It looks like Italy is catching up to China for Total Cases.
For the new cases, Italy got 2,313 cases per day compare with China got ONLY 36 cases per day.
I am sure that Coronavirus spread in China and Coronavirus spread in Iran and Italy are different.
Italy started having Corona Pandemic just after Iran got Pandemic. So I assume the Coronavirus in Italy is from Iran rather than from China.
Another reason I assume Coronavirus in Italy is MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome) rather than SARS-CoV in China is that Chinese Government reported that the Coronavirus spreading in China was designed in US in order to infect ONLY Asians. Italians do not have Asian genes obviously. But Italians might have close gene to Middle Easterners because of the location of the country located near Middle East just across the Mediterranean Sea.
Bill Gates had prepared 2 kinds of Coronavirus, SARS-CoV for killing Chinese, and MERS-CoV for killing Middle Easterners, especially Iranians
