In the same way that many priests are laboring to care for the ill and the suffering, he got the the disease.

In Italy, sixty priests have lost battle to the disease as a result of the outbreak, and many more are nauseous.

When his followers purchased him a respirator, he demanded that they give it to a younger person instead than to himself and eventually he then became infected with the disease.

He was placed on a ventilator when he arrived at the hospital. It was there that the priest  notice a younger patient who seemed to be suffering from the infection.

Despite his objections, he demanded that the technology be used on the younger patient. Berardelli lost to the illness in the hospital a short time later. In the face of this outbreak, Berardelli represents humanity.
