    Poor healthcare, elderly, and because everyone lives together. As soon as one family member gets it they pass it on to their entire family that lives in a single building.

      Yes, I lived in Pisa for a few years and helath care there was, once you got past the unkempt hospital exteriors in some cases, quite good. I dealt with cardiologists, ENT's, EMT's, etc. Some really good people.

    a) there are many Chinese tourists in Italy

    b) many businesses in Italy are Chinese-owned

    c) people entering Italy from China (or other countries) were not screened/quarantined upon arrival

    I live in Italy and I can tell you the reasons why my country is the worst hit by coronavirus and many people are currently dying due to it.

    Two weeks ago the government chose to impose a national quarantine to reduce the risk of being infected and to reduce the spread of the virus in Italy.

    So, all the public events were banned, schools and universities were closed and going out is allowed even for necessaries. 

    Unfortunately, several people couldn't accept to stay at home for a whole month, avoiding contacts with relatives and friends so they carry on going out or meet with people anyway. Lots of people got also arrested for this reason.

    Moreover, the government imposed the lockdown too late, in fact until that day all the restaurants, bars, pubs and shops were open and that allowed the spread of the virus.

    Other reasons are the elderly and the poor healthcare in some regions, expecially in the South of Italy.

    COVID-19 (Chinese virus is improper).  

    Because Italy was too slow to implement severe social distancing. By the time they shut down the whole country, it was too late. 

    The virus spreads more quickly than most people were prepared to understand.  Its threat was downplayed. 

    The lesson is that countries need to "over" react early.  It's better to be too cautious early, than risk people dying.

    There is no "the chinese virus". The people dying in Italy are victims of pneumonia, caused by a coronavirus called covid-19. it spread there *fast* because the Italians have a culture with a lot of touching eachother

    Don't worry, covid-19 is coming to your village too. Just give it a few weeks or months. Reducing your contact with other people can slow down the spread and prevent a lot of inconveniences

    Another part is that they have a LOT of cases and the medical system is overwhelmed trying to treat the portion of the infected who develop respiratory issues.

    The median age in Italy is 45.5 contrasted to America's 38.1.
