    I think the elements you are talking about are just suppositions based on the limited experience you had in my country. You talked about personal greetings, buffets (they are not the norm), espresso, catholicism and so on. If what are you saying is right, then in the South should have been an explosion of infections. But it's not like that.
    We've just been unlucky and it's a lot more likely that tourism played a part, or simply work played a major part. Companies here, both big and small, have a lot of contacts with China. So all the things you said, considered the evolution of COVID in other countries, didn't help its spread.
    Probably we'll have more deaths because we have older people and smokers, but that's it.

    P.S. Anyway you talked of issues in your first comment, characteristics would have been a better word, less misunderstanding. Cheers, hope the spread in your country won't reach our level.

    Gotcha, the Chinese business connections make some more sense as far as the North is concerned. And you’re right, my observations would make the south a bigger breeding ground. A lot of finance, design, fashion, manufacturing and engineering connections in Milan, right? That’s what China has always been after in the west.

    I hope so too, stay well, stay safe!

    Also in my region, le Marche, which should be the fourth most infected. There is also another element to consider: universities. Immediatly after the lockdown, lots of people came down from the North to the South. I think the situation is going to be ugly when the infections of days ago will start to show up. Healthcare in the South is not even comparable to the North one, and North healthcare, although extremely good, has already partially collapsed.
    Stay safe too! :)

    Plus considering the tourism in that area in february. Not alone the big cities like Milan but there's the Alps with huge ski regions and other wintersports. Maybe that played a big part I don't know.

    2 Chronicles 7: (13) If I shut up the heavens so that there is no rain, or if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence among My people,
    (14) and My people who are called by My name humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, will forgive their sin and will heal their land.


    It’s crazy because isn’t there or wasn’t there recently a swarm of locusts so bad over in Africa or something? Like the worst they’ve seen in hundreds of years or something? Plus the crazy wildfires we had in California and Australia? We just had a string of minor earthquakes here in west Texas a few weeks ago and that HAS NEVER happened here before. It’s almost like this Bible stuff really is real and has warned us of this stuff. I seriously don’t mean to turn this into a religious thread and go crazy trying to evangelize all of you (but feel free to pm me if you’re interested) but I just saw this and it’s pretty interesting even for non believers if you ask me. Birth pains of the earth.

    Locust, fire en earthquakes aren't really that interesting to non-believers.

    I was playing blops this morning when we got hit by a 5.7 earthquake in utah. Craziest **** I've ever experienced. Still went 59-0 that game. As a non believer I will say it's interesting. Pretty coincidental but the revelations wouldn't be on such a ***** scale as this.

    Yeah, and Revelation isn't written as just a bunch of earthquakes. The first half is the rise of the antichrist, then war, then famine, then death, then the cry of the martyrs, which marks the halfway point of the 7 year period. Only then does cataclysmic judgement come, symbolized by the last 2 of the seven seals, then by 7 trumpets, then by seven bowls of wrath, and finally the return of Christ to end it. The believer must look for the antichrist to know for sure, and unfortunately for the unbeliever, he is explained to be so convincing that even the elect would be deceived if not for the spirits help.

    Until then, Christ says this to us

    They questioned Him, saying, “Teacher, when therefore will these things happen? And what will be the sign when these things are about to take place?” And He said, “See to it that you are not misled; for many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am He,’ and, ‘The time is near.’ Do not go after them. When you hear of wars and disturbances, do not be terrified; for these things must take place first, but the end does not follow immediately.”

    Then He continued by saying to them, “Nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be great earthquakes, and in various places plagues and famines; and there will be terrors and great signs from heaven. But before all these things, they will lay their hands on you and will persecute you, delivering you to the synagogues and prisons, bringing you before kings and governors for My name’s sake. It will lead to an opportunity for your testimony. So make up your minds not to prepare beforehand to defend yourselves; for I will give you utterance and wisdom which none of your opponents will be able to resist or refute. But you will be betrayed even by parents and brothers and relatives and friends, and they will put some of you to death, and you will be hated by all because of My name. Yet not a hair of your head will perish. By your endurance you will gain your lives.

    I've walked between the tectonic plates of America and Europe in Thingvellir national park, Iceland which both pop out of the earth's crust in two huge walls of rock. Pretty cool to literally stand between continents.
