    Exclamation HOT TOPIC: COVID: Society, Politics, Human Rights

    This thread is for the legal, societal and political aspects of COVID. Vaccines are in another STICKY in this forum. Please add to this thread or yours may be moved.

    An article in Scientific American touches on the factors that may account for the high death rate in Italy including the demographics of an older population, while the spread of the infection may be attributed to bad luck in experiencing the infection early before there was a high degree of awareness of the virus. But another critical piece of the puzzle of why Italy is particularly hard hit which isn’t discussed by the mainstream media is offered up by David Vance at AltNewsMedia:
    Many Italians in Northern Italy have sold their leather goods and textiles companies to China. Italy then allowed 100,000 Chinese workers from Wuhan and Wenzhou to move to Italy to work in these factories, with direct flights between Wuhan and Northern Italy. This continued post outbreak, so is it mere coincidence that Northern Italy is now Europe’s hotspot for Corona Virus?"

    I haven't heard a peep about this in the MSM.

    Isn’t it interesting that these former Republican Never Trumpers, whose alleged beef with us is that we abandoned true conservatism, are now full-throated fellow travelers with cultural and economic Marxist Democrats who are on a monomaniacal mission to destroy this country? -David Limbaugh

    Because the left never wants to put China in a bad light.

    Italy is a place where the elder Italians like to go back to the "home country " and spend their last days . I'm seeing it more and more in my wife's family and the elderly are leaving and going back to their birthplace and it's the elderly that are dying from this virus. The health system isn't the one of old, where we used to see a degree on our doctors wall here in the U.S. with the words University of Bologna on it . The demands of the EU have strained the health care system and the Italy of old was replaced with the open border concept . It's close to bankruptcy and the aged and medical system is feeling the pain . Italy is a tourist mecca and Italians are a touchy ,feely nationality - that combined with kissing and overly explosive verbel expressions that send droplets of the virus into the surrounding atmosphere is taking its toll .
    Plus they didn't realize what this was at first and thought it was the flu and treated it as such .
    Some have indicated cheap Chinese labor brought into maintain the fabric and leather fashion industry in Milan may be the culprit and won't directly say it to protect the nationality .
    All this is mute at the moment because the safeguards we used to use in the common sense days of having immigrants pass basic health test as on Ellis Island during the great immigration periods of the 30s,40s, and 50s is looked down upon by the social do gooders of the current times but this disease may be the left's downfall and there will be major changes in social attitudes and our tolerances in the coming months .
    We're PCing ourselves to death and are still too timid to take them on at the moment - thats going to change real quick.

    It's my opinion that the Covid-19 virus was being passed around in China as early as October and China did nothing to stop it. By shutting down air travel immediately and isolating the cruise ships Trump's actions has given us a chance to get in front of the pandemic. DJT's fast actions far surpass the incompetent actions Obama made during the Swine, SARS, MRSA, Zika, and Ebola threats to America.

    I knew there was a direct connection between Italy and China. Didn't realize it was Wuhan. And of course, Italy failed to close down travel with disastrous consequences.

    We are taking precautions here (stocking up, cutting down our trips out, etc.) not because of us but because of my step father. He's 88 & not in great health & a prime candidate to get something like this. I'm of course in the
    "danger" age group but I could really care less. I feel that if it's my time then it's my time. Besides I think that if I go to heaven (I "could" squeak in) there won't be any democrats there to talk to . You have to look at the bright side.

    The common factor in all of this is the Chinese and any one flying in from China . Was it let loose on purpose to create havoc or was it a virus developed for future war use on China's enemies .
    Someone is obviously working on some powerful ,destructive forces and they need to be called out for it . What else is in the test tubes that didn't get out ?
