Coronavirus: 67 Catholic priests die in Italy

The Avvenire newspaper on Wednesday reported that a total of 67 Italian priests infected with the novel coronavirus have died since the pandemic reached the Mediterranean country last month.

The youngest of those listed by the Catholic Church-affiliated paper was 53.

“Priests get sick and die like everybody else, maybe even more than the rest,” the Avvenire wrote.

The paper said 22 of the fatalities were in the Bergamo diocese, at the heart of the outbreak not far from the financial centre Milan.
