Italy’s total casualties from the Chinese coronavirus passed 1,000 on Thursday, far outpacing death rates for other European countries.

The southern European nation is ground zero for the virus in Europe. More than 15,000 people have been diagnosed with the disease, a figure that suggests the mortality rate of the condition is even higher in Italy than it is in the virus’ place of origin in Wuhan, China.

The death count was increased by 189 people in the past twenty-four hours, placing the latest figures released by Italian authorities at 1,016.

Several major regions in the north of the country have been placed under a mandatory quarantine. More than 16 million Italians are living under these conditions as of Thursday.

Chilling footage of Italian police instructing all citizens to remain in their homes surfaced earlier this week.

The Vatican has even ordered churches in the vicinity of Rome to be closed amidst the pandemic, underscoring the seriousness of the situation.

The European Union failed to enact restrictions on its conventional ‘freedom of movement’ system after the outbreak arrived in the country, suggesting that it’s possible the pandemic currently present in Italy could arise in neighboring European countries such as Germany, France and Spain.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made the striking claim that the state was going to see a situation akin to that in Italy within the coming weeks during a press conference on Thursday.

Italian Populist Youth Group Praises Trump for His Peace Efforts

The Lega Nord is one of Europe’s strongest populist parties.

Published

The Lega Giovani, the youth branch of Salvini’s Lega party, announced its support in nominating President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Due to Trump’s efforts in brokering peace deals between Gulf Arab states and Israel, one Norwegian lawmaker Christian Tybring-Gjedde nominated the president for the Nobel Peace prize.

In a statement, Luca Toccalini, a member of the Italian Parliament and Chairman of Lega Giovani, declared that the “globalist left is losing its mind, scared by the outcome of the upcoming American elections, and this latest news decisively increased their worries.”

Toccalini added that Lega Giovani “strongly” supports the “nomination of President Donald Trump, a just reward for the continued dedication of his administration for lasting peace with a bilateral and multi polar approach.”

The populist Italian member of Parliament noted how Trump’s Middle East agenda has contrasted with Obama’s:

After a decade of turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa, sponsored by a globalist agenda and President Obama’s dreams of revolution, the last 4 years have seen great improvement for the stability in our neighbourhood which has also helped Europe.

Toccalini concluded:

Wishing four more years of peace and greatness, as Lega Giavani we strongly support Donald J. Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Matteo Salvini and Lega have led the way in putting populism on the map throughout Europe. Salvini broke the mold by implementing pro-gun reforms in 2018 and 2019. What seems like a concept that is only confined to the U.S., now the right to bear arms is starting to enter the conversation in Europe. Political organizations like Lega have undoubtedly changed political discourse in Italian politics and Europe, for that matter.

Youth organizations such as Lega Giovani will play a substantial role in spreading Lega’s message and educating younger generations of Italians and preparing them to be the new populist vanguard of an ever-changing European polity.
