I've texted a friend in Italy regarding their shutdown. She is very frightened. People are dying. She is alone. Her father lives in Northern Italy. He is 80 years old. The hospitals have no beds. Medical personnel are getting sick. They do not have enough ventilators. Soon she will be without a job (she works in the gift shop of a Basilica). She faces a great unknown.
Here is an applicable article to the problem we face.
