A video posted to social media on Saturday shows a man flipping through an Italian newspaper to show the obituaries of those who have died from the coronavirus in just one city, putting Italy’s coronavirus death toll into perspective.
“Good morning, dear friends, I’m going to give you an idea on how we are situated in Bergamo on Sunday, February 9,” said the man speaking in the video, as he flipped through the newspaper to show just one page of obituaries due to the coronavirus.
In the video, a man speaking in Italian can be seen flipping through L’Eco di Bergamo, a newspaper of Bergamo, Italy, which is just northeast of Milan in the nation’s Lombardy region — the epicenter of Europe’s coronavirus crisis.
“Now let’s go look at Bergamo from today, Friday, March 13,” he added, before slowly flipping through the newspaper once again, counting a devastating ten pages showcasing the obituaries of Italians who died from the Chinese virus.
