there is a real, on-the-ground issue with our hospital systems being overloaded


Here in Italy the situation is still dramatic, even if the derivative of the contagion curve begins to show lower and lower values ​​and hopefully, in a few days, negative values.

It is not nice to see the coffins piled up, doctors with less than 60 years of age dying, to know that any problem that can normally happen to you, such as an easily solvable accident, can become fatal because the hospitals are saturated.

I hope none of you have to be in this situation. I have not left the house since March 9th. Here there's the curfew (even if they don't call him by that name). Those who leave the house without a very valid reason are subject to very high penalties and/or immediately arrested.

The economic side will be dramatic but I can guarantee you that the human side is now very, very involving and touching.

Do not make the mistake we made at the beginning to underestimate the situation by saying that it is a trivial influence: it is NOT a trivial influence. Many young people also fall ill, and some die, and these are not people who are already physically compromised: none of us can know in advance what kind of reaction he will have. There are mild reactions and in some cases reactions that resemble anaphylactic shocks. The pulmonary alveoli close due to edemas and they die even if you are attached to the respiratory machine.

This is not a joke.

Be carefully.
