Italy: awareness of new phenomenon Blue Whale suicide game among teenagers 2017 The statistic shows the awareness among Italians of the new phenomenon "Blue Whale" game born in Russia, which led various teenagers to suicide teenagers in 2017. According to data, over 70 percent of respondents did not know about the new phenomenon before it was addressed during the TV show Le Iene. The Blue Whale Challenge, also known as the Blue Whale suicide game, is an online game in which participants are purportedly assigned a curator who provides various acts of self-harm to be committed over the course of 50 days. On the final day, participants are urged to win the game by committing suicide. While over 100 teen suicides have reportedly been linked to the game, no direct evidence has been found.
