    Italy remains Europe's largest hotbed for the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-2019). Despite having gone into complete lockdown last week, the nation displays disturbing statistics of additional coronavirus cases almost hourly. As of Sunday, local health officials reported that approximately 3,500 more had been infected and 175 more dead.

    The Italian Air Force (Aeronautica Militare) put on a breathtaking performance in the sky in support of the nation amid the rapidly spreading COVID-19 outbreak.

    Military pilots are reportedly regularly maneuvering their jets in the sky to create colored smoke displaying the national flag.

    ​The air show is accompanied by Pavarotti's famous Nessun Dorma. Netizens have praised the performance, suggesting that the lyrics of this song exactly match national sentiment.

    "Unity and teamwork have always been the principles on which our Armed Force is based and, at this moment more than ever, are fundamental", the Italian Air Force said in a statement.

    Italy remains on lockdown and has reported 24,747 cases and 1,809 deaths due to the pandemic.
