16 cases of local transmission in Italy

In addition to the 6 from the previous post, 10 more confirmed cases, including 5 healthcare workers.

Another 250 people who had contact with the 38-year-old were put in solitary confinement.

Ate least Italy is doing something, in the United States no one would have been tested because our test kits don’t work. I think that people will remember that while this crisis is brewing, Trump is going to campaign rallies and saying stupid stuff about who won the Academy Award for Best Picture. When it’s all over, it’s not going to look very good for Trump.

  1. According to genetic Ace II tables tweet in twitter Italians are some of the least likely to suffer from the virus.

    • Everyone smokes in Italy.

    • Yeah, unfortunately it looks more and more like Lion was right and that Whites are at best only slightly less susceptible to the virus, at worst equally susceptible or even worse. The serious cases in Italy are not encouraging, nor the fact that two more elderly people (68 and 77 years) in Veneto (near Padua) were found to be infected, of which one is in a serious condition:

      Since there are a lot of Romanian workers in Italy (especially in the Veneto region), I fully expect the virus to be brought into Romania soon too, especially as all of our politicians in Bucharest are totally incompetent and are not taking this seriously (no flights cancelled, no borders closed, and none will be until it hits the fan).

      • So Canada doesn’t a monopoly on totally incompetent politicians? People can still fly here from China (although I think Canadian-owned airlines have cancelled flights). There’s a border but people who fear being being deported by Trump can wander across unmolested.

  2. I heard some of initial kits didn’t work. Please tell this has been fixed! This a #1 priority. Trump ignores it at his own peril.
