    Italian Embassy corrects UK minister claim that 'over 60s not being treated'

    20 March 2020 By Costanza Pearce

    The Italian Embassy has moved to quell fears after UK health minister Nadine Dorries claimed that Italy has stopped intubating patients over 60.

    It comes as it was announced yesterday that almost 3,500 patients have now died from coronavirus (Covid-19) in Italy, surpassing the number of deaths in China, according to the BBC.

    In a Tweet that has now been deleted, Ms Dorries said: ‘Sobering @itvnews Italy has stopped intubating patients over 60. All ICU patients on ventilators are below 60 and not one has been weaned back off to breath independently.

    ‘We must follow the advice on social distancing if we are to crack this #coronavirus.’

    However, the Italian embassy said this was ‘fake news’ and called on Ms Dorries to ‘deny it immediately’.

    It added: ‘Italian health system staff have been working round the clock to save “all” human lives.’

    Well my boss hasn’t asked me if I want to stay home..so in other words yes, we’re being forced.

    They need to offer unpaid leave for those that don’t want to be out there. A lot of people would gladly take the time.

    No we shouldn't but honestly they should just take our trucks off the road for a few days. Show the Democrats and Republicans who's really running the show.

    This is the one and only major question that remaining employees have at my building.

    BAs say it will never happen.

    Many list the 10-15 other companies paying hazard pay.

    How many of those same people could afford to be out of work for an extended period of time without pay?

    I've been filling for management working hours for the past few weeks. I've never filed in 13 year's. It's my right and I don't think I'll stop. I should be seeing a fat "hazard pay" check in a few months.

    Our pay rate is higher than most people that we deliver to. except for you 22.4 that thought it wasn't important to vote. Even with people getting hazard pay and other companies their way to pay it's not even what we make. Except 22.4 who didn't vote.

    You should self-isolate yourself out of this conversation.

    If I were to do that it would dramatically lower the overall level of intelligence both in this thread and on the forum as a whole.
