I don't mind him. Italy is or rather was a popular tourist destination. The majority of our imported cases of COVID-19 came from Italy
If you look at a map of Covid hot spots, they are all countries where the majority of the population can afford to fly off to other exotic destinations where Covid is rife.
Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic, Slovakia etc., etc., have fewer cases.
Oh, and developed Catholic countries where larger families result seem also at greater risk.

Many of the countries you mention closed their borders quite fast. I have been thinking about the political consequences of the COVID-19. It might be the end of EU. EU countries are supposed to assist each other in an emergency, it didn't work well. Italy asked for help, but didn't get any from other EU countries. EU might return to what it was a long time ago. An economic and a trade union

They have been cooperating... French and Italian victims have been treated in othe EU countries less afflicted... and whose health care systems are not under so much pressure.
Mind you some of that may be to do with private health care companies!

Yes, they are sending patients to other countries, but they didn't get any protective gear, ventilators, and health care professionals when they asked for it. They got that help from China, Cuba, Russia, and NGO's

Btw, why are you giving your health care professionals the claps?
