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.
