    Who knows if I'm still ok, here everything looks to be very unrealistic and doubtful. Thank you Mike.

    Ferrari is evaluating to start producing parts for intensive medical care fans, that are running out.

    That's is unbelievable and gives an idea about what's going on here.

    Yesterday a column of military truck evacuated the excess of coffins in Bergamo church cemetery

    God save Italians, and Ferrari too

    The present is a nightmare, but we had some good days, in the past.

    ciao

    Ore 14:20 - Ferrari

    L'azienda di Maranello, insieme ad FCA e Marelli, andrà a dare sostegno alla Siare, l'azienda bolognese specializzata nella produzione di respiratori per le terapie intensive. L'obiettivo è quello di raddoppiare la produzione settimanale, passando da 150 a 300 pezzi. La Siare ha già siglato un accordo con la Protezione Civile, ma necessita di supporto nella produzione delle parti elettroniche per poter incrementare il numero di respiratori prodotti a settimana.

Siare has already signed an agreement with the Civil Protection, but needs support in the production of electronic parts in order to increase the number of respirators produced per week.

    Is there any positive in the horizons ?
    I really hope the US start listening NOW and shelter in. How dumb can we all be ? Italy is the example of what will happen to us.
    For once I command the chinese regime, i mean i dont support it but by forcing people to follow orders they seem to have this almost under control 2 months in...
    France is following italys path, same for UK, Spain and maybe us...
    It takes tine for confinement policies to work and now it is a snowball effect we are still seeing: Infected ppl, full hospital, deaths and other patients passing away from this... Unless we quarantine this is going to continue... We are all going to get it in someways till herd immunity is built.
    My parents are stuck in france as they were supposed to come the us but borders shut dowm.. They are repescting this to the T.
    Stay Strong !

    Right now you have California, New York, New Jersey, Illinois have ordered all people to work from home except essential personal.
    New York leads the US in cases right now @Almost 8400. People need to obey the order.
    The disgrace that was Spring Break in Florida really leaves you wondering about people's intelligence.
    @Albert-LP ho visto che`l'esercito e`ora nelle strade? per aiutare Carabinieri??

    Yes ive been watching skynews on youtube tonight as well. Watching the Doctors in Cremona. I feel sick for the infected people and the confusion they must feel ,only to die alone. We need to really be careful here in the states. We are being allowed to go get necessities but we should wear a mask if shopping , and stay away from others. And have latex gloves to pump gas. This is serious here now. And wait until the spring break kids get back.

    I hope your parents stay absolutely put, this is vital. Quarantine has caught me in the old family house in the east of France. Could have been worse, as the house is big and old, with so many things to clean or attend, and a big garden to clean before spring...(and about a hundred bottles of wine in the cellar...) but to me the locals are not taken confinement seriously enough: yesterday, the Gendarmerie was fining those out in the streets with no particular motive, to make them understand what staying put means.

    This Covid-19 is a very nasty thing: the east of France is among the most infected regions now, due to an evangelist mass in Mulhouse (Alsace) three weeks ago, where two little girls unknowingly infected hundred of people.

    Don't wait for the authorities to tell you to do it: stay put at home, respect the six feet security distance if you have to talk to somebody, and wash you hands often and thoroughly. And hope for the best.

    Agreed! The worst part on top of that is that if something were to happen I’m not even sure I could go home. Like u said let’s pray for the best!

    Not at all. 6500 new infected, almost all in Lombardia region (Milan, Bergamo, Brescia and so on). 547 fatalities in that area (!!), a massacre. The quarantine will become more severe soon.

    We had almost 1000 recovered, but it's not going well.

    The good news is that I'm still here and I feel fine, today... And tomorrow?

    Who knows

    Ciao

    For Mike: here everything is calm. The disaster is at the hospitals and cemetery. Hope to stay away of both.

    Prayers your way. Only a matter of weeks till this as severe in France, Spain and U.K.
    Hopefully they all learn from Italy but this is likely too late even with a head start!

    They say infected figure could have deflagrated in Milano and Bergamo due to the big international football game played in Milan Stadium between Bergamo football team Atalanta and the Spanish football team Valencia, Champion league. It happened February 19th, with 80 k spectators, many from Spain and most from Bergamo
