It’s with an extremely heavy heart that I note down that Erica's grandfather, Ivo Bissoli from Domegliara near Verona in Italy; who turned 96 years old last December; was admitted to intensive care today caused by complications after suffering a COVID-19 infection.
Since the virus already affected his kidneys, the doctors, who are keeping him in a comatose state, are giving him only a couple of hours, perhaps days, to live.
We are extremely saddened that due to the quarantine and travel restrictions, my family cannot even go see him for a last goodbye.

After a fierce brief battle combating the COVID-19 virus, Ivo’s immune system and organs lost. He passed away around 11:30 last night. Our family is in deep grief.
