  • Priest dies from coronavirus after giving respirator to younger patient

An elderly Italian priest who contracted the coronavirus reportedly offered his respirator to a younger patient and died due to the illness late on Sunday (March 22).

"Father Giuseppe is someone who always gave his life for others", said Giuseppe Foresti in the phone interview with RNS.

Father Berardelli is one of over 50 priests who have died from the coronavirus in Italy.

The parish had purchased a respirator just for Don Giuseppe, who had become infected by the coronavirus. "Someone who didn't even know". In 2006, he was appointed archpriest of Casnigo. "There have not been any respirators coming from outside of the hospital", Fr. Giulio Dellavite, secretary general of Berardelli's diocese, told CNA Tuesday.

This was reported by James Martin, editor at large at America mag, a USA publication, on his Twitter page.

"I am deeply moved by the fact that he, archpriest of Casnigo, gave up his will to assign him to someone younger than he".

"He was a simple, straightforward person, with a great kindness and helpfulness towards everyone, believers and non-believers", Giuseppe Imberti, the mayor of Casnigo, was quoted as saying by Italian news website Araberara.
