ironically, Italy being the only European country to ban entry from Chinese nationals and anyone who's been in China... is the one hit hardest by the virus.

Italy is the only Western country that is making large-scale screenings..
Most of the people infected with Coronavirus are asymptomatic, so are you really sure that, if no other European country performs tests on asymptomatic people, there are no other cases of Coronavirus in Europe?
Italy is doing a great job and we Italians are stronger than a virus.
I have confidence in the Italian health care system, it's among the best in the world and totally free.
We'll get through this together πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻πŸ’ͺ🏻

I wonder what this people who died were thinking one month ago... maybe they never suspected what is coming... life and death come suddenly... are we ready to die? I think mostly of Us not yet...

More testing, more case numbers. It means transparency. Koreans are testing up to 7, 000 per day hence higher case numbers but less than 1% CFR. Covering up is Not the way!!!

Hi I'm Italian, I think we have so many cases in Italy because we are doing the tests on people, instead in other countries like France or Germany for example there aren't so many cases because they aren't doing tests on people because, they say, they don't have the materials to do them

Here in Japan they are totally covering up the number of infected. Every time someone dies they attribute it to something else. DO NOT COME TO JAPAN for any reason. Japan is most certainly an epicenter. The government here attributed no deaths to radiation during the Fukushima meltdown.

When virus strikes and people start to panic, the behaviour is the same regardless of nationality, race or religion. People start to hoard and sweep things they normally wouldn't off the shelves.

I wonder if the manager who came back from Shanghai to Veneto the 21st of January is aware of how much he affected our economy. I travelled in EU in jan and feb and I didn't meet anyone for 20 days after returning home.

This virus can't be contained. It's already highly contagious even when you are feeling super healthy.
