ABSTRACT
When COVID-19 was first discovered, the extent of its possible impact was still unknown. Unfortunately, Italy was one of the first major countries to suffer from the effects of COVID-19. At the time, there was no accessible testing, standard protocol, or vaccines. Upon easing initial restrictions, Italy was faced with a second wave. However, once protocols were re-introduced, the spread was mitigated again. Italy is a visual case in understanding the extent of the impact COVID-19 can have, as well as providing an understanding of the importance of accessible testing, standard protocol, and vaccines as it relates to the mitigation of the effects of COVID-19. By viewing Italy’s COVID-19 case statistics, it can be concluded that it is possible to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and control its effects on major countries.
