Furthermore, «the crisis in Italy is not even the product of a particularly weak health system. “And if many in Italy today say that their government has waited too long, Western democracies have evaluated the same decisions and in some cases have ended up acting less decisively”, highlights the article, in an evident reference to other European countries and the long delay of the same US administration.
