Italy recorded their first cases of coronavirus in Rome on January 31st. 42 days later, their country is now under almost complete lockdown with only grocery stores and pharmacies allowed to operate. Their healthcare system is overwhelmed to the point of near collapse with the disease causing collateral damage beyond its victims according to several Italian doctors. The healthcare system in the U.S. is heading in a similar direction if the coronavirus continues spreading at its current pace.
