    Why would they announce that they're shutting down the trains, allowing people to leave and spread the virus? They did the same thing with Wuhan and millions of people escaped and managed to spread it. It seems to kind of defeat the purpose.

    Dear Media, the main problem is in the North of Italy not the entire peninsula!
    Most people are taking the right precautions and trying to stay at home…
    In Italy they are also working on having soon a vaccine, possibly by early summer.

    Sad part is you have country's trying there absolute best to get the virus under control and yet U.S. says there testing but even the Dr's and hospitals saying there still waiting on test kits. Soon there will be other country's banning the U.S. because they do to not wanting the virus to explode again in there county.

    Death Ratio = 3994/(3994+62494)=3994/66484=6%.

    The numbers of the epidemic in Italy (9 March): 9,172 cases and 463 deaths. We need help because the situation is very serious, but nobody in Europe is really helping us. Only China has sent thousands and thousands of masks despite their serious situation. I would like to thank the Chinese government and the Chinese people who are experiencing suffering like the Italian one.

    Release the recovered, only to have them spread it around once the virus comes back. Stop telling us about spread. Everyone is going to get, that's just math and inevitable. FOCUS on those darn scientists who are developing a cure!

    I am South Korean. What we care firstly is wearing mask, especially inplace or places where are crowded. Wearing kf80 or kf94 mask will be much more helpful. I hope this catastrophy disappears as soon as possible.

  • Reply Devon Kryptonite March 9, 2020 at 9:17 pm

    Wear mask even if you dont have the symptoms. It gives you a protection. Dont believe in western doctors that it isnt useful if youre not sick. That is why East Asian countries began to recover. China has already a declining cases. South Korea new confirmed cases is declining too and has more lower death rate. Italy now outranked Korea in number of cases. Wear mask when you go outside stubborn westerners.

    S.KOREA ONLY 51 deaths !! for 7382 cases. with No quarantine around the hotspot city..Daegu at all. . now the number of new cases starts steeply drop in s.k… while . Italy 463 deaths !!! for 9172 cases even with massive quarantine like China and still the death and the case number keep going up… why is this difference??? the key is how fast and vast and big you could put the aggressive screening test into effect in all areas affected by the virus…. More test will skyrocket the number of the cases like you saw in S.korea and putting your country into bad public image, causing your country into travel ban. That is a short term down side of very aggressive screening test. But But you will be able to identify the potential spreader of the virus faster and put them into isolate earlier and dispatching the sick into hospital way earlier before they are too late to cure…it is the way you could save lives!!… Adopt S.KOREAN medical screening test like Drive through screen test booth like Starbucks which takes only 10 minutes preventing people from visiting hospital and getting another infection spread or infected more there.

    Continue wearing a mask!! The US is so irresponsible saying mask wont be helpful so dont use it. Baloney! Listen to your instinct.

    I am Italian and I am proud of what my country is doing. the Italian government and people are facing the problem head-on. instead many countries of the world hide the "real numbers" of infected people. after many years the Italian parties are collaborating with each other, as well as the citizens. but the European Union? where is it? (sorry for any translation errors)

    Our worthless politicians should be TEMPORARILY shutting down ALL schools in the the US. They tell people not to go to large gatherings, yet schools are some of the largest DAILY gatherings, also known as petridishes. Then they say don't worry, just wash your hands. Obviously these politicians don't know kids, because they don't wash their hands constantly throughout the day. Then they say, "Don't go into work if you are sick." These politicians definitely don't remember school, because kids are always being shipped off to school with runny noses and hacking coughs. This is a joke and a travesty that schools are still running business as usual. Don't tell me this is the FLU. This is not the regular FLU! This is the FLU on STEROIDS. The average flu has a death rate of 0.1%. A harsh flu season may have a 0.5% death rate. The Virus that is in Italy has a 5% death rate. They have a little over 9,000 cases today, March 9, and more than 450 deaths. DO THE MATH!! That is 5%!! Now don't tell me that they aren't counting all of the people that have contracted the virus, because when they calculate the death rate for the flu they don't count all of the mild cases that aren't reported either. The common flu has a death rate of 0.1%, and this virus has a death rate of 2-5%. We don't even know how deadly it is or isn't!! China wouldn't shut down many of their most profitable cities over the FLU!!! What ever happened to taking PRECAUTIONS?!?! I'm not saying we should close all businesses and quarantine everyone, but just to take basic steps to slow down the spread of this Pandemic!!!

  • Reply kim evan March 10, 2020 at 2:41 am

    Only Korea is transparent and do quick examination. It looks significant than the other countries, However, it is not. Look at the death ratio. it's 1/10 compared to Italy with almost the same amount number of confirmed people. I am guessing Italy has at least more than 3 times more people who got infected. I mean, not only Korea but also the other countries are in danger. Be careful everyone, don't believe the number. It should be more than that. Japan is good at hiding the number. And China started insisting the virus came from South Korea and less confirmed people in the country.
