Italy has 681 coronavirus victims per day, at least in almost two weeks
In Italy, 681 coronaviruses died on the last day, at least in two weeks. The number of victims in the country rose to 15,362, Italian civil protection reported today. The number of infected people has increased by 4805 in the last 24 hours, Corriere della Sera reported. Altogether 124,632 cases of infection have been confirmed in Italy since the outbreak of the country, of which almost 21,000 people have recovered.
According to data reported today, there are now 88,274 infected in Italy, of which 55,270 are in home care. There are 3994 people in intensive care units, 74 less than the authorities reported on Friday.
The number of covid-19 deaths in Italy is the lowest in the last 24 hours since March 23, when the authorities reported 602 new casualties per day. However, there are more cases of new infections today than the authorities announced on Friday, when they registered 4585 newly confirmed infections.
Italy is the worst affected nation in terms of coronavirus-related deaths. It is the third in the world after the US (nearly 300,000 confirmed cases) and Spain, which by today in this tragic table skipped about a hundred (with a total of 124,736 cases confirmed so far).
Italian epidemiologists assume that their country has already reached the peak of infection. The numbers of newly infected and dead people are now expected to stay roughly at the same level and gradually start to decline.
There are 708 deaths in Britain, the most so far in a day
The number of coronavirus victims in Britain has risen by 20 percent to 4313 in the last day, according to Reuters, referring to the Department of Health. Compared to the previous day, there were 708 deaths, and this is a new sad record. Tests of coronavirus infection showed in 41,900 people. According to one of the most important government advisors, the government is unlikely to mitigate the restrictive measures introduced to spread the infection before the end of May.
Among the new victims in England is a five-year-old child or a 104-year-old.
In an interview with the BBC, Professor of Mathematical Biology at the Royal University of London said in late May that authorities could start replacing the current restrictions with measures based more on the use of modern technology and testing. Now almost all shops, pubs and restaurants are closed and people are ordered to be at home as much as possible. Ferguson says the UK epidemic peaks in a week to ten days. How much the growth of new cases slows down depends on how people adhere to the current strict rules.
According to another government adviser, Graham Medley of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, Britain lacks a strategy to retreat from the current measures that damage both the economy and the mental condition of many. Reuters writes that nearly a million people have asked for state support in two weeks, and official economic data suggests that the British economy may be at risk of even worse depression than the 1930s. “We got a bit of a corner because the question comes: what are we going to do now? (…) Will we continue to hurt children to protect vulnerable people or not?” Medley said in an interview with The Times.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who himself has been infected with covid-19 and is in isolation because of this, has invited opposition leaders to discuss how Britain will respond to the effects of coronavirus. The newly elected Labor Chief Keir Starmer was also invited. “As party leaders, we have a duty to cooperate in the current state of emergency,” Johnson said.
Police and healthcare professionals are worried about the warm and sunny weather this weekend is to dominate in Britain. They are afraid that too many people will go to the parks and to popular destinations.
In Birmingham and Merseyside in the south west of England, there have been cases of burning 5G transmitters in recent days. Some proponents of conspiracy theories associate this with coronavirus. Mobile operators and authorities warn against the spread of such rumors. “There is absolutely no credible evidence of a link between 5G and coronavirus,” the British Department of Digitization, Culture, Media and Sport said in a statement according to the BBC.
The pregnant fiancee of the British Prime Minister has the symptoms of covid-19
Carrie Symonds, the fiancée of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson, who is expecting her first child in early summer, has symptoms of coronavirus infection. After a week, he said he feels better, Reuters wrote.
“I spent the last week in bed with the main symptoms of coronavirus. I didn't need the test, and after a seven-day rest I feel stronger and healing,” Symonds said. Johnson himself was also infected with coronavirus. The seven-day quarantine originally wanted to end on Friday, but that day announced that it will extend it for a week because it is still hot.
Symonds told the other pregnant women to study the latest instructions on what to do in the event of an infection.
The Czech National Institute of Public Health states that pregnant women are not more at risk of covid-19 infection or suffer more severe disease than other people in the same age group. According to the EAA, there is no evidence that the virus could be transmitted to the unborn child during pregnancy or childbirth.
Germany reports over 85,500 cases of coronavirus infection and 1154 victims
In Germany, 85,559 cases of coronavirus infection have been reported to date this morning, with 1,154 people still having been infected. This stems from DPA statistics, which take into account data from individual Länder. Official data not yet available.
Over the past 24 hours, this has seen an increase in the number of infected cases of around 5,000 new cases. The total balance of deaths increased by 132, on Friday morning the authorities registered 1,022 victims of the disease caused by coronavirus.
Bavaria (20,962), which borders the Czech Republic, continues to report the most infected. North and Westphalia (18,557), the most populous German federal state, and Baden-Württemberg (17,180) remain second and third. Together, these three countries have 872 victims.
In Saxony, which is also adjacent to the Czech Republic, there are 2646 infected and 25 dead. Of the 16 German Länder, it is ninth in the number of cases.
The Spanish government has proposed extending the state of emergency by two weeks
In Spain, 809 people died of coronavirus in the last 24 hours, compared to Friday's data, the daily death toll is one hundred lower and is the lowest of the previous week. A total of 11,744 people with covid-19 have died in the country, and coronavirus infection has so far been confirmed in Spain with 124,736 people. Since Friday, 7,000 new cases have been added, the Ministry of Health informed today. Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez announced today that he would propose to Parliament to extend the state of emergency by two weeks.
The number of victims in the last 24 hours is the lowest in Spain today in the last week. On Friday, the Department of Health reported 932 deaths per day, even 950 a day earlier. Last Saturday, death rates ranged from around 800 to 860. Of the 124,736 cases confirmed since the first coronavirus infection in the country on January 31, 34,219 patients has already healed, said the Ministry of Health today.
The Spanish government declared a state of emergency in mid-March as a result of the spread of coronavirus in the country and restricted the free movement of persons to the most necessary purchases, travel to the doctor or work for two weeks. Eventually, this restriction was extended by the Parliament until Easter, and the government also ordered the cessation of work in operations that are not strictly necessary for the country's operation.
Today, Prime Minister Sánchez announced that after consulting the government's expert committee, he would propose an extension of the state of emergency until 26 April. According to El País, MEPs should vote on it on Thursday. Chairman of the main opposition party, leader of the Christian Democrats Pablo Casado has already written on twitter that his party will support the proposal.
“I will propose another 15 days of extension, but I am already saying that there will be more days (restrictions). However, I emphasize that the other days will not be the same,” said Sánchez today. He added that the government wants to lift restrictions gradually.
According to local media, the extension of 15 days will only apply to restrictions on the movement of people from home, as is the case since mid-March. The measure by which the government has reduced the operations of businesses that are not necessary for the country's operation since the beginning of this week will not be extended. They will be able to work again after Easter.
According to local media, the government is considering mitigating some measures, such as allowing one of the parents to go out with their children, as Italy did this week. In order to make it easier to get out of the house, the Spanish government is considering imposing an obligation to go out with a veil, according to El País. However, since there are not enough of them in the country, he will probably be able to order this measure in a month or so, El País said.
