JOURNAL OF MEDICAL VIROLOGY 19/03/20 A doubt of multiple introduction of SARS‐CoV‐2 in Italy: a preliminary overview. WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM 16/03/20 China is sending medical experts and supplies to help Italy fight coronavirus. Italy’s fight against coronavirus has received desperately needed doctors, supplies and equipment from China.
Soaring numbers of new coronavirus patients are putting the country’s health services under strain. Health officials have described the outbreak as a “race against time”. With Italy’s health system under severe pressure from the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, help is being flown in from China. Specialist doctors and medical equipment have landed in Italy ready to help tackle the sharp spike in people with the disease, which has overwhelmed medical facilities. The doctors bring with them first-hand experience of dealing with the coronavirus, having previously helped to tackle the original outbreak in China's Hubei province that killed more than 3,000 people. "Our doctors don't need anyone to teach them their job, but the Chinese doctors were the first [to treat the virus]and they can bring their experience," Italian Minister Luigi DI Maio told RAI television.
Written by. THE LANCET 13/03/20 COVID-19 and Italy: what next? Summary The spread of severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) has already taken on pandemic proportions, affecting over 100 countries in a matter of weeks.
A global response to prepare health systems worldwide is imperative. Although containment measures in China have reduced new cases by more than 90%, this reduction is not the case elsewhere, and Italy has been particularly affected. There is now grave concern regarding the Italian national health system's capacity to effectively respond to the needs of patients who are infected and require intensive care for SARS-CoV-2 pneumonia. The percentage of patients in intensive care reported daily in Italy between March 1 and March 11, 2020, has consistently been between 9% and 11% of patients who are actively infected. Introduction Callaway E Time to use the p-word? Nature. 2020; 579: 12 Therefore, a coordinated global response is desperately needed to prepare health systems to meet this unprecedented challenge.

LE MONDE 26/03/20 En Italie, le coronavirus circulait dès le 1er janvier. Devant la peste médiévale, le conseil efficace était de «partir tôt, loin et de revenir tard».
Le premier terme du trio – « tôt » vient de recevoir une forte confirmation pour le COVID-19, la maladie provoquée par le coronavirus ARS-CoV-2. Non pour partir, bien sûr, mais pour prendre des mesures contre la propagation du virus par contacts humains. Cette idée ressort d’une publication, pour l’instant disponible sur un site de pré-publication avant revue par les pairs, d’une équipe de médecins italiens. Elle vient confirmer que les pays qui ont pris le plus tôt les mesures de restriction des contacts physiques et des voyages ont eu raison car le virus est arrivé bien plus vite hors de Chine que ce que l’on pensait jusqu’à présent (Lire aussi : Comment la Chine a stoppé le coronavirus ).

IZSLER_IT 10/03/20 IZSLER Disposizioni contro il coronavirus versione testuale. IT_WIKIPEDIA – COVID-19. Una persona infetta può presentare sintomi dopo un periodo di incubazione che può variare tra 2 e 14 giorni circa (raramente ci sono stati casi di 29 giorni), durante i quali può comunque essere contagiosa. Per limitarne la trasmissione devono essere prese precauzioni, come adottare un'accurata igiene personale, lavarsi frequentemente le mani e indossare mascherine. Coloro che ritengono di essere infetti devono rimanere in quarantena, indossare una mascherina chirurgica e chiamare immediatamente un medico al fine di ricevere appropriate indicazioni. Il coronavirus colpisce principalmente il tratto respiratorio inferiore e provoca una serie di sintomi descritti come simil-influenzali, tra cui febbre, tosse, respiro corto, dolore ai muscoli, stanchezza e disturbi gastrointestinali quali la diarrea; nei casi più gravi può verificarsi una polmonite, una sindrome da distress respiratorio acuto, sepsi e shock settico, fino ad arrivare al decesso del paziente.
Eziologia. FAPESP_BR 01/04/20 54.8% of COVID-19 cases imported to Brazil by March 5 came from Italy. In contrast with China and other countries where the disease spread slowly, in Brazil more than 300 people started the epidemic.
Most were passengers flying in from Italy (image: Wikimedia Commons) April 01, 2020 By Elton Alisson | Agência FAPESP – Italy was the main origin of the individuals who first brought the novel coronavirus to Brazil, according to a study by Brazilian researchers in collaboration with colleagues in the United Kingdom, Canada and the United States. The COVID-19 pandemic arrived in Brazil between February and early March. “In contrast with China and other countries, where the outbreak began slowly with a small number of cases, it was started in Brazil by more than 300 people, most of whom came from Italy. The study was supported by FAPESP under the aegis of the Brazil-UK Center for Arbovirus Discovery, Diagnosis, Genomics and Epidemiology (CADDE).
