From the Trenches, Pt. 4: An Italian Perspective on the Fight to Contain COVID-19, Continued
Dear readers, this week from the Italian trenches, I have only some brief news to share:
- The government has imposed mandatory masks for each personal movement;
- Some families are experiencing tensions, after almost 50 days of forced coexistence;
- Europe is becoming increasingly divided and Italy’s central government seems increasingly ‘unsuitable’ in facing this crisis.
Primarily today, I share with you the above video (subtitled in English). It is a dramatic and realistic view of what it is like, living and working in a Covid-19 hospital. It was shared with me by a friend who is working at this hospiral, the Policlinico in Milan. I hope it will show how important it is to follow your Government’s suggestions and orders.
I remain in solidarity with you, in prayer and in hope of Easter, and will write again soon.
