>>113683544>what made it get so bad over there so fast?
Have you been to Rome? Even outside of peak tourist season the place is packed. It's hot, humid, perfect incubation weather for pathogens, and cruise ships are basically floating disease barges the moment they unload. Now combine that with a rampant gypsy problem who have very little concept of personal hygiene getting touchy with everyone, a government that can stay stable for more than a week is cause for surprise, and rampant corruption, its no surprise that the disease was able to spread as quickly as it did.> In my area it feels like everyone is still going out despite what the CDC recommends
Same here, but everyone is keeping a close eye on where the last cases were found in the state. They are close, but not close enough that it's time to close the proverbial gates. So people are still going out, stocking up, and generally doing what they can before it all shuts down.
