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 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻

Those who have mild symptoms usually have strong immune systems but mostly the eldery are the ones who tend to have severe pneumonia and organ failure.

The people who "recovered" can still infect others.

I think the Italian people are fantastic, its clear from what that bloke said they are not wanting to spread the virus themselves even if they think they may already have it and are happy that the police are also stopping anyone from leaving, all the Brits iv seen caught up in it are bickering about how they can't go off anywhere

Honestly I'm more scared of the after-virus than of the virus itself. Italy's economy is already going through tough times and we seriously can't afford another recession.

Well, unfortunately, there's an obligation to stay at home now. You can go out just to do the shopping or for other urgent reasons and you have to have a permit. Let's hope it's all right, a hug (virtual, quiet) from Italy ❤️
