Coronavirus update: Italy struggles to combat ‘tsunami’ of cases | DW News

Italy is struggling most to combat Covid-19, with a total of nearly 5,000 coronavirus deaths. Officials there once again reported the largest one-day increase in fatalities. Regular papal events are no longer open to the public. Pope Francis’s Sunday Angelus prayers are broadcast online instead. The Vatican’s Saint Peter’s Square has been sealed off. While authorities around the world take more drastic measures to try to slow the spread of the coronavirus, the number of cases globally nearly doubled last week. The current tally by Johns Hopkins University in the United States counts more than 300,000 infections worldwide and over 13,000 deaths. The raging pandemic has forced 35 countries across the globe to impose restrictions, disrupting lives, travel and businesses. This means globally, every seventh person is confined to their homes this Sunday.

    To avoid this, I think everyone should have some device that can quickly detect this virus, and then everyone should be cautious.
    Nothing is happening to the big scientists.

    This is because of our attitude. Ignore the order to stay at home. Do not care the other people, selfish & typical minded. Many people in the world especially in US, UK or europe, they taking for granted of this virus. Still enjoy at the beach, pub, & other leisure places. This is huge calamity for the human kind. It seem like many people don't care about their life. We only live once, once you die, it never comeback for 2nd chances.

    Shortages are what companies hope for to raise prices, providing medical supplies in a crisis is the last thing you want the private sector to attend. Government must assure supply and dieter price gouging.

    This hurts my heart…💔 But, I hear that some key contributing factors of why Italy is having this surge of deaths…The amount of smokers, the increased amount of seniors in the area and the generational levels of family members that stay together in small housing. Is this true?

    oh my god! How could China do this to us? Why did they silence the doctors who tried to warn the world about what was happening in WuHan? Why are they still arresting journalist and social media users for speaking on the virus? I always wondered why China had a blocked internet, but now I can see why, to stop information getting out. This virus could have been better contained if information was shared in a timely manner.

    I suppose if Italian authorities can take help of China they must, just only think about the control it and making it on hold. Imagine u have 900 patients of covid19 a day and there are only 500 beds

    All died bodies should be burned as coronavirus will come back from those died bodies and go in to under ground water. or direct contact to any of these corpses later.
