Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The numbers are certainly weird all around.

In this interview Annibale makes the point that the ridiculously high death rate in Italy is concentrated in the Lombardy. Not in Piedmont and Veneto with around 3% and neither in the much poorer Sicily and Sardinia. And while he has no explanation he mentions that Lombardy is a much more friendly environment for private health insurance, which might have led to people getting treatment too late.
I'm also pretty livid that I get this from an American podcast, while our state TV goes to their London correspondent for news on the health of the royal spawn.
