  1. They deserve some good news

  2. Yesterday marked exactly 2 weeks since the lockdown. Hopefully this means less and less new cases will be reported

  3. Remember this, next time someone claims that calculus has no application in real life.

  4. I listened to an interview with an Italian journalist, and he said his biggest fear was that countries were going to report only the deaths that are attributed to otherwise healthy people who died *from* coronavirus, and not *with* coronavirus. As in, that would be the lesson that some governments “learn”. To avoid panic. Hope he’s wrong.

  5. Hopefully they’ve already hit their peak but we won’t really know for another week.

  6. Their highest day for deaths was also 5 days ago.

  7. – Good news, cases down!

    – Relax lock down.

    – Cases spike up again.

    – Rinse and repeat.

    ​

    This is what I think will look like. Everywhere.

  8. The lack of consistent testing is a serious problem when it comes to evaluating the number of deaths. For example, deaths are “confirmed” as a result of coronavirus only after testing and there are limited tests. A comparison of the the normal number of deaths in prior years for the same period as the spike in “confirmed” corona deaths with the current number of actual deaths in the same region indicates that there is a huge spike in “other” deaths, much , much bigger than the corona spike, in the exact same period. In a nutshell, the spike from actual corona deaths appears to be about 4 times the number of people of “confirmed” corona deaths – this is because, where no test was done, the cause of death is listed as “other” and so not included in the ‘confirmed” statistics. Things in Italia are worse than the official stats suggest and may have not improved.

  9. This doesn’t mean it’s close to over. It’s literally one region where the new cases are going down, and the mayor of Bergamo basically confirmed they’re no longer counting people who die in their homes and haven’t been tested.

  10. no it didn‘t it fell slighty 2 days in a row to rise again on the third day stop with the bullshit „news“

  11. So do experts believe things will be back to “normal” in a month? 3 months? A year?

    Seeing how hard Italy has been rocked economically, it’d be interesting to see how they open the country to tourists and what precautions are taken. As soon as there is a light at the end of the tunnel there will be enormous pressure to open the gates and let everyone back in, but this could undo all the work they have taken to contain the virus.

  12. These figures are wrong. You should be looking at the increase in total number of cases rather than the increase in total number of *active* cases. The former has actually seen an increase on Tuesday (5249 vs 4789 on Monday).

  13. Kinda makes sense doesn’t it? It’s not like the death till can decrease ever.

  14. Well, thats positive… seems the stay at home method is working

  15. and all the non direct deaths ? i mean icu overcapacity numbers

  16. At least some good news. Hope this keeps up

  17. Help me understand how China had less deaths vs Italy?

  18. Those are rookie numbers. I think I see USA coming down the stretch at an awful pace. I think USA is risking it all and going for the win!

  19. Is the curve flattened yet?

  20. Aaand it’s back up again. A new 6,153 cases so far today (1:20 pm) when yesterday it peaked at 5,210.

  21. When your going through hell.

    Keep going.

    Godspeed Italy.

  22. Johns Hopkins University says otherwise.

  23. Good for them. I wish I could be optimistic about that happening here in the states but they’re is just to much more room left for it to fill. Get ready to rewrite the history books

  24. And the US just keeps climbing. Because our population is too fucking dumb to stay indoors and our companies too greedy to care about the lives of the people.

  25. Italy has the second oldest population in the world behind Japan. Their vulnerability should be of no surprise to anyone. Three years ago, nearly 30k people died in Italy because of the flu. Please stop the hysteria.

  26. You can only have so many new cases when there is a set population. It’s only slowing down because so many are already infected, this doesn’t really mean anything.

  27. Infection rates decrease when populations decrease.
