yes, I'm still alive ....
there is a slight difference between Italy and other countries,
at the first infection, the doctors went to look for all the people who had had contact with him.
and we have already made 25,000 swabs, about 2000 infected.
the infected 2000 are waiting for the second response
for coronavirus confirmation.
It must also be said that the 2 most infected regions are
among the most populated in Italy. We just have to slow down the infection
because about 10% of the infected must pass through
intensive care. and there are only 6000 beds
all over Italy.
this is just my opinion, in other countries I don't know how
the health works, I only know that in america they made 500 tampons.

I just got home from traveling yesterday, but the rental car place said they had a guy confirmed 2 days ago and lots of people in the airports were wearing masks. I think the US only has like 110 cases. A friend works for the CDC and she said they aren't too concerned. She works for the government though, so you never know.

if you need it, keep a distance of at least 1 meter from other people, avoid assembling people such as cinemas, bars, pubs and restaurants. do not go to hospitals or emergency rooms in case of fever or cough. young people can have coronavirus without symptoms, so avoid contact. always wash your hands, the mask is only for those who are already counted. stay indoors as much as possible.
my friends have always called me "unsocial", now it will be my revenge. I think at most 2 days and we won't be able to go to work anymore, all at home in quarantine.

if you don't copy what we're doing right away, yes.
you have the opportunity to do immediately what we have done in a month.
Post automatically merged:

from today all the shops closed in Italy, only essential services remain open. artisans, only for urgent calls example if a water pipe breaks.
the productive industries remain open for now, only if they manage to guarantee the safety of the workers.
yesterday where my son works they brought a colleague to the hospital,
is waiting for the result of the buffer ... :(
ps
if you move from home, even on foot
you must fill out a form and motivate the exit.
only necessary exits, go to the pharmacy or buy food,
otherwise a € 200 fine or 3 months in prison,
if the motivation is futile

I think the government is about to start closing down services and utilities. My partners work is about to introduce a working from home exercise. Its going to get a lot worse. On a side issue my son is about to help me for the first time on a large floor in Billingshurst, West Sussex. His name is .....................................David Howe!
