CWN Editor's Note: The CO19 lockdown has aggravated the financial problems of the Vatican, which was already facing a serious budget deficit.

For the last fiscal year, the Vatican’s budget deficit was $77 million.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above). About CWN news coverage.
