Pope Francis warned that if governments prioritize the economy over the people, there would be a “viral genocide” as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

The Pontiff emphasized that the state’s first duty is to “defend the population.”

In a handwritten letter sent to Buenos Aires judge Roberto Andrés Gallardo, the Pope said:

“I am edified by the reaction of so many people — doctors, nurses, nurses, volunteers, religious, priests — who risk their lives to care for and defend healthy people from contagion."

Francis also highlighted that “some governments have taken exemplary measures with well-marked priorities to defend the population.”

“Governments that face the crisis in this way show the priority of their decisions: people first. And this is important because we all know that defending the people is an economic disaster,” the pope wrote.

“It would be sad if the opposite were chosen, which would lead to the death of many people, something like a viral genocide,” Francis continued.

Francis also expressed concern over the “exponential growth” of the coronavirus, warning of hunger, violence, and the emergence of usurers as side effects.

“Preparing for the aftermath is important,” Francis said.

“There are already some consequences that have to be faced: hunger, especially for people without permanent work (those who do odd jobs, etc.), violence, the appearance of usurers, (the true plague of the social future, dehumanized criminals), etc.”

Francis also said people accept them as necessary evils like measures enacted to curb the spread of the virus.

“It is true that these measures ‘annoy’ those who are forced to comply with them,” he wrote.

“But it is always for the common good, and, in the long run, most people accept them and get along with a positive attitude.”

As Neon Nettle reported last week, Italy's death toll of catholic clergy from the Chinese coronavirus reached 13, as three more priests died in less than 72 hours, with dozens of nuns also infected.

The most recent three deaths reported were priests located in Milan, local media reported.

Reports also suggest many in Italy’s south are already running out of food and money as police patrol supermarkets on the island of Sicily.

Most now find themselves without income, a situation that the Mafia could exploit as people get desperate, warned Leoluca Orlando, the mayor of Palermo.

“Discomfort and malaise are growing, and we are recording worrying reports of protest and anger that is being exploited by criminals who want to destabilize the system,” Mr. Orlando said.

“The more time passes, the more resources are exhausted,” he said.

“The little savings people have are running out.”

“In the south, there is a very fragile socio-economic balance, where black market work, mafias, and crime thrive,” noted the former president of the Italian Senate, Pietro Grasso.

“There is a portion of the population that leaves the house in the morning with the sole aim of feeding their family, without a reference point. All these families now have no chance of finding a solution to their livelihood,” he said.
