Does Italy have really bad doctors?

How do you have a death rate over 10%? Even if the average age is 70, it should be well below that

    They have superb doctors and healthcare system in the world. The government has done everything man can do efficiently so far. But the EU is wrong. It is still fighting against each other without any solidarity mind set. Comparing to NY, Trump has supported it strongly without any doubt. That is why we can win soon.

    We're seeing how slight differences in social culture and infrastructure of healthcare can be a very dramatic difference in things.

    I think they will adapt... but it is a tall order.

    I read that today they saw a decline for the first time since all this started.

    The high death rate is attributed to areas of high population density, not the quality of health care.  The virus spreads from person to person.

    I do not think that the death rate in Italy are doctors faults. I think more blame than the drs. has to belong to the government of Italy. They did not close their doors soon enough to travel and life itself. Once you close the doors, though, that actually made things worse. You have to look at the family structure of the people of Italy. You have homes with a mother, father, grown children, grandparents and maybe even more all living in the same place. Italy may not have all of the technology in their hospitals that is in The US, but we can all see that age is a huge factor in death rates everywhere. The whole medical system over there has been totally overwhelmed, so lets not jump to conclusions about the abilities of their doctors. They had to go through extensive education and training, too.

    We don't know yet and have asked ourselves the same question.  Is it bad data (they have a lot more cases than they know of?), is the strain of COVID-19 there different in some way?  Most countries have no real way of knowing how many people have or have had the virus as there is a huge backlog in testing.

    No, they just don't have enough doctors.  Italy didn't implement mitigation tactics early enough in the process, so the virus created more cases than the hospitals could deal with.  The number of cases they'd normally get in a year they're getting in a month or less.

    They delayed restricting travel and social distancing, basically they got hit hard and fast and didn't have enough time to react effectively. This created the health care, the areas hit to become overwhelmed in a very short period of time. Unlike us, who had a month trying to figure things out thanks to the travel bans Trump put in place. If the left had allowed al of them he wanted to be put in, we might have had more time.

    It has infected 1.5 million with 65,000 deaths in the world. I consider that Turin, Italy has the House of Satan where it is said Satan dwells. Satanists are increasing.

    The health system was overloaded. People who would have gotten care that might have kept them alive - as reflected in the lower mortality rate seen in other places - weren't getting it.

    There's another factor as well. The 'numbers' being put out there about mortality rates by age group were based on China's numbers - which we all know now were not accurate.
