So northern Italy is going under a 30 day lockdown/quarantine.
This is up from the 15 day quarantine many pundits and the media have been saying to expect.
I suspect we were just waiting until several European nations begin mass quarantines/lockdowns, then we would see it happen in many nations/states/cities.
This is the first 'western' nation to enforce a lockdown, and I think they will start to come hard and fast around Europe soon.
Next week will see a sharp spike in confirmed cases across Europe/USA.
