"Father Pasquale Giordano of Bernalda (12,000 inhabitants), Southern Italy, is categoric, 'I kindly ask those who have no intention of having a swab or vaccination to refrain from coming to the parish,' he wrote on Internet.
There are currently 37 Covid positive people in Bernalda (0.3% of the population) of which four are hospitalized.
This – how Giordano calls it - 'spread of the Covid-19 infection' motivated him to 'strongly urge' young people to join an ongoing vaccination campaign – although, for young people, the vaccination is more dangerous than the disease. For Giordano, it is 'Christian charity' to do so."
