How the corona shutdown affected air quality in some of the most polluted cities in the world. I am particularly surprised by the image for Milan. I didnt realize the air quality in Lombardy was this bad. Can it really be worse than Delhi? Scale issues?

@MichaelRosenYes  If we had known each other I would have been warning from late Feb. Told all my elderly family & friends to reduce contact from then. We had already seen Wuhan, Diamond Princess & Lombardy.

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.
