Ok, what is it within this family that makes them so suseptible?  This is four of the nine Jersey cases all in one family... odds are way out there to me, I feel like I'm missing something here...

If it's to be - it's up to me!

Many reports of family clusters in china, it was a thing.



The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself......FDR

Many groups, Italians included, are very affectionate with kids and young adults....older women (grandma) kiss kids right on the lips (I grew up with that, kind of gross!), and kids are being shown to carry the virus and transmit the illness with NO symptoms.  

This is based upon analysis I've read about the experience in Italy....younger adults who are carriers have slaughtered their elders.  

No more baci e abbracci

The famous Italian habit of kissing and hugging friends and acquaintances (and in some areas, people you've just met) will have to stop for the next month, the committee has decreed. Handshakes are out, too.

They simply picked the wrong time to have a family gathering during a viral outbreak.

I wonder if they had the L strain rather than the S strain?  No one is talking about what strains people have, that is important I think because if Italy has the L strain and we have the L strain we are in trouble.
