The reports I hear from Italy are rather alarming and they are fearing hospitals will overrun. One of my mates is married to an Italian girl whose family resides in Italy so we have the insight in to reality there. Italy is said to be 3 weeks behind the U.K so things will get a lot worse. Appreciate you always want to bang that continuous drum of how terrible our government is but there are problems amounting in that country. The statement of they have learnt we have not is a ridiculous one. Maybe Italians are more responsible and adhere better to social distancing. A lot of people in the U.K, especially in the cities have a problem following guidance. It was a shame the major of Manchester did not highlight this as part of the reason for the lockdown of the city. Unfortunately though that would nt of helped him in the popularity stakes and done much for massaging his ego..
