The coffin awaiting burial queued in churches and bodies of those who died in the home is being stored in a sealed-off room for the day as the struggle of funeral services to overcome in Bergamo, the Italian province hardest hit by coronavirus pandemic ,

On Wednesday, Covid-19 has killed 2,978 in all buried or cremated without ceremony. Those who died in the hospital to do it themselves, with their belongings left in a bag next to the coffin before being collected by the cemetery workers.

In Bergamo, the province of 1.2 million people in the region of Lombardy, where 1,640 of the total deaths in the country has occurred, 3,993 people have been infected with the virus Tuesday. The death toll across the province is not clear, but the CFB, the largest funeral director in the area, has carried out nearly 600 burial or cremation since March 1.

“In a normal month we will do about 120,” said Antonio Ricciardi, president of the CFB. “A generation has died just two weeks. We’ve never seen anything like this and it just makes you cry. “

There are about 80 companies funeral in Bergamo, each received dozens of calls an hour. Disadvantages coffin as service providers struggle to meet demand and cemetery workers infected with the virus also hamper preparations.

Hospital has adopted more stringent rules concerning the handling of the dead, who need to be placed in the coffin directly without dressing because of the risk of infection posed by their bodies. “Families can not see their loved ones or give them a proper burial, this is a big problem on a psychological level,” said Ricciardi. “But also because many of our staff are sick, we do not have many people to transport and prepare the body.”

For those who died at home, the bureaucratic process is longer as death need to be certified by two doctors. The second is the specialist who would normally have to certify the death of at least 30 hours after a person has died.

“So you have to wait for the doctor to come and today, many of them too sick,” added Ricciardi.

Stella, a teacher in Bergamo, shared the story of one of the deceased with the Guardian. “Yesterday, a 88-year man died,” he said. “He had a fever for several days. There is no way to call an ambulance because the line was always busy. He died alone in his room. ambulance arrived an hour later. Obviously, nothing can be done. And because there are no coffins available in Bergamo, they left it on the bed and sealed her room to keep her family from entering until the coffin can be found. “

Adding ordeal is the fact that you could not visit people they loved one in the hospital, or giving them a proper burial.

“Normally you will be able to dress them and they will stay one night in the family home. None of this happened, “said Alessandro, the uncle of 74 years died in Codogno, Lombardy town where the outbreak began. “You can not even see them to say goodbye, this is the most devastating.”

terrible impact of the virus on Bergamo can be gleaned from the obituary section of the local newspaper. On Friday, the reader along with the recording Locatelli Giovanni online comparing the newspaper obituary section on February 9, when ads take only one page, for a copy of the March 13, when 10 pages needed to commemorate the dead. On Sunday, the coffins lined up in the church.

“We have asked for support from the national funeral company as deaths has increased exponentially,” said Pietro Bonaldi, director Lia, business associations in Bergamo. “We have reached capacity. And unfortunately, in recent days many cemetery workers have become sick with the virus so it can not work. “

case elsewhere in Italy, there has been a funeral home refused to take the body, for example in Naples ,, 47, kept in the house for nearly two days before being collected.

All religious ceremonies, including funerals, masses and weddings, are prohibited in the lock. However, two priests, one near Venice and another in the southern Campania region, subject to the referee’s funeral.
