As the country that’s been hit the hardest by the coronavirus in Europe, Italy has now put a staggering 16 million people in quarantine, the number of confirmed cases soaring to 9,172 as of Sunday with total deaths reaching 463. Public amenities and museums have been closed down, and travel bans are in full force. In light of these tragic events, the country’s own renowned designer Giorgio Armani has donated €1.25 million EUR in an effort to combat the outbreak.

The generous donation — equating to roughly $1.43 million USD — was made by the designer through his fashion group to four different hospitals across the nation (three in Milan), as well as the Civil Protection Agency. The group itself raked in revenues of €2.1 billion EUR in 2018 alone. The Lombardy regional crisis response unit’s chief Antonio Pesenti said earlier that the region’s health system was “a step away from collapse” as more and more cases arise, putting increasing pressure on the health system’s infrastructure.

In other news, Coachella 2020 has been postponed six months due to Coronavirus Concerns according to sources.
