Today, as we enter the 9th week of lockdown here in Milan, there are 181,228 cases and 24,114 deaths in Italy. In the neighborhood I live in there are 107 cases with 14 fatalities. Thankfully, the number of daily new cases continues to drop and slowly, too slowly for us here, the daily death rate is declining.
Yesterday, I, along with millions of people around the world, watched Andrea Bocelli give a live stream concert from the Duomo of Milan. The mayor of Milan, Bepe Sala, had invited him to give the concert as a gift to people of Milan, and indeed the world, on Easter Sunday.
