The day after the first case of Italian COVID-19 patient in Codogno (Lombardy, Italy) on February 20, 2020, a second outbreak was detected at the “Riuniti Hospitals Padova Sud” of Monselice (Veneto, Italy) [1]. Here, 2 patients (respectively 78 and 67 years old) both coming from Vò Euganeo, a small village near Padua, were admitted because of interstitial pneumonia and found positive to the SARS-CoV-2 virus. Authorities quarantined these 2 “red” areas by closing down schools and commercial activities and cancelling all the social, civil and religious events.
