to see if Germany's bed capafcity is enough) is prepared for massive 
casualities (in this case sick),  Been known since the Cold War (& civil 
defense) and movies have touched on it.  When the article about Italy's 
health care system straining-- the doctors mentioned wartime casaulity 
rates (I rememcer that term from civil defense)
