Maybe i were wrong first when i mentioned the messy blonde guy of UK, but i think that was quite distant from politics, much more closer to think about UK people as european people, brexit or not.
In a couple of days more activities will be shut down, for increasing the people isolation. Also last evening a new act tells people to do not leave its municipality where they are, unless the short list of allowed activities/job or serious health problem.
Most of the job allowed are related to food production and distribution (from field to the store), waste management, power production and distribution, TLC, transportation, fleet management and repairs. Long story short: keep the machine running, from hospitals to supermarkets.
Many people has been stupid during the last 14 days.
A guy changed municipality only to meet friends and hangout for six consecutive days. He’s banned from to that municipality for the next year.
A lot of people ran from northern italy to the south where the family (parents and grands) are living, trying to excape contagion. Most of them won’t announciate to destination for self containment, few of them has been caught on motorways.
Until few days ago, no cafeteria were open, except along motorways. Several people, for having breakfast “the usual way” took motorways (most are toll payed) only to go into the cafe and have some cappuccino, espresso and pastry. Now even motorway cafeteria are opened only for take away.
30 people of the same block took a barbecue on the rooftop of their building. 10 of them were fined and charged, some want to beat up the people who signaled them to the cops.
It has been a lot of people being stupid. Which is a lot less of will work today (most from home, but not all), struggling with rules, trying to not be stupid enough to being infected or create some unnecessary mess.
Last data says about 47k ill persons (verified and registered), little more than 7k healed. Lots of people are assuming that the same amount of registered sick people is still sick but untested and unregistered.
I would like to remember that is only a small part of people living in italy, which are about 60M. And believe me… they have to do something after Covid-19
