Coronavirus-in-Milan,-Italy

Oct 05, 2020 Update

We Asked: What is currently happening with regard to the Coronavirus outbreak in your area? Please provide as much detail as possible. He replied...

I seems that the virus is under control - only 2500 cases a day country wide. Store/bars all require masks and there is hand sanitizer everywhere. I feel fortunate that Italians take the virus seriously and abide by the rules.

How People are Coping

We Asked: How are people handling the situation in your area? He replied...

I had Covid in March, and my family of 4 safely separated and no-one else in my family got it. As an American, when I read the news in Italy versus the US, feel so fortunate to be here. My kids go to private school and their safety regulations make me feel they are safe. I did have coffee with Italian friends and they remain very worried.

We feel safer here than other countries. As an American, when I read the news in Italy versus the US, feel so fortunate to be here.
