Locals have given thanks to the Virgin Mary herself for apparently giving protection during the coronavirus, after claiming to have seen a vision of her in the sky.

The hazy, blueish ‘figure’ was reportedly photographed at around 5.00pm on Wednesday, March 25th; appearing in the sky above San Carlos, a city in the northeastern Argentine province of Corrientes.
The image was later shared on social media, with many people believing it to resemble the mother of the central figure of Christianity, Jesus Christ.
Local media sources reported some residents compared the sighting with the patron saint of Corrientes, the Virgin of Itati.

According to believers, the reflection of the Lady of Itatí appeared three times to early Franciscan settlers from beneath a rock on the Paraná Basin. This mysterious sighting led to the settlers building a statue in her honour in 1589.
