How are things where you are at the moment Ben ?
I’m in the Campania region where there are only 1,700 cases compared to Lombardy, where there are 41,000 cases. Surprising owing to the size of Naples and how on top of each other everything is. However, there is a worry that the South is going to get hit a lot more over the coming weeks.

The latest is that in the poorer South, families are running out of money to buy food for their families. There are talks of organised raids on supermarkets for food and some Italians have said a revolution is coming. The authorities have been very strict here, the Campania governor has also stopped outdoor exercise. If the social unrest starts to be seen, things could get nasty.

In stark contrast to here, where we have the money but no available food to spend it on. Either way, it could lead to rioting/looting.

Why the hell would anyone want to go on holiday whilst the whole country is closed and in the middle of a global viral pandemic?! These people are clinically insane and need sectioning asap for the good of society.
Quite a few people have 2nd homes in nicer parts of the country and i guess they think it's better to isolate there rather than their city homes, Total idiots mind

Serves the T W A T right!!

Reported that someone spat at a nurse after the end of her shift as she was walking home.
It would be nice if these scumbags would just ‘disappear’ I doubt there would be too much of a hue & cry in these times.

Flights to be arranged for those Brits stranded abroad. No doubt some have genuine need but can't help thinking anyone who went on holiday up to a month ago should have seen this coming (as we all did) and should be left where they are. They should have had the common sense to not travel in the first place. Harsh but it was obvious weeks and weeks ago ago that foreign travel was shutting down yet some still wanted their holidays.
