The world is struggling at the moment and no country more so than Italy, a place where the large elderly population means a catastrophic amount of fatalities as a result of the coronavirus.
There have been many viral videos to have come out in the wake of the devastation in Italy but perhaps one picture says more than any viral footage or lengthy analysis ever could.
Twitter account Travelito shared a picture of the heroic Italian nurses and doctors at the end of their shifts looking like soldiers on the frontline of a particularly egregious war. And, in a very real sense, that’s exactly what they are, seeing as thousands have died in Italy already.
Some of Italian nurses & doctors after long hours of work in intensive care. ❤️🇮🇹 https://t.co/YAG9oVcgrq
