Coronavirus: Italy’s Dunkirk Moment

Life is highly controlled by government rules. People must fill out a form explaining why they have gone out.

These are some of the things an American based in the quarantined area of Italy said about life in the area.

But it’s for the best. Tough times sometimes require tough rules (within reasonable bounds of course).

According to the American, it is not always easy. Some days ago, she said, a woman with Covid-19 broke away from quarantine and into the streets.

Italy should embrace this as a Dunkirk moment. During the second World War, when the British Army suddenly had to evacuate from France, or be trapped, everyone with a boat volunteered theirs.

From the small canoe to the houseboat to the speed boat. If they hadn’t done that, the British Army would have been in great peril. But because of sacrifices, they lived to fight another day.

This is a similar moment for Italy. It is time for sacrifice.
