An Italian priest who gave a respirator to a younger coronavirus patient he did not know has died of the disease.

Father Giuseppe Berardelli, 72, died in hospital in Lovere, Bergamo – one of the worst-hit cities in Italy.

At least 50 priests have reportedly been killed by coronavirus in Italy.

The world’s worst affected country with 6,077 deaths so far, Italy has been under prolonged lockdown as it tries to stop the spread of infections from the worst-hit northern region of Lombardy.

Coronavirus has been spreading rapidly across the globe, affecting more than 160 countries and claiming more than 16,000 lives.

  1. From Ahmadiyyah perspective, why God allow Coronavirus destroy millions people life, included children?

    God is LOVE, God love His people unconditionally

    Please Zia , can you explain it? Rafiq dose not know Islam better than you. He play a word game with me.

  2. I agree that brother Zia knows Islam better than me. My ;nature’ is that I use a lot of common sense (I think). In other words: together we are a good pair, are we not? Brother Zia is not only an expert on Islam, but also on Christianity and other religions and comparative religions. Of course he has common sense as well ! Right, I myself did not go ‘so deep’ into things. Every person is different.
