A walk through an Italian hospital right now

This is why social distancing is so important.

Almost everyone you can see here is older and that hospital and its triage area is packed to the ceiling.

Most of these patients might indeed have had a pre-existing condition (smoking, obesity, asthma, high blood pressure, diabetes).

But it shouldn't necessarily condemn them to an early death.

Holy crap man... geez, that's hard to watch and awful to realize how many humans are just laying there waiting to die... 800 died yesterday alone in Italy...

Heart-wrenching. And it kills me to see so many people out socializing in close proximity without a care in the world. They know and don't care that they can all be silently passing the virus on to one another then on to other loved ones who are more vulnerable.

It won't stop spreading if people won't fucking stop being selfish dipshit assholes.
