The talking dead

"This is Very Important News from Italy. Please Read." (Marshall).  The dead talk, and they're saying there is still not enough testing going on.  A lot of virus deaths are still being blamed on other things.  Total deaths in an area is a hard number to fudge, even with crooked local officials (as in the US).

Italy and the US may just turn out to be places where there is no curve flattening, and the virus dies out only when it has killed every, or almost every, susceptible victim.  People will blame Trump, but it is really a question of the percentage of the population that consists of scofflaws.  Places where people are generally more law-abiding should do better.
