Italians Investigate if “higher than usual number of cases of severe pneumonia and flu in Lombardy” was from the Wuhan Virus

From The Epoch Times:

MILAN—Italian researchers are looking at whether a higher than usual number of cases of severe pneumonia and flu in Lombardy in the last quarter of 2019 may be a signal that the CCP virus, also known as the new coronavirus, might have spread beyond China earlier than previously thought.

Adriano Decarli, an epidemiologist and medical statistics professor at the University of Milan, said there had been a “significant” increase in the number of people hospitalized for pneumonia and flu in the areas of Milan and Lodi between October and December last year.

He told Reuters he could not give exact figures but “hundreds” more people than usual had been taken to hospital in the last three months of 2019 in those areas—two of Lombardy’s worst hit cities—with pneumonia and flu-like symptoms, and some of those had died.
