"The population's (in Italy) calm response to the restrictive rules imposed by the government, the experience gained in the management of critically ill patients and the rumors of new treatments for the infection are grounds for hope. Perhaps the containment measures will work, and the news at the end of the week will be good. But for now, we are in the thick of tragedy." Wrote Marco Pavesi an anesthesiologist in Italy in an New York Times opinion on 18 March 2020. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/18/opinion/coronavirus-italy.html?searchResultPosition=1
