Coronavirus Strikes at the Italian Family

ROME—The first call came on March 11. That’s when Roberto Biglioli says he found out that his 81-year-old mother, Giuseppina, had passed away after battling the new coronavirus.

The second call came six days later, says Mr. Biglioli, a medical worker from near Bergamo, a northern Italian city hit hard by the pandemic. “A call that, while expected, no one would ever want to receive in their lifetime,” he said. “My dear dad has also left us.”
