Italy: The Real Reasons a Chinese Virus Is Ravaging a European People Written by Selwyn Duke

Italy is no stranger to Asia-born diseases. One of the Roman Empire's most famous emperors, Marcus Aurelius, likely died of smallpox, which came from Asia. But we may be surprised that in the age of modern medicine an advanced nation such as Italy could be ground zero for Wuhan virus mortality, with 427 people dying in one recent day alone. Yet connections with China, Italy's aged population, socialized medicine, and small personal space may explain the phenomenon.
While the PC thought police don't want the disease's Chinese origin mentioned, there's a simple reason why northern Italy is especially plagued by the Wuhan virus: Many Chinese work there.

Northern Italy has a robust fashion and garment industry, with major brands such as Gucci and Prada based in the region. And with "China offering one of the cheapest manufacturing options in the world, it came as little surprise that most of these fashion brands were working with China," the Times of India reported Thursday. "A large number of these Italian fashion and garment houses had outsourced their manufacturing to Chinese labour, specifically in Wuhan."

"Italy also has direct flights from Wuhan and reports suggest over 100,000 Chinese citizens were working in Italian factories," the Times continued. "Chinese made a slow and steady move into Italy and many Italian fashion firms are now owned by them as well. As per a news report, there are more than 300,000 Chinese and over 90% of them work in the Italian garment industry. As per reports, there are thousands of small companies that are active in exports. This region is also very interconnected as well." (Hat tip: American Thinker.)

Moreover, the Wuhan virus (WV) is like the flu in that it most seriously affects the elderly, and nearly 60 percent of Northern Italy's population "is aged 40 and over, of which about 23% is over 65 years of age. This puts nearly one-fourth of the population at grave risk," the Times also informs. Note here that the average age of those dying from the WV in Italy is 79.5.

This demographic phenomenon is due to Italy's low fertility rate, which in some parts of the nation dips below one child per woman (replacement level is 2.1). So, sadly, part of the reason Italy is experiencing great WV-caused death is that it is a dying nation (demographically).

Yet Italy's socialized medicine system may also be complicit. The nation lacks the healthcare resources to treat everyone, and its health commissars have prioritized tending to the young, say critics. In fact, an anesthetist at a Bergamo hospital admitted that if "someone between 80 and 95 has serious breathing difficulties, you probably don't proceed [with providing care]," reported The New American yesterday.

As TNA pointed out, this triage decision might be justifiable if the young and old were equally at risk. But given that "only 17 of those who have died have been under age 50," as TNA also wrote, and that all "Italian victims under age 40 have been persons with serious existing medical conditions" (who should also be prioritized), this is disgustingly immoral.

I thought it was because people like the mayor of Florence Italy were showing how non-racist their cities were by having people hug Chinese people.

Remember back in 2003 when almost 70,000 people died from a heat wave*.

*ETA - Died in Europe during a heatwave equal to a normal day in Florida, or any where down south.

Interesting. So this exposes Italy’s high end fashion world for the frauds they are.

Knowing they can charge more for the “made in Italy” label, they simply import cheap Chinese labor to keep costs down while maintaining the “made in Italy” label.

That high end Prada garnet you just paid $1,200 for was really made by cheap labor imported in from China.

My wife works for a very large Italian eyewear company. They have manufacturing plants in Italy, for the high brands, and in China, for the low end brands.

I wonder if they do this? I haven’t heard of any corporate changes in her company yet. However, like everyone else, their sales have cratered.

Makes one wonder what percentage of a Ferrari or Lamborghini is sourced from China...

There is also the fact that many Italians(at least where my daughter was in January) weren't exactly known to cover mouths during a sneeze or cough. So glad she was back in the U.S. prior to all this hitting(she came back Jan 20).
