A normal price in Italy (so, before emergency) for a single FFP3 mask was nearly 5 euro. They were typically sold on multiple packs, so you could pay more or less 50 euros for 10 masks. FFP2 were paid half, while surgery ones are really cheap, (10s of cents for a single mask)
Because luckily not everyone living in South Italy is stupid, plus limitations were immediately started to be respected in a lot of places through the whole country, so in South we had time to get prepared. Plus, and I am speaking for my region, the treatment with tocilizumab helped in making a faster exchange on intensive care patients. This is particularly important because each day you can retard saturation of intensive care, is a week less of lasting of the spreading
Mainly three factors should be considered: 1) especially in Lombardy, a lot of people kept on reuniting and considering the jobs marked as essentials, in practice nearly half of the people living there kept a "normal life" -> go to job, stay in close contact etc; 2) it seems like, especially in Lombardy which is responsible for 2/3 of daily cases, that there's something wrong in the hospitals, I mean: it seems like that it is spreading through the hospitals, as it started in practice; 3) as I wrote before on the forum, on 9th March restrictions started to happen and in that day (and the next weekend) a lot of people travelled from the North to the South of Italy. Considering a median value of incubation time of 14 days, plus 3-4 days for relatively severe symptoms to appear, you reach more or less 26th March and I already wrote that the end of this week will make a very important point. Consider, in addition, that a lot of people making this travel were not exactly really smart, so some of them kept on going for shopping, pharmacies and it was estimated that 15% of people moving could have potentially had at least 1 symptom.
yes, press conference confirmed this, together with nearly 500 recovered and a total increase of slightly less than 6000 new cases, in low decrease in comparison to yesterday. 2/3 of deaths located in Lombardy alone, with a reported number of +120 patients in intensive care in the whole country, rising in almost all Italy with exception of Campania, Trentino, Sudtirol Sardinia and Marche (this one being significantly important, considering that it has a high ratio of cases to population)
I mean: you could focus on writing “historical reviews”, for example day by day or sport by sport, just to keep trained
I remember you are a reporter/journalist. What is a journalist without an historic archive and the chance of make advantage of it?
antimalarial drugs have a lot of side effects, some of them fatal, and should be taken only in case of malaria, obviously. Or, at least, under medical control. If any of you believes that any antimalarial drug may be beneficial to his/her own health, please drink tonic water and stay away from pills.
Today slightly more than 1000 recovered, but still nearly 700 deaths, with 5200 new cases. However, these data are better than those of yesterday. I was also giving a look at the number of patients recovered in intensive care, it seems that apart from Lombardy we can still take care of it, although with very very much fatigue. In addition to this, I gave a special look to data in Campania, my region: -58 person in intensive care, although today 18 new deaths were registered. As the Cotugno and Pascale hospitals in Naples were the first in Italy to test the tocilizumab drug, this MAY, (let me underline that it MAY), indicate that this drug can attenuate symptoms and give more time to the body to fight the virus.
The numbers are important especially as far they concern patients being recovered in hospitals, because if they start diminish, than the virus spread is losing strength. Two good points, however, do not make a trend. Once we reach 5 points, we could start thinking that we are on the right way. If by the end of the week numbers will not dramatically increase in South Italy, (meaning that we will have numbers as in the last weekend but evenly spread on the whole country instead that focused in Lombardia), in that case things will be on the right track
