I live closeby Bergamo.
Everyone believes, as far as I know, that most countries reacted slow and did the same mistakes we did.
If everyone would have just taken this seriously, many lives would have been and would be saved in the future.
However, governments chose to keep the countries open as long as possible to not have more severe economical repercussions.
At this stage most Italians are really focused themselves, except the brief mention of cases in other countries in the main stream media.
Stay safe. 🙏
