Italy’s poorer south preps potential explosion of coronavirus, threatens students with ‘flamethrowers’
Discussion posted by: IRWeasel
Italy’s poorer south appears to be readying for war, expecting a sudden explosion in coronavirus cases within the next 10 days, as the novel illness advances down the peninsula from the northern, affluent Lombardy region. One of the first cases of the coronavirus in Italy was identified February 21 in Codogno, a town of just under 16,000 people located southeast of Milan in the northern Lombardy region. The rapid spread of the virus devastated the region within a matter of weeks. Lombardy now accounts for nearly half — 41,007 – of the country’s confirmed cases, with at least 6,360 deaths, according to Milan News International.
