Italian priest dies of coronavirus after sacrificing his respirator for younger patient
An Italian priest who contracted coronavirus has died after donating his respirator to a younger patient who was also battling the illness.
Friar Don Giuseppe Berardelli, 72, was the priest for the parish of Casnigo, a small village just 40 miles northeast of Milan.
He died in hospital in Lovere, Bergamo, one of the worst-hit areas in Italy.
According to the hospital, he refused to use a respirator his parishioners had bought for him, and instead gave it to a younger patient he did not know.
