#COVID19: The Lombardy region of Italy has recorded no daily coronavirus deaths for the first time in nine months

This part of Lombardy produces 55% of the world’s eye shadows, mascaras, face powder and lipsticks, according to an industry group

All of this is feeding through into a crisis in hospitals beyond what we’ve seen anywhere else in the world over the whole pandemic. ICUs are twice as full in Nagpur as they ever got in Lombardy last March. Mumbai’s ICU’s are more full than Liège was in Belgium’s brutal peak.

Having spent the day on the phone talking to local experts of various stripes, there are *many* very serious, knowledgeable people who fear this analysis is correct; NYC is headed for a Wuhan or Lombardy-style healthcare system crash.

A doctor in Turin, Italy says he wants to warn the world, "the only way to prevent a health care system collapse is to enforce a lockdown as soon as possible" and to "increase ICU capacity." He says Turin is probably 9-10 days behind Lombardy.

The head of the Lombardy's intensive care crisis unit says the health system is on the brink of collapse, intensive care being set up in hallways. By March 26 they predict ~18,000 #Covid19  cases in Lombardy, of which ~3,000 will need intensive care.

People haven't gotten their heads around the fact that NYC is going to be the Lombardy/Wuhan of the US. And maybe worse. It's about to get very dire. See the numbers below.

My God. Lombardy has more than 10 million people. Equivalent to preventing anyone from entering or leaving New York.
