sandybrook said...

no tenga una passporta

longtimereader said...

Yup, cheap flights/Hotels plus Venice/Florence/Rome is empty of tourists.

J said...

No. Museums are closed.

Alf Landon said...

No desire, but a fake virus wouldn't stop me.

sandybrook said...

I'm not sure they are letting anyone in right now, since the entire country was locked down yesterday...

MJ said...

As an italian, your comments make me smiles..but perhaps you could wait a week or two

i wouldn't want you bring here some virus :p

SeijnSei said...

Yes.

Guesser said...

No,everything is closed.

Boozie said...

@alf you twat it's not a fake virus.

Alf Landon said...

yes it is. Go wash down your blue pill with more booze

J said...

Lol @ Alf.

No desire to visit Italy? Dumbest thing you've said. And there's a lot of competition.

Rosie riveter said...

If you can't afford to go to Italy rn you need to reevaluate your choices in life.
So what's stopping you deniers? Since this is fake, just book your flight.
Pleeeeeease do bounce

Rosie riveter said...

No desire lol
broke ass cunt
Book a flight

Alf Landon said...

You can tell who the sheeple morons are because they get angry and vulgar when confronted with truth.

IndieRaga said...

Absolutely.....in a moment!

IndieRaga said...

Also known as Bhakts in my country....do Google!

Boozie said...

@alf you do get that not everything is political or a conspiracy, right?

J said...

Sounds like Roofie's planning a trip.

Ragazzi, keep your drinks in sight. Beware πŸ’ŠπŸ’ŠπŸΊπŸ˜΄

Si si! The sauce protein fromma da spaghett kills di viroso

Bleu said...

No. But the average age of the people who have died in Italy of this coronovirus is 81.

Also: "In South Korea, no one under the age of 30 has died and in Japan, no one under 50 has died, the CDC official said. 'Data from these countries help us understand the potential risk in the U.S.'"

No. I have zero desire to travel. For decades my work required me to travel and spend up to 40 weeks a year on the road. So I'm pretty much done with that. It was all I could do to muster up the effort to attend a close family wedding.

Brayson87 said...

Not unless I wanted to be quarantined there and then again when I returned home.

Unknown said...

Not right now thanks. I hear its super hard to get back to the US. However, maybe being "stuck" in Italy is not a bad thing.

Alf Landon said...

Boozie doesn't get anything

gauloise said...

Come to Italy and visit our wonderful supermarkets and pharmacies because everything else is closed :)

@Bleu 35% of intensive care patients are under 60, and include many in their 20s and 30s, the younger people are strong enough to get cured in 3 weeks and will have to live with effects of double pneumonia for the rest of their lives.

The problem is we are running out of intensive care beds and ventilators for pneumonia. Once that happens, the younger people will die too.

I saw a clips of all the tourists doing their insta-worthy shots in Rome wearing masks, lol. Seriously stay inside and stop being foolish and this will go away.

Aquagirl said...

No, and it’s my favorite country. Anyone who would consider going right now is an idiot (and selfish.) But then again, Coronavirus doesn’t exist, right? (Maybe read Gauloise’s comments, who actually lives there.)

At this point, approximately 115 cases in the US are connected to people who went to Italy. 1 person in Westchester County, NY has infected 100 people and there is a group of 15 people in CA who went skiing. They all tested positive, 3 are in the hospital, and one is in serious condition. These are athletic guys in their 40’s.

Aquagirl said...

I was typing while you were posting. I was referring to your past posts but glad you’re here again today to educate people.

WickedBee said...

Absolutely! My family’s farm is far enough away from major population And if I was “stuck” it would be heavenly.
Unfortunately, AirCanada just suspended all flights.

JS said...

No

Lucy T. said...

I'm not going anywhere.

Italy had 3 reported cases on Feb 20 roughly 3 weeks ago.  They just released that they now have 10,149. 

The US is not being properly warned about how this virus could go.

CDC Director Robert Redfield says danger of coronavirus at the moment is that hospitals are already almost completely full of flu patients:

“We really don’t have a lot of resilience in the capacity of our health care system.”

I would prefer to go to Wubolia and lick doorknobs. Go to Windsor Castle dressed as a Japanese school girl. Drive a toilet paper truck in Australia. Get a job in a Seattle nursing home. Become a vaccine tester.

ZZZedMaster said...

I'm glad those guineas are the ones getting hard.Let's hope the virus kills all those mobsters in one swipe.#killthemafia

Em and 'im said...

Lovely country, but I wouldn’t travel there right now. We normally stay in the stunning countryside rather than the big cities anyway. I will go back after this virus threat has passed, and when the Italian people welcome the tourists and the euros they bring.

OKay said...

I'd go, but what's the point? There's nowhere to go and nothing to see, Italy's all locked up.

I'm a fatalist. I think if I'm meant to die from this virus I will and nothing can change that. But if I'm not, then nothing will change that either.

Ann said...

No, not at this time. Italy is one of my favorite vacation destinations. I had a relative live in Italy for many years and it's a beautiful country. The shopping and people are fabulous.

Bleu said...

This. My company is making several employees (including me) self-quarantine right now as it is (a conference we attended apparently had another attendee who has since been diagnosed). Travel quarantines outside the airport when you come back -- OMG.

Brayson87 said...

@Bleu, That sucks, hopefully it's just a two week vacation.

fionafab said...

Not to Italy but I would definitely travel to Morocco...like tomorrow if I could get my husband to go with me.

Nick said...

Honestly for all you saying it's a fake virus, it isn't fake...Planned maybe, but it's very real. People are dying here in Spain, hospitals are full of people infected and there's not enough beds. This is nothing like the common flu. It's spreading so fast .

Lorkhan said...

Absolutely. I wanna go see the sculpture Michaelangelo did of a woman using a male model & then hastily slapped some sheep tits on it.

Is it worth dying of Corona virus? Only if I don't die laughing first.

SlimKeith said...

I was going to take my teenage son to Paris in April for his spring break so it sounds SO tempting but alas, no. Everything is closed.
Traveling is also more than just seeing the sites, it's also interacting with new, interesting and often annoying people.

Kansa said...

No, people are still in the "I Stay Home" full country quarantine, so beyond the issue of getting sick, none of the great restaurants or even normal tourists sites are going to be open. Most of the airlines are not flying there. I live in Belgium, where what government there is, is thinking about putting the entire country on lockdown, as the Italians have done. Today they banned visits to the elderly in care homes. People were told last week to go see their elderly relatives. So no, I wouldn't go to Italy just now. I don't want to watch the Italians fighting over food when they are allowed out of quarantine. (It was bad enough in Milan in October, just going into a regular grocery store and having to dodge elbows and people pretending the aisles were luge runs!)

No way. But then again, I was just in Italy in October. I visited Northern Italy--the regions of Lombardy, Piedmont and Trentino Alto Adige. Great trip, but.... There is nothing in Italy work taking the risk and what a moldy trip it would be! Museums and major tourist attractions are closed, places where people gather are closed, people are holed up in their homes. Molto depressing! There will always be another time to visit Italy, but this is not it. I feel for the Italians having to deal with this crisis on top of their economic woes of late, but adding more tourists to potentially spread the virus is not prudent.

Melody the First said...

No, because I’m not an idiot. Besides, the Italians have enough to contend with.

Venice in the spring, without tourists?

Yes, but I would miss by beloved springtime in Virginia ...

so, I guess, no.

Unknown said...

That's a hell to the no.

Sd Auntie said...

Too many tanned folks for Alf in Italy.

Was going to go in 2021. Guess not.

Mischi said...

nope. Not worth it. Italians can't even form a queue. Can you imagine having to deal with them during a life and death situation? Sorry but it's the truth. They make nice stuff and good food and are nice, but don't know the meaning of the word "discipline"

ZZZedMaster said...

No ugly people ugly shithole mafia state.

bootsy said...

No. Because in order to contain the virus you need to not be selfish and change your normal day to day life by limiting your exposure to other people/zones that might be infectious which means you might become a carrier, and therefore a spreader of said virus.

MichiganMama59 said...

Hell yes
