The first Italian who fell ill, 38-year-old Mattia from the city of Codogno in northern Lombardy, was discharged from the clinic, where he arrived on February 19. Due to the fact that he was not immediately given a coronavirus test, the man managed to infect several people, including relatives. As a result, Mattia’s father died, while the pregnant wife of a man who had a mild illness was discharged almost two weeks ago.
On March 11, the World Health Organization recognized the coronavirus epidemic as a pandemic. Today, more than 373 thousand people are infected in the world, more than 101 thousand have been cured, more than 16 thousand have died.
