  Not sure about a second strain, I've seen no information about that.
Italy is a special case because of its age distribution. She has had a
birth rate below replacement rate for decades and thus half the population
is over 50 years and 21% over 65. Mortality rate is an order of magnitude
higher for the elderly.
