  1. https://www.telegraph.co.uk/global-health/science-and-disease/have-many-coronavirus-patients-died-italy/
  2. I'd like to repeat say that deaths numbers are the least accurate data you should pay attention to (related to how deadly the virus in one country compared to another). This is because each country has its own protocol (or lack of it) for what is considered a CoViD death. Italy, for example, has been counting ALL infected patient as being killed by CoViD, where as other country aren't. Also, Italy and Germany avg age and % of people older than 60 are reaaaaaally similar. Just saying..
  3. Thanks. Didn't saw this graph yet. But it's in line with what I was telling, that sadly measures taken in the US were late compared to Italy. But the other graph showed an "Italy begins quarantine" that was totally inaccurate. Please stay safe guys, just received a terrible text from a friend in Bergamo. 30 mins from here, it's like being in a war zone. Also, France prime minister, just 3 days ago, was showing that going to theather was absolutely ok. Right now, they are enforcing martial law... Really?
  4. For those interested in how the situation evolved here in Italy, wikipedia has a pretty accurate page https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2020_coronavirus_pandemic_in_Italy#Lockdown_areas
  5. Where is this taken from? We experienced a lot of different phases, so this graph is as inaccurate as it gets
  6. You've got your way of twisting the truth in order to look brilliant. What you can't see is how infectious and quick at propagating this virus is. A virus that (almost?) nobody has defences for. If you wanna talk about facts, the WHO(an organization that probably knows a thing or two about health than somebody on the Huddle) declared the H1N1/09 a Pandemic in June. The virus was tracked back to September 2008. We don't know yet, but even if we say that the CoViD-19 began spreading in September, we are 3 months in advance in declaring the pandemy. Ebola average RoD is around 50%, but th
  7. That's 40% or so less than the current mortality rate. I was just suggesting another possible reason why the numbers are so high, not THE reason
  8. Since there is a lot of talking about the incredibly high death rate here in Italy, compared to other countries, I asked one of my best friend who is a doctor and a book-smart the why of it. Just for reference, I texted him on 23rd Feb (we had about 100 positives at the time), and he said that even if Italy took the harshest counter-measures of all EU, those weren't enough and that the virus was a lot more dangerous than what the authorities were telling us. Yesterday, answering my question, he said that deaths here are labeled as "CoViD deaths" just because the patient tested positi
  9. I wasn't refering to how it's transmitted, but how it interacts with the human body. Very little is known and nobody can tell for sure who can be considered an "healthy person", related to the virus I live 20 mins from Milan, but in my town we have really few cases. But people in Bergamo, about 30 mins of highway from here, said they are "living between coffins". It's unreal. People there think they have already reached the peak of it, but for the rest of the country, I think it's just the beginning (and we've been in soft lockdown for the past 7 days)
  10. Problem is, that nobody really knows how this virus attacks. We've already seen healthy guys in their 40s die, here in Italy. @Danish Panther please be safe man. 3k more positives here today. From the stats, 124k have been tested so far. Meanwhile, in the UK, nobody is taking any precautions, no event has been canceled...
  11. https://time.com/5796425/china-coronavirus-lockdown/ None of the western countries put up the restrictions China did for the past 2 months. Also, a lot of dead are from the Hubei region, of which Wuhan is the capital. The army locked down that region
  12. I don't really get the narrative that the US have reacted much better than Italy. Even with a sub-optimal response, the first red zones were quarantined as soon as the first patient was found. As of right now, mostly of these measures (from the article above) have been in place for 3 weeks at least All schools are closed in all of Italy. All churches are closed (including St. Peter's Basilica). All weddings and funerals are postponed. All restaurants are closed. In fact, all stores except grocery stores and pharmacies are closed. People ar
  13. I'm sorry raz, but from what I'm reading, you (and other EU countries, especially Germany and France) are way behind us in term of numbers. When the first ill patients were found, thousands of people from the same towns were tested in just the first couple of days (while the rest of the country was acting like "it's just another flu"). And those were small towns, less than 20k people. China is "recovering" because they shutdown everything for almost 2 months, in an extreme way
  14. Also https://www.thelocal.it/20200311/hospitals-are-overwhelmed-italian-doctors-describe-the-struggle-of-fighting-the-coronavirus-outbreak And keep in mind, a lot of this is happening here, up north, where usually healthcare is way better than in other place of the country
  15. No, you're not informed. I'm pasting this again, in case you missed it https://medium.com/@tomaspueyo/coronavirus-act-today-or-people-will-die-f4d3d9cd99ca The virus DOESN'T only affects "elderly and people with chronic diseases". You are acting like everybody did here 2 or 3 weeks ago. As of right now, our ICUs are overwhelmed, doctors and nurses working on shifts of 12/14 hours. The first sick man discovered here was 38 years old, with no health related issues and a sport guy. You're right in saying that the majority of people will only experience mild symptoms. But with unavalai
