Rome, March 8, 2020: As I traveled back and forth to the Vatican, this morning, to file my report on the suspension of Masses (2nd, 1st), I took the opportunity to speak with two taxi drivers about the state of their profession.
The Health Measures decreed by the government have caused us to lose 70% of our business: said one taxi-man. He explained to me that there has already been a fall off of tourists to the city in recent months, but now with corona virus they have disappeared.
In regard to the decree from the Italian Episcopal Conference which was not published on the internet but sent electronically to Bishops and clergy: to stop all religious services in Italy, I asked another cabbie his views.
He told me: Yes, with this decision to stop all the masses, the pilgrims simply won’t come to Rome. It is a decision that will destroy us.
I wondered if there is any basis to all these fears. I thought to myself that if there was, the Taxi Company Cooperatives would give instructions to taxi cab drivers on how to avoid the Corona Virus. So I asked the second taxi cab driver: Have they issued to you any special instructions on how to protect yourselves as cab drivers?
No, he said. None at all.
If one simply looks at the sidewalks in the city, one can see that NO BODY is observing the new Decree from the Council of Ministers which says persons should not approach others closer than 1 meter.
The real penalties are that businesses such a bars and restaurants which are considered not observing the decree can lose their licenses to operate. But I saw none observing them. Yes, there were much fewer locals at bars and shops, but the ones which were out and about, were moving normally. Only a few per thousand were wearing medical masks.

Who profits from coronavirus? Perhaps it is the government which gains more control. And, of course, medical suppliers,. Any suggestions anyone?
It is very likely to cause another recession which will benefit NWO who want totalitarian state control over everyone. PF is their friend. He told us to obey the UN – no mention of obeying GOD.
Agree and take Trump out in the process.
AND NO MENTION OF NUTRITION TO SUPPORT ONE’S IMMUNE SYSTEM! A PACK OF DEMONS. https://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2020/03/09/coronavirus-prevention.aspx?cid_source=dnl&cid_medium=email&cid_content=art1HL&cid=20200309Z1&et_cid=DM478053&et_rid=826054091
Indeed the big problem for the elderly of Italy is bad nutrition because they are on tight budgets and get little in pensions. Most also live alone, but in this case, living alone is an advantage. I saw so many of them visiting Churches today disconsolate of not finding the Mass. It was very sad.
The hypocrisy of PF pretending to love the poor while taking away their rights, sacramental & temporal. The Taxi Drivers Union should take this up directly with the Vatican & other workers unions should join in to support them throughout Italy. Their very livelihoods are being seriously threatened by an improperly elected bishop in white!
I can only think of the consequences if this goes on for too long: the destruction of the city of Rome by vandals and protests from angry mobs of unbelievers is imminent…
And that is what Bl. Emmerich fortells.
Suggestion to Michael Dowd:
Wearing a mask and cloth gloves is not a bad idea , especially if you are over 60. Surgical masks can be made of tea towel cloth ( double sheets), with elastic loops for the ears, Masks must cover the nose , mouth and chin and fit against the face. It has also been suggested that the eyes be protected by goggles or similar . If surgical gloves are not available, old fashioned cloth gloves are useful to keep hand clean. Gloves and masks should be changed off and washed frequently.
