Italian Virologist: Italy Thought of Isolating People Coming From China, but 'It Became Seen as Racist'—Killing Thousands


The webpage Voice of Europe has this headline: Italy: Virologist says fears of racism slowed Italy’s coronavirus response; Florence Mayor urged Italians to “hug a Chinese”.

They're getting that from a CNN report which is headlined Italian doctors hope for a sign the coronavirus lockdown is working, because there's no plan B. 

You can see that CNN ("Voice of Globalism") doesn't want any interesting facts to get as far as the headline, but what this says is shocking: it says that fear of racism led to the deaths of thousands in Italy.

An interview with Italian virologist Dr. Giorgio Palù, former president of the European and Italian Society for Virology, quotes Palù as saying

"the Italian government lagged at first. It was ‘lazy in the beginning... too much politics in Italy.’

‘There was a proposal to isolate people coming from the epicenter, coming from China,’ he said. ‘Then it became seen as racist, but they were people coming from the outbreak.’ That, he said, led to the current devastating situation.”

That's more than the ban on racial profiling killed on 9/11.

Tuohey was working the U.S. Airways first-class check-in desk when two men, Atta and his companion Abdul Azziz-Alomari, approached his counter. From all outward appearances, the men seemed to be normal businessmen, but Tuohey felt something was wrong.

“I got an instant chill when I looked at [Atta]. I got this grip in my stomach and then, of course, I gave myself a political correct slap…I thought, ‘My God, Michael, these are just a couple of Arab businessmen.’”[Oprah Winfrey, I Was The One, September 12, 2005]

When I wrote“Civil Rights Law Doesn't Care If You Die” in 2008, about the many ways that anti-discrimination laws make people unsafe (taxi drivers, store owners, home buyers, etc.) 9/11 was the largest individual death toll. This will dwarf it.
