Ok I’m going to do this nice and slowly so you understand. Are you ready to be schooled? Pens out.
Italy has a huge elderly population and the some of the worst air pollution in Europe.
An average of 25% of the population are prevalent smokers too. So a combination of older population, air pollution and years of lung damage could easily have caused more deaths than other countries, not to mention the large amount of Chinese workers that died initially in the North.
There is also a large percentage of the population that have 3 or more generations living in the same house. So elderly people living with younger ones thy could easily pass on COVID, especially children who seem to carry and pass it on without being affected by it.
There’s also been a very mild winter - unusually warm weather kills less elderly people than usual. So those that survived could easily have died of COVID later.
Translate and read if you so wish:
So what happened when the deaths started? Most of the Eastern European nurses who worked in care fled back home as talks of lockdown and border closures began. So there was a distinct lack of carers. This caused overloading in hospitals.
And also as Italy closed all its schools early, most parents were either leaving their kids with elderly relatives (potentially passing on the virus) or taking time off work, including doctors and nurses.
There is no hard evidence that locking down the population helps in any way, shape or form.
One day the truth will out.
