The shocking centre of the COVID-19 crisis

Sky News in the UK report on Italy, “The shocking centre of the Covid-19 crisis” in this sombre report:

The crisis gripping the town at the centre of the global COVID-19 crisis in Italy has been witnessed by Sky News’ Chief Correspondent Stuart Ramsay.

Italy has hit a grim milestone in its fight against the coronavirus pandemic, and authorities there want to send a warning to the rest of the world.

Italy has seen the number of cases and deaths growing rapidly, as the world looks on aghast – the country fully shut down more than a week ago, yet figures are not abating, yet, indicating the worst is yet to come for the country.

Several Italian hospitals, for example in Bergamo, are becoming overwhelmed by the sheer volume of coronavirus cases which require urgent care.
