Giuseppe Conte says cases of the the Covid-19 virus in Italy have risen dramatically in the past two days. The prime minister told a press conference Italy would not try to suspend the Schengen treaty as such a measure would be disproportionate. Schools in Milan will be closed, however, and people will not be allowed in and out of affected areas. Social and sporting events in Lombardy and Veneto have also been cancelled. As of Sunday morning, there were 89 confirmed coronavirus cases in Lombardy – with two in its industrial centre, Milan – 16 in Veneto, three in Piedmont – including two in Turin – and two in Emilia-Romagna

in the rest of Europe fewer cases were recorded just because no country is doing as many checks as Italy is doing. but this doesnt mean that the virus is not already next to you, it has been around the world for weeks

I believe that if our European partners would perform as many tests as we do the number of infected would rise in all the continent. All EU kept using thermoscanner for weeks, even after it was well known that the virus has a long incubation time. Now, I say, let's all be careful and, without panic, let's protect ourselves and avoid to travel if not REALLY necessary. Greetings from an Italian hospital NMT.

Remember when WHO told people that countries shouldn't close its boarders to China and it was ridiculous to worry about the Corona virus, because China had it under control?
