine was introduced across the country on 9 March. The country’s Transport and Infrastructure Minister, Paola De Micheli, said yesterday that the practice, which would normally end on April 3, could be extended.
The number of infected and dead is increasing day by day. According to the data of the last week, the epidemic does not tend to slow down in the country.
