As the coronavirus continues to spread, Italy emerged thus far as the hardest hit country outside of China. The coronavirus outbreak has reached more than 119,000 people, and the death toll has surpassed 4,200 worldwide. In Italy alone, there are over 10,000 confirmed cases with at least 631 deaths. This week, the entire country went under an unprecedented lockdown to contain the spread of the disease. With one of the world's oldest populations next to Japan, Italian nationals may be more more at risk, as the coronavirus has showed to be more fatal in cases involving elderly individuals with underlying health conditions. Doctors are pushed to their limits as they face an overwhelming number of patients.
