Pic Talk: Pope Prays Alone In Empty St Peters Square

One of the countries that is facing the dire consequence of Covid-19 outbreak is none other than Italy where there 86,498 positive cases of coronavirus while 9,134 people lost their lives already. Realising pretty late about the outbreak, finally, the whole of Italy went into shutdown mode.

Other day, a scene that none has expected will happen in this world ever, has happened in Italy. The religious head of Roman Catholic Christians, Pope Francis has other day given a prayer to an empty St Peter's Square. While he is giving his prayers and blessings through video link all these days from St Peter's Basilica, for the first time Pope has come out into the plaza are to deliver the message.

The world have never expected that Covid-19 outbreak would force some greatest of the great monuments and religious sites to be shut. But then, here comes we are witnessing it. Has Italy taken stringent measures in the earliest days of the outbreak, the situation would have been different.  

Anyway, all these images should be a lesson for India and the USA, which are entering into some critical phase now.
