‘How Italy succumbed to coronavirus.’ My article published by @spikedonline, before the irrational US government raised the risk level for travel to the Italian Veneto & Lombardy regions to level 4

This article was published on 27 February 2020. So it was published before the irrational response to  the coronavirus by the US government, which raised the travel risk level to Italy to level 3 late on 28 February 2020, then to level 4 for the Veneto and Lombardy regions on 29 February.

How Italy succumbed to coronavirus

I also discussed the risk-averse response of the Italian government to the coronavirus problem on Sky News in the interview in the link below on 24 February 2020:

As my previous blog post argued, the responses of the Italian and US governments are completely out of proportion to the actual problem and will make it worse:
