Quarantined Italians Record Messages To ‘Themselves From 10 Days Ago’
There is a video making its way around social media that is giving Americans good insight on what can be expected amid this coronavirus pandemic, especially to those who don’t take the virus seriously. The video is captioned, “It is believed nations like the US, England, France, Spain and Germany are about 9-10 days behind Italy in the COVID19 progression. We asked people from all around Italy to record a message to themselves of 10 days prior.”
In the video, Italians are recording messages as if they are talking to themselves from 10 days in the future. They are explaining what their current conditions are like, and how much coronavirus is affecting their way of life. A number of them explain what their lives were, and how they used to do things like eat out and enjoy the company of others. “But in ten days, life won’t be like this anymore,” one man says before they begin describing their current living conditions that include being stuck at home under mandatory quarantine, working deadly shifts at hospitals, and even people dying. Their main message throughout the video: stay at home.
