Italy’s COVID-19 Patients Say Goodbye To Family Members Before Dying

Francesca Cortellaro, an Italian doctor, has described the heartbreaking final moments dozens of coronavirus patients say goodbye to family members, before they succumb to the deadly disease.

Cortellaro, who works at Milan’s San Carlo Borromeo Hospital, has had to witness patients saying goodbye to their relatives before they die alone.

“You know what’s most dramatic?

“Seeing patients dying alone, listening to them as they beg you to say goodbye to their children and grandchildren,” she said.

She added: “They are lucid, they do not go into narcolepsy.

“It is as if they were drowning, but with time to understand it.

“When they are about to die, they sense it.”

And describing the moment where she did her best to help a critically ill grandmother, she stated:

“I pulled out the phone and called her on video.

“They said goodbye. Soon after she was gone.

The doctor added that she now has a long “farewell” list of similar calls, which she has helped patients to make.

Over 41,000 people, who are mostly old persons, have been infected with the virus in Italy, according to reports.

Almost 4,000 people have been killed by the disease so far in the country.
