DISINFO: The Italian government might fuel the hysteria to gain benefits from EU funding
These numbers [of COVID-19 cases in Italy] cause reasonable questions because there are not so much explanations of the observed crisis in Europe. So, the entire Italian government is disfunctional and demonstrates a criminal negligence, or the available statistics exaggerates the scale of crisis. If one supposes that the Italian government is interested in fueling the hysteria and crisis to achieve some own goals (to support the global campaign in the field or gain tactical economic benefits as additional funding from the EU), it may look that authorities count any virus infection death or even deaths caused some other reasons as coronavirus-caused deaths.
Claiming that something or someone is or has failed is a common disinformation tactic in the pro-Kremlin media. Examples of such claimed failures include Hitler was a failed American experiment; Ukraine has failed as a political nation; the EU has failed; Robert Mueller failed. As for the criminal negligence of the Italian government, there is no proof. The same goes for the "fueling the hysteria and crisis to achieve some own goals".
