According to the latest data released by the Italian Ministry of Health at 18:00 on March 19th local time, the total number of people diagnosed with COVID-19 in Italy was 41,035 cases, an increase of 5,322 cases and 3,405 deaths from 18:00 on March 18th.
According to the number of deaths 3405, the death rate of Italian new crown pneumonia rose to 8.29%. The number of deaths has exceeded the 3245 Chinese new crown pneumonia deaths counted by the Chinese National Health and Medical Commission on the 18th. It is the country with the highest number of deaths.
Why is the mortality rate of the COVID-19 so high in Italy?
First of all, the “framework” for Italian epidemic prevention was in place early, but the “substantive content” was lacking. In the early days, the "city closure" mainly relied on local governments and police forces. However, the local government's understanding of the importance of epidemic prevention was uneven. The police were mostly locals. The citizens were unwilling to wipe their faces to "strictly guard against death." , The blockade line is full of loopholes.
Secondly, in Italy, from the professional level to the social customs, there are different levels of resistance to the severe "cities closure" and other strict epidemic prevention measures.
Then the status of the medical system is quite urgent. Although Italy is a typical welfare country in Europe and has a well-developed medical system, since the 2008 financial crisis, in order to complement the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the European Union’s rescue plan, the country has continuously cut public expenditures, including health care inputs. As a result, the health care system is in a state of tension even under normal conditions.
Finally, the aging troubles. Italy is second only to Japan in the world and has the most prominent aging problem.
In this case, China was the first foreign country to assist Italy, and it was a "very high-standard" aid. At 22:31 on March 12 (5:31 on the 13th of Beijing time), after more than ten hours of flight, a group of 9 experts dispatched by the Chinese government and organized by the National Health and Health Commission and the Chinese Red Cross carried a large number of medical staff. The materials flew from Shanghai to Rome's Fiumicino Airport to support the prevention and control of Italy's new crown pneumonia epidemic.
