    As far as Northern Italy is concerned, I would doubt it's common in mountain areas, but that's a guess. I'd have to do detailed research. Certainly, though, I think it was endemic around the Po plain.
    With all the intermarriage that has gone on in larger towns, it may not be at high levels even there anymore.

    "Japan Postal service is suspending international service to many countries as of 2nd April 2020. Been here 33 years and nothing like this has ever happened…. Take note and plan accordingly."

    That means no incoming mail or packages from abroad? Are they totally self-sufficient or plan to be? If the rest of the world were to follow suit, I guess that would mean don't buy those defective masks and testing kits from China.

    Another hypothesis being proposed is that the mild flu season in Italy this year, with fewer deaths among the elderly, left Italy with a bigger pool of susceptible elderly people.

    I'm not sure what to think about this, especially given that I've seen stats from Mayors in the North showing a huge spike in deaths overall from the same weeks last year. I doubt that can all be explained by this.

    https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-03-31/italy-s-mild-flu-season-may-solve-mystery-of-coronavirus-deaths


    My own personal hunch, and that's all it is, is that in Lombardia this is a "skiing" event originally. The skiers were exposed and went home, and, given the level of interaction among family members in Italy, exposed their elderly parents or grandparents. The Atalanta/Valencia match did the rest.

    Peak transmission in Spain: data from the epidemiological curve
    https://as.com/diarioas/2020/04/01/a...24_554074.html



    Actualizado a: 01/04/2020 13:03

    The Autonomous Community most affected is Madrid, where there are more infections (29,840 this Wednesday) and more deaths (3,865), and is followed by Catalonia (19,981 and 1,849) and the Basque Country (6,838 and 369). Castilla-La Mancha (7,047 and 774), Castilla y León (6,847 and 585) and Andalucia (6,392 and 308) lag behind all of these but add cases at a similar speed.


    At the beginning of the first days of confinement, it was fatal for some regions such as Extremadura, Murcia or Andalusia, the displacement of Madrid residents with a second residence in these regions. At first there was no real scope of the situation and many thought 15 days because they did not spend divinely in their second residence without knowing that they were spreading the pandemic to other territories.



    Even yesterday, the residents of a town in Almería denounced a couple who moved from Madrid to a house that her mother has in Almería. The urbanization cameras confirmed that they had skipped the confinement and will be expelled from the town.


    This video explains all this mess of curves, one curve is not the same as the other, I think it is clear.
    The video is in Spanish but it is an international language.




    He anticipates that confinement will continue through April 20. The daily contagion curve will be the one that best indicates when we are close to controlling the pandemic.

    I think you're lucky. Protection against malaria would be the only positive aspect, afaik, and "perhaps" against Covid-19 as well (so far it's just an hypothesis).

    I'm surprised he says malaria is still present there, although I know it used to be in the areas around the Po, but it's certainly possible that people with long ancestry there might have higher levels of thalassemia.

    Whether, if they carry it in higher numbers, it's protective, I don't know.

    Interestingly enough, people who have malaria are given quinine, and hydroxychloroquine (Plaquenil) is being tested because it seems to help some patients who have severe Covid 19. I hope they hurry up with the tests. People with autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis have been taking it for decades, and the only worrying side effect at "very" high doses is vision changes, so people are checked periodically.

    The question of varying genetic susceptibility to Covid 19 is something I've been thinking about too. The common cold is a coronavirus too, after all, and some people are much more susceptible.

    I was actually going to post this article.

    "Yosuke Tanigawa and Manuel Rivas of Stanford University, who have also been involved in the Host Genetics Initiative, studied data from UK Biobank to look at leucocyte antigens and blood types to understand the role of genetics in Covid-19 infections. Their work, which has not been peer-reviewed, was published on preprints.org on March 24."

    "Drawing on studies that found an association between more severe Covid-19 cases and individuals with lower lymphocyte – or white blood cell – counts, the two said that lymphocyte count “may play a role in susceptibility to viral infection and disease progression”.


    Their study also found “significant and consistent risk reduction” for the coronavirus from people with type O blood, lending support to an earlier study by Chinese researchers
    that found patients with type A blood had higher rate of infection and tended to have more severe Covid-19 symptoms, while those with type O blood had a lower risk of serious infection."
    https://www.scmp.com/news/china/soci...tible-covid-19



    I read that rs2975033(A) for HLA-A*02:01 could perhaps affect how sick people get from Covid-19. If it's true, and apparently it's still just an hypothesis, the allele "A" would be the key here.

    I wonder if I got infected already and was cured. If it's not true, than what I had was just a mild cold, coincidently. But I do fit in some groups of risk. I'm not old, but I'm not young (I reached the first half of 40s already), man, A+ (just one bro is O+, whereas the others are A+, as my parents), my hemoglobin levels used to be close to the upper limit (so nothing close to a thalassemia), I'm rs2975033(G;G) - or rs2975033(C;C) -, so not a single A (or T)... Well, at least I've never smoked, and I don't suffer from any disease. Still... I hope I don't have a foot in the grave. :)

    I checked on the “Genomapp“ app.

    The old Italian test was correct.

    Happy Face means all OK.

    ... and I won’t pass it down the line.

    The associated hypothetical protection from Covid-19 doesn’t apply to me.

    Strange things happen in my countryside.


    Let's not forget, however, that the entire Ferrara province has a very troubled millennial history in terms of reclaiming the marshes and consequent anthropization, except for some more prosperous and objectively advanced periods (under the Etruscans, the Romans, the abbots of Pomposa and the last Estensi dukes). In modern times the construction of new canals and the interventions on some ancient Po riverbeds paradoxically worsened the situation making the eastern area of ​​the province one of the most unhealthy areas until a few decades ago. So the absolute total number of inhabitants and the population density are still so scarce that they make it really difficult to spread an infection. The center of Jolanda di Savoia, founded in the early twentieth century and located halfway between Ferrara and the sea, is still called by the old villagers "il Vnezì" (the "Venezie"), so much so were those places immensely desolate and swampy.

    http://www.naturalistiferraresi.org/...-Ferrarese.pdf




    (Ditto for the near Polesine...)




    All this must certainly have involved bottlenecks on the local population and thalassemia is a protective factor where there is malaria, so those who were affected had a greater evolutionary advantage: for its cause many people suffered and died from millennia and centuries, but much more has survived inheriting it as healthy carriers (like two of my grandparents).
    Perhaps thalassemia is only one of the contributing factors of this presumed immunity, perhaps it will be necessary to sift the entire Ferrarese genome well. As you have already pointed out I think that the theory of the partial "Greekness" of Ferrara and its surroundings (including also the nearby Polesine, Rovigo but also a little Ravenna), which is also associated with the mutation that leads to Cooley's disease, are an important suspect.
    This is an old scan, found on the Web, recovered from Cavalli-Sforza's studies on the genetic variability of the Italians, who identified a component that differentiates the local populations from the rest just behind the Po Delta, due - according to the scholar - to presences Greek, both very ancient (Spina, Adria) and more recent (Byzantine). As it turned out, the Chinese disease may indeed have encountered different human material here.







    For superstitiousness, I don't add anything else, but it's obvious that - for personal reasons - I'm a bit cheering for this theory: it allows me to sleep more calmly in times of Covid-19...

    County in china locks down amid concerns of potential second coronavirus wave

    A county in central China has reportedly gone into a mid-sized lockdown amid fears of a second coronavirus wave as Beijing is trying to emerge from the deadly outbreak and revive its economy.
    Roughly 600,000 residents near the city of Pingdingshan in Jia County were told to stay home as curfew measures went into effect Tuesday. The county is located in the Henan province, some 500 miles south of Beijing and just north of the Hubei province where the pandemic originated in December 2019.
    A notice on the county microblog account said special permits are needed to leave home and residents must have their temperature taken and are required to wear face masks, the South China Morning Post reported.
    In addition, only people with special permits can travel to work and cars are allowed to be driven on alternate days, defined by the license plate number.
    “It’s better not to come to Jia county now,” an unnamed official with the county’s transport office told the newspaper. “Nobody can enter or leave.”

    Neurologists say a small subset of patients w/ Covid-19 develop serious impairments of the brain. “This may indicate the virus can invade the brain directly in rare circumstances.”
    The patients experience strokes, seizures, and, in one case, encephalitis.
    Some Chinese doctors have reported this as well.
    Do other coronavirus viruses cause this?






    A small piece of good news: open source plans for easier and cheaper to make ventilators.

    An hour ago, a team of 40+ medical experts & engineers from Israel released the #opensource blueprints for
    @AmboVent
    - a low-cost, medically tested #COVIDー19 ventilator device, made from off-the-shelf components, to answer worldwide #Coronavirus shortages
