The bishop of the dioceses of Teano-Calvi and Alife-Caiazzo, in Campania, southern Italy, has banned priests, deacons, religious and lay people who are not vaccinated against Covid-17 to give communion.

According to the Catholic Information Agency (ACI), Bishop Giacomo Cirulli issued a provision to that effect in the Saturday (8) and, given the controversy that was generated, published an additional clarification on Monday (01).

The bishop, who also suspended face-to-face pastoral activities, pointed out that the objective is to protect “those who could not enjoy the benefits of vaccination coverage and unfortunately, as shown by the growing cases in hospitals all over Italy, suffer the damage of the disease.”

According to information from the EFE Agency, Italy reached its record of contagions in the pandemic last Thursday, when the country’s authorities reported 80 thousand new cases in 24 hours. A day earlier, the government approved mandatory vaccination for people aged from 24 years old.
