well you would have to know how many average deaths there are in itally every year for statistec to mean much.

italy has the most elderly population in the eu and the highest number of smokers.

and test are giving out false postives its afair bet a lot of those people dident die of the virus.

Coronavirus first emerged in the 1960's as MERS- CoV to which there was no cure and not even a vaccine because nobody knew how to treat it or what it was, but it didn't kill as many back then, so this virus isn't a new one. A risk assessment of MERS was given in August of last year----symptoms the same as Coronavirus. I have to ask myself if this virus now was expected as I'd reckoned on it having been present in at least November last year and very possibly September so plenty of time for it to have incubated from person to person unknowingly.

Interesting video which I've been saying all along regarding seasonal 'flu. When we suffered the beast from the East there were over 500,000 deaths in this country but there was no lockdown or urgent messages given out.

Not sure what is going on but the UK has a experienced roughly a tenfold decrease in new deaths, over the last 24 hours, compared with the prev 24 hours. It has gone from having the fifth highest rate of new deaths to the 19th highest rate of new deaths.

The site I use has not updated properly, so there is no good news on new deaths in UK! The new deaths rate per 24 hours is still rising. Apologies for misinformation.
