The blow was severed and as of March 8, Lombardy was quarantined and strict self-isolation measures were instituted for covid-2019. The number in the ICU was more than the beds. There was a shortage of Ventilator and mostly facilities of the medicine were in shortage. China Doctors mostly helped the people. Italy doctors mostly applied the methodology of the china Doctors.

Schools, universities, and most shops were closed and the National Health System is trying to cope with the flood of patients needing ventilation support. Roberto Cosentini, head of the Emergency Department at Pope John XXIII Hospital in Bergamo, one of the most affected cities, has been living in the hospital for the last 3 weeks: "It's like a wave," he says. "We have now around 60-80 new COVID-19 patients per day coming to the emergency. On 20th March 202o the number of total cases in Italy was 41035 and death number was 3405.
