The beginning of Covid-19 pandemic in Italy

A story that traces some stages that profoundly marked the first weeks of emergency from Covid-19 in Italy, between the provinces of Lodi and Bergamo. Images taken along the checkpoints line that isolated the first Red Zone in the Codogno and lower Lodigiano area, the first virus containment area in the Western world after that of Wuhan in China; others dedicated to the Bergamo emergency, with its emergency warehouses set up to manage the impressive number of coffins of those days; some shots in one of the residences for the elderly sanitized by departments of the Special Forces of Chemical, Bacteriological, Radioactive and Nuclear Defense of the Russian Army in collaboration with the soldiers of the Biological and Chemical Nuclear Defense Regiment (CBRN) "Cremona" of Civitavecchia, of Italian army; and finally a look at the Covid Hotels in Bergamo dedicated to welcoming infected people who did not have an adequate place to spend the quarantine in isolation.
