On March 19th, in Italy, in the city of Bergamo, province of Lombardy, authorities refused to accept patients with coronavirus.
The local crematorium is reportedly full of corpses.
On March 18th, Italy had the most victims to coronavirus in a single day out of any country. 475 cases ended fatally.
Most were from Lombardy, where Bergamo is located. Funeral homes are overloaded with work there, according to the local press.
Corpses are being moved out by military trucks.
A video shared online by the residents of Bergamo shows a long line of military trucks that drive through the streets of the city at night and load coffins into the cemetery.
Earlier, authorities in Bergamo asked for help from neighboring regions in the cremation of the dead, as the local crematorium cannot cope with the situation. Several municipalities in the neighboring province of Monza, in Modena and Emilia-Romagna, agreed to help.
An Italian military spokesman confirmed on March 19th that 15 trucks and 50 soldiers were sent to deliver corpses to neighboring provinces. About 60 coffins were delivered to the surrounding crematoriums, according to German outlet Bild.
The head of Lombardy, Attilio Fontana, reported the final collapse of the health system in his province due to an extremely large number of patients.
“Unfortunately, the number of infected people is not decreasing. In the near future we will not be able to provide treatment for patients,” he said.
Fontana called on citizens to observe a curfew: “Every exit from the apartment is a risk to you and others, we demand this sacrifice in order to save human lives.”
And Italians appear to not adhere to the quarantine. Tracking their mobile phones has proven that 40% of Bergamo’s population is still more than 300 meters away from their own home, as quarantine requires.
Meanwhile, the death toll from an outbreak of coronavirus in Italy rose in the last 24 hours by 427 to 3,405, overtaking the total number of deaths so far registered in China.
This was a slight improvement from the day before, and the newly infected as a percentage value of the total also appears to be decreasing, which could potentially mean that the infection peak is drawing near.
In the US, in some areas the situation appears to be spiraling out of control due to panic over the coronavirus.
The mayor of Baltimore is begging residents to stop shooting one another to allow doctors and nurses to focus on saving coronavirus patients and not gunshot wound victims.
In a statement on March 18th, the Mayor Jack Young said:
“I want to reiterate how completely unacceptable the level of violence is that we have seen recently. We will not stand for mass shootings and an increase in crime.
For those of you who want to continue to shoot and kill people of this city, we’re not going to tolerate it. We’re going to come after you and we’re going to get you.
We cannot clog up our hospitals and their beds with people that are being shot senselessly because we’re going to need those beds for people infected with the coronavirus.
And it could be your mother, your grandmother or one of your relatives. So take that into consideration,” he said.
The US has upwards of 14,000 coronavirus cases, with over 200 fatalities as of the early hours of March 20th.
China, which has recorded 80,967 infections and upwards of 3,200 deaths, on March 18th and 19th reported not a single domestically-transmitted case.
It said that new cases are a result of travelers from the US and Europe.
On March 19th, China recorded 39 confirmed Covid-19 cases, all of them people coming from abroad, the National Health Commission said. The total number of imported infections now stands at 228, raising real fears of the second wave of the disease.
The coronavirus crisis is also revealing some notable factors for various systems, business fields and groups.
Such as the collapse of the healthcare system in Italy, and many other countries.
Globalists are also taking advantage of the crisis to push their own agenda. It also plays right into the hands of climate change activists, as it has reportedly improved the overall environment notable, since most people are on lockdown.
Various business structures are also facing a collapse due to the situation with the lockdowns in various places.
As an example, it turned out that 90% of fishing ships that operate in northern Russian waters are doing so from foreign ports.
Fishermen warned of the risk of stopping fishing in the Barents Sea. Russian vessels catching in the Northern Basin may stop fishing due to quarantine closure of foreign ports. If the lockdown lasts until May, Russian fishermen might lose up to 70 billion rubles ($900 million).
Almost 90% of the fishery in the Northern Fisheries Basin is produced by 80 vessels, which are referred to as the so-called non-entry vessels at Russian ports.
These are new vessels bought abroad, as well as those that are being repaired and serviced at foreign ports, since Russia does not have suitable infrastructure.
To enter Russian ports, they need to go through the appropriate customs clearance. A full customs clearance of one vessel costs about $650,000 and takes an average of ten days, and the cheaper option, the so-called temporary import, for three days, an average of $50,000.
Most crews are now completing their voyages, which lasted three months, and, they will not be able to continue working or their labor productivity will be “extremely low”.
This is one example, of many various businesses that depend on various “tricks” to operate effectively, and cheaply, and the current situation caused by the coronavirus is heavily impacting their operation in a very negative way.
