No, they're not doing this. The situation in Italy is that IF they have to ration medical supplies and tests and treatment, IF someone needs to not receive necessary help, THEN they need to decide who does, and who doesn't, get the help they need.

The issue then, is who ends up short-shrifted? How do you decide? The logical, practical answer is - people who are most likely to survive - should be the ones who get the priority help. Those who are least likely to survive, should be the ones left out.

This is unfathomable to most people - but when you're in a situation where someone has to die - and you are the one responsible for making the decision - you have to decide what will be the best for humanity.

Thankfully they are NOT in that situation as of yet. They, so far, do NOT have to make those decisions. Let's hope that remains true.
