Must Read: American Woman Living In Italy Writes Down A Dire Warning To Americans

Steven Ahle| OPINION| An American woman living in Italy has written a warning letter to the world explaining what is happening in that country and what could happen in others.

The (DTMNBN) Disease That Must Not Be Named is spreading like wildfire throughout Italy, and it is feared the same will happen in France, Germany, and Great Britain, and some say the United States, although there are reasons to believe it won’t.

Europe has no borders. They allow free movement from every country in the world.

The United States is bucking that system. We are not accepting visitors from Europe at the present time, although we do allow Americans to come home, where they are screened and quarantined.

In non-European countries with a high rate of DTMNBN, we also have banned them from entering the country.

Italy went from having just under 40 cases to 10,000 cases in just two weeks. That was a mighty quick spreading of the virus.

But remember, in Italy, it’s fashionable to hug your relatives, neighbors, and friends along with a kiss on the cheek. It greatly increases the odds of the disease spreading.

In Christina Higgins’ warning letter, she claims that people are being lined up in the hallways but the medical people in Italy say that so far they are able to provide ICU services to every one who needs them.

They do, however, admit if things get worse that may no longer be the case.

To combat the disease, the country is now on a 14-day lockdown with hopes that will at least slow the spread of the virus. They are closing most businesses with exceptions made for grocery stores and other essential services. People are prisoners to their homes and should not even allow visitors for they could be carrying the disease.

And don’t let politicians like Bernie Sanders and other leftist Democrats fool you. Socialized medicine is not the answer. Italy has socialized medicine …

Here is the transcript of her letter:

‘I am writing to you from Bergamo, Italy, at the heart of the coronavirus crisis. The news media in the US has not captured the severity of what is happening here. I am writing this post because each of you, today, not the government, not the school district, not the mayor, each individual citizen has the chance, today to take actions that will deter the Italian situation from becoming your own country’s reality. The only way to stop this virus is to limit contagion. And the only way to limit contagion is for millions of people to change their behavior today.

If you are in Europe or the US you are weeks away from where we are today in Italy.

I can hear you now. “It’s just a flu. It only affects old people with preconditions”

There are 2 reasons why Coronavirus has brought Italy to it’s knees. First it is a flu is devastating when people get really sick they need weeks of ICU – and, second, because of how fast and effectively it spreads. There is 2 week incubation period and many who have it never show symptoms.

When Prime Minister Conte announced last night that the entire country, 60 million people, would go on lock down, the line that struck me most was “there is no more time.” Because to be clear, this national lock down, is a hail mary. What he means is that if the numbers of contagion do not start to go down, the system, Italy, will collapse.

Why? Today the ICUs in Lombardy are at capacity – more than capacity. They have begun to put ICU units in the hallways. If the numbers do not go down, the growth rate of contagion tells us that there will be thousands of people who in a matter of a week? two weeks? who will need care. What will happen when there are 100, or a 1000 people who need the hospital and only a few ICU places left?

On Monday a doctor wrote in the paper that they have begun to have to decide who lives and who dies when the patients show up in the emergency room, like what is done in war. This will only get worse.

There are a finite number of drs, nurses, medical staff and they are getting the virus. They have also been working non-stop, non-stop for days and days. What happens when the drs, nurses and medical staff are simply not able to care for the patients, when they are not there?

And finally for those who say that this is just something that happens to old people, starting yesterday the hospitals are reporting that younger and younger patients – 40, 45, 18, are coming in for treatment.

You have a chance to make a difference and stop the spread in your country. Push for the entire office to work at home today, cancel birthday parties, and other gatherings, stay home as much as you can. If you have a fever, any fever, stay home. Push for school closures, now. Anything you can do to stop the spread, because it is spreading in your communities – there is a two week incubation period – and if you do these things now you can buy your medical system time.

And for those who say it is not possible to close the schools, and do all these other things, locking down Italy was beyond anyone’s imagination a week ago.

Soon you will not have a choice, so do what you can now.

Please share.’
