Dr Antonio Pesenti, the head of Lombardy’s intensive crisis care unit, said lots of younger people are infected and are being admitted to intensive care units.

Top Dr warns UK is “weeks behind Italy.” Dr Antonio Pasenti Head of Lombardy’s Intensive crisis care unit in Italy told Sky News on Friday, that “the UK is a matter of weeks behind Italy” and will most likely experience “what we are seeing.”
