It’s like a repeat of March:
#Italy continues to worsen.
136 new deaths. Over 9% positive rate.
Hospital and ICU beds filling quickly.
Cases doubling every 7-8 days.
They are one among MANY European nations with worsening outbreaks.
Lockdowns become unavoidable after a certain point. https://t.co/lo3a7uomLF
