The reason Italy is in such bad shape?

1: Second oldest population on earth

2: 5 1/2 times the population density of the US

3: 12% higher smoking rate that the US

4: extensive use of public transit (trains)

5: Very high percentage of people living in apartments, and not single family homes.

6: Large percentage of citizens that only bathe once or twice a week.

I'm sorry but what. I know Europeans have a reputation for this but I assure you that the majority of them bathe on a regular basis. Also, how frequently they bathe most likely has no bearing on this situation.

Jim Cramer is Jewish, so I feel pretty confident he wasn't referring to Nazi Germany. He's talking about putting a sticker on people before air travel, after they have tested negative. Apparently there are countries doing that, of course, first you would need a lot of tests, which we don't have.  Obviously, he chose his words on live TV poorly, but it's not the same thing at all.

 

Trump is the one who turned down tests from the WHO, which is directly related to the fact that parts of the country are in lock down versus following the South Korea model ( I won't cite China because God alone knows what's really happening there). You bet I blame him for the confusion and delay. If we had been able to test 6 weeks ago we wouldn't be where we are right now, imo.

It's because your hands come into contact with the virus, and you are constantly touching other parts of your body. A little itch, you adjust your clothing, etc. It's not everyone who bathes less frequently, just a larger percentage. It's simply a cultural difference, like women not shaving their armpits.

Don't pay that racist troll any mind.

Stephen Miller is Jewish, too.  But, that doesn't stop him from wanting to shut down the borders to everyone who isn't white.

And it won't be for the reasons Maggie Haberman, eternal shill, gives. It's down to boy wonder (what a surprise Maggie wouldn't mention the Kushners).

I'm afraid it's going to get worse, as we're going to hear and read more and more stories about people who injure themselves (or worse) trying crackpot coronavirus remedies.

I don't see the connection. Marking people safe to get on an airplane is hardly the same as making people wear a star and putting them in cattle cars to concentration camps.  Why wouldn't we want to test people before putting them in a highly contagious situation? It's apples and oranges to say the least.

Kirstie Alley has traded one cult for another. Neither of them will change that she hasn't been relevant since Zack Morris was still in acid wash.

It's partly the fault of the stores for not putting limits on purchases. Grocery store here does that, and everything has been going quite well.

Excuse me, what? Didn't know that such stereotypes still exist... You know, people have running water and electricity in Europe these days... 

 

Lombardia, the most affected region, is Italy's economic center. The people there are wealthy (it is the wealthiest non-capital city in the European Union) and living there is expensive, especially in Milan, the country's fashion capital.
