Coronavirus - Italy - DO NOT underestimate this! Warning!
« on: March 13, 2020, 02:07:45 PM »
It's been few months since I post mainly because I changed job and I've been very busy. This evening I feel it's EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to share this with all my good friends here since early 2000.

Please do note this is NOT a troll post: many of you maybe remember me and the fact that I always been very straightforward and sincere.  Do not underestimate this situation in the USA: you live in a great Country with economic power and above all people able to overcome any adversity.

But here in Italy the situation is far worse to what you can read in the news.

I live in a fairly small town (25.000 people) but still at the moment we do not know where to put the bodies of dead people. It's this bad, really. The church near the town hospital today was completely full with casks waiting to be sent to the cemetery.

Commercial activities are 90% closed: two weeks ago I had the idea to buy large quantities of food (approx for 60 days for me and my wife). Supermarkets are empty, no food there for the moment. We're locked in my house waiting for the situation to hopefully get better but I'm not that optimistic.

So my friends this is not meant to scare you BUT TO WARN YOU: do not underestimate this situation. Be safe, avoid if possible contact with people and start putting away food for you and your loved ones.

Stay strong my friends, a big hug from Italy.

Interesting.  I just spoke with family members in Italy, and they didn't mention anything like what you said.  Nothing even remotely close to what you said.  I spoke with them 2 days ago.

I'm no gimmick, ask Tim Wescott, ask Coach, ask Dropping Plates (if he came back), ask Johnny Falcon.

We're living a terrible situation and I just wanted to warn and maybe be helpful to the good people here.

Italy is a big country.Parts of northern Italy are getting crushed. wait til it works its way south then see what your family members are saying.

LMAO.  My family is Piacenza, about 20 minutes from Lodi. 

They said it's pretty much business as usual.  They try not to go out much, but other than that, they said not much has changed. 

So, who's gimmick are you?   :D

Piacenza was not red zone and it's spreading so fast it's unbeliaveble.
Anyway not problem mate, I just wanted to be of any help and I'm not a gimmick.

Sounds like you were not expecting somebody with family in Italy to be posting here.


Do you care to re-phrase your bullshit initial statement?

No re-phrase at all. I don't need to post false news here.
Just wanted to warn my friends here about how this situation is terrible.
Anyway, no problem.

The Twitter post said the same things.  The hospitals get overloaded, the doctors and staff get sick, and they are making triage decisions as to who gets to use ventilators.  

If the doctors and nurses get sick who takes care of the patients?  Think about that.

You can see how this becomes a serious problem.  Much worse than a natural disaster like a hurricane.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triage

Triage is the process of determining the priority of patients' treatments based on the severity of their condition. This rations patient treatment efficiently when resources are insufficient for all to be treated immediately; influencing the order and priority of emergency treatment, emergency transport, or transport destination for the patient

Small towns usually have loads of old people . OPs post could easily be true, even the part about shelves being empty.

I went to buy some stuff today and shops in more affluent areas were sold out on things I wanted. Went to the shitty part of the borough where people don't have the money to buy in bulk and everything  was all still available. People were probably "panic" buying like OP which resulted in empty shelves

World 'class' BULLSHIT, like there is no mechanical diggers,buldozers & petrol in Italy to burn bodies or shortage of space for mass burials !.

Dumb fuck, you just said, "I'm in the red zone mate : search Codogno, Lodi, Vo Euganeo."  

My family lives in Piacenza.  It is literally a 10 minute drive to Codogno and 20 minutes to Lodi.  

Also, I have never heard Italians use the word mate.

Again, who's gimmick are you?   :D

it's just a flu type bug ffs. depending on how your immune system is currently, you'll either get hit hard (like you do every couple of years anyway) or get very light symptoms.

the people in danger are those who would struggle with a strong flu bug.
