"Italy reports 475 coronavirus deaths, the highest single-day death toll for any country since the outbreak began"This joke is getting bigger by the day. If this corona were really pandemic material, all social networks would go through the roof with news of someone infected faster than you can say fish. It's not even pandemic material officialy, when you compare it with seasonal flu or other "coronavirus" data (SARS/MERS). Where I live no one close knows someone with it other than the cases you see on tv. Then you have Holland (and UK) saying "just the flu", business as usual, while other countries from the same European Union go berserk, with no direction whatsoever from Bruxelles. Nada. In Italy you can be charged with murder if you don't respect isolation procedure. Remember all those utopic movies and books and blend them into one, with a really bad script.
This is plain old nwo doing a sound check and testing people's response. Prepare for the next one.
Wonder what permanent stress does to cortizone and health.
8200 Americans died yesterday, 18 from the CV.People here must start opening their eyes, this thing is really bigger than motorsports being delayed, this is about people DYING.
Please, do it for yourselves and for the ones you love, do everything you can to avoid the diffusion.
Here (Italy) there are funeral agencies that went out of coffins, people who have to bury their beloved ones in other cities because cemeteries have no more room.
People is really dying guys! Many, too many, it's not a flu!
Take this thing very seriously.
When you get to the point we are now Le Mans being postponed is really the last thing you do care of.
I really hope it will take place in September, it would mean this s##t is finally over.
Hey, Einstein, "normal flu" doesn't kill 475 people from one area in a day.8200 Americans died yesterday, 18 from the CV.
I left a love rating as support so don't interpret it the wrong way please.i live in milan...situation is dramatic.
it's true that most of people are asynthomatic or coronavirus just hit them like a common flu but there a more people who need intensive therapy and some of them unfortunely die.
true,most are 70-80 years old,but isnt'it a tragedy as well?
and younger men and women die too.
hospitals are collapsing,no chance to heal everyone and because of asynthomatics and those who are in mild conditions but live their life as usually virus is spreading day after day.
that's the biggest issue.
Make sure to set a reminder in your agenda to read back this post in 2 / 3 weeks from now.8200 Americans died yesterday, 18 from the CV.
Just something to think about for those fools who still say - Oh this is not even as severe as a normal flu.This joke is getting bigger by the day. If this corona were really pandemic material, all social networks would go through the roof with news of someone infected faster than you can say fish. It's not even pandemic material officialy, when you compare it with seasonal flu or other "coronavirus" data (SARS/MERS).
The army is in convoy with corpses out of Italian town
The crematorium in Bergamo cannot keep up with the many coronavirus victims.
Convoy of military trucks in Bergamo last night.
In the shelter of the darkness, 15 trucks from the Italian army last night drove a large number of coffins with corpses out of the city of Bergamo in northern Italy.
The action became necessary as the crematorium in Bergamo could not keep up with the many coronavirus victims in the city, Reuters writes.
Bergamo is located in Lombardy, the region most affected by coronavirus.
Yesterday, Italy recorded the country's highest death toll in a single day: 475.
Of that, Lombardy alone accounts for 300.
An Army spokesman confirms that 15 trucks and 50 soldiers were deployed to move corpses from Bergamo to neighboring provinces following an appeal from the city.
Earlier this week, the manager of Bergamo's cemeteries, Giacomo Angeloni, said the city's crematorium was operating 24 hours a day.
24 corpses are burned a day - twice as many as usual.
But yet, the flow of new coffins that accumulated in the church's crematorium, where the benches were removed to make room, could not be followed.
The coffins accumulate in Bergamos cemeteries.
At the same time, Lombardy’s governor, Attilio Fontana, says the region’s doctors and nurses are near the breaking point.
Watch a (fairly dark) recording of the convoy tonight:
