The coronaviruses also called (CoV) would actually be a family of viruses that normally attack the victim’s respiratory system. Depending on the type they may cause more or less severe and prolonged symptoms over time. There are several strains of this virus. To give an example the last initially called 2019-nCoV and later renamed SARS-CoV-2, would be responsible for the pathology called COVID19. Another example of this virus is THE MERS.
The name coronavirus is due mostly to the form. This type of virus is very common in many animal species and in some cases would have mutated to infect humans. When we talk about the new coronavirus in this article, we refer to the new strain of this virus that had never been found in humans. The strains of coronaviruses that attack the man and have been identified should be 229E, NL63, OC43, HKU1, MERS-CoV, SARS-CoV and the 2019-nCoV.
Without claiming to teach someone anything, we report the meaning of the word virus according to wikipedia for simplicity. It is an acellular microorganism with characteristics of an obligatory parasite, as it replicates exclusively within the cells of other organisms. A microorganism refers to a microscopic organism not necessarily classified as living or non-living. Being an obligatory parasite it needs to use, in this case the cells of another organism like the human one to multiply. Some of these virulent microorganisms, as they have to exploit the cells of our body to replicate, can cause problems in the host body. Viruses are profoundly different from bacteria because the latter are real living microorganisms consisting of a single procariota cell.
We still have no reliable data on this virus and we are not yet able to provide treatments that can make all the people who contract it with mathematical certainty. The disease, covid-19, can occur in a mild or severe form and seems to get much worse if there are other certain serious pre-existing diseases.
For the sake of convenience of reading we will aggregate the news related to the new coronavirus in chronological order descending or from the most recent news to the most inveterate. Anyone who wants to read the timeline in descending order can read the article from bottom to top.
June 6, 2020
In Italy for a couple of days we returned to move also in the neighboring regions and many were able to embrace their loved ones who were in a different region from theirs. Infections in Italy would seem to have fallen a lot and even the victims of coronavirus, in other parts of the world is not so. In Latin America, for example, cases of victims and infections have increased exponentially, reaching and exceeding the numbers of Italy. Meanwhile, worldwide, the number of confirmed cases of coronavirus has reached 6.7 million, with more than 375,000 victims. It would be the fourth day in a row with more than 1000 deaths in Brazil, 1124 deaths in the last 24 hours and the US recording 1225 new deaths in the last 24 hours. Cases of coronavirus deaths are also on the rise in India and Algeria.
May 17, 2020
While in Italy, tomorrow they should reopen all the activities and numbers of infected and dead drops significantly every day, in the rest of the world unfortunately things would be different; New dramatic record in the United States where in the last 24 hours more than 25,000 cases of coronavirus and another 1224 victims would be recorded. According to John Hopkins University, there are at least 1,467,884 people infected in the U.S. and at least 88,754 people who died as a result of the virus. Even in Latin America, cases in less than 3 days would have increased by 77,000, surpassing half a million people with 28,500 deaths. The other nations of South America would also not be better off, unfortunately. Meanwhile, WHO regional director Hans Kluge said in an interview with the British Daily Telegraph newspaper that the easing of lockdowns in many European countries should not be an opportunity to celebrate the end of the coronavirus. The same is said to be very worrying about the autumn as there may be a second wave of Covid along with another seasonal flu. Meanwhile, Russia would become the second country in the world, after the US, for a total number of sick people, which would be 281,752.
May 7, 2020
Europe would be the continent most affected by the pandemic, but while the numbers would stabilise, in other parts of the world it would be increasing exponentially. In the US in the last twenty-four hours there would have been 2,073 deaths, in the country so far more than 73,000 people with 1,228,000 infections, while Latin America has exceeded 300,000 confirmed cases, including more than 16,000 deaths, with about 45,000 positives detected in just 72 hours. In Europe, however, several nations would have eased quarantine. For example, Italy on 4 May would have given citizens the opportunity to visit their relatives, and would have started the opening of production companies, giving the possibility to more than 4 million Italians to return to work. France, from Monday, would also ease the rules by reopening industries, but openings linked to the various areas of France. The country is divided into green and red zones, in the latter the transition would take more cautiously. In the UK, Boris Johnson would hold back in front of his ministers over the easing of lockdown, against the backdrop of the coronavirus emergency numbers, waiting to announce the first stages of Phase 2 in a speech to the nation scheduled for Sunday night. In Moscow there would be more contagiocs than in all of China. We would still be in phase 2, or about to enter, and so we should all learn to live with this virus, at least until a vaccine is found.
May 1, 2020
Today would be good news, finally. More than a million people would be cured in the world of coronavirus. But the numbers still remain very high. With a total of 3,257,500 positive results for the virus, 233,405 died. In America unfortunately would not slow down the spread of the virus, the daily number of dead would rise again, according to Jhons Hopkins University, were today 2502 compared to 2200 yesterday. An authoritative virologist from the US task force against coronavirus would not rule out the US being able to get to the vaccine by next year. In Europe, the situation remains serious but not uniform, according to Hans Kluge, who is the WHO’s regional director for Europe, as Spain, Italy, the United Kingdom, Germany and France still have the highest number of cases, but as a result of the space-out measures there would be reductions in the new cases. Kluge added that when the first wave of the coronavirus has passed, it would be essential to prepare for a second and even a third, especially if there is not yet a vaccine available. In Germany, religious services would be allowed to be celebrated again, but under certain conditions that guarantee safety.
27 April 2020
Yesterday there was an important turning point at least for Italy, premier Conte in a press conference in the country, would dictate the general lines for the start of phase 2 of the coronavirus, the restart. There are not many concessions, the whole thing would still be to be looked at from the point of view of security and therefore the reopenings would be staggered. They would first reopen manufacturing companies, the swells and construction sites on 4 May. For everyone else for now we look at the date of May 18 for retail stores and for the first of June for everyone else. As for the global pandemic numbers to date, there would be 2,810.00 infected with almost 194,000 deaths. In other countries, too, some activities are beginning to reopen, for example in Bangladesh textile factories would reopen, while in China classes would resume for students in the final year of high school and in Wuhan would reopen tourist attractions. In Gaza they would reopen restaurants. While in New York City a lot of people leave and don’t know if and when they’ll come back. There would be too much contagion in the big apple and people are afraid given also the numbers of victims that are there every day. However, the general situation would have changed a little, even if only loose, but always kept under close control.
16 April 2020
Let’s start with the European data that to date are the following: according to the agency French France Presse, there are about 90,000 people in Europe who have died of coronavirus. The WHO said at a press conference about the pandemic in Europe: “We must not make mistakes now, even though spring has arrived, we are still in the middle of the storm. Some countries still have to experience the strongest impact, while in others there is a moment of calm with the number of new cases decreasing. The WHO also adds that out of 300,000 tests carried out for the coronavirus, 1 in 13 cases of contagion involves a health worker. The UK would remain in lockdown for another three weeks due to a situation that would contain around 100,000 infections and hundreds of deaths a day.
In the United States, about 31,000 coronavirus deaths would be lost to the United States, according to the Johns Hopkins University count. The US is the most affected country in the world by the pandemic ahead of Italy with 21,645 victims, Spain with 10,130 and France with 17,167. Coronavirus cases totaled 639,700 cases in the US. There would be about 22 million Americans out of work; they would have lost their jobs in the last four weeks with the closures arranged to contain the coronavirus. New York State is expected to remain closed until May 15, while other states will reopen before others.
In Japan, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe has extended a state of emergency for the pandemic to the whole of Japan.
April 11, 2020
Easter Eve with the coronavirus, yesterday no Via Crucis in our parishes and tomorrow no Mass, and even more you now feel the distance from our loved ones with whom we were accustomed to share such holidays. Unfortunately today nothing is as it was only a short time ago, and we still have to deal with quarantines and limitations. The numbers of this pandemic are not at all good, to date the deaths from coronavirus in the world exceed 95,000, with 1,600,000 cases confirmed, of which a third in the United States. It is slowing down the epidemic in Europe but is increasing alarmingly in other countries such as Africa. From the United States would come shocking images, taken by a drone, of coffins buried next to each other in mass graves near New York. Unfortunately in Bolivia there would be the case of a 5-month-old baby who died from coronavirus, and there was another one of only 6 weeks in Connecticut who would be the youngest victim of this pandemic. Meanwhile in some countries such as Iran, it would be thought to start phase 2 to gradually return to normal, as did China, which has already resumed activities although with many restrictions to avoid a much-feared return.
31 March 2020
Retno Marsudi announced that Indonesia would close the inbound and transit borders of all foreigners in order to contain the epidemic. However, there should be some exceptions for certain diplomaic missions and for those who have residence permits. The Indonesian authorities should also strengthen controls against Indonesian citizens who are travelling to return to their country.
Aaditya Mattoo, the world bank’s chief economist, said that because of the new coronavirus, China’seconomy could go through a shutdown that would lead to poverty over 11 million people. According to the economist’s forecasts, China’s economy could slow to 2.3 from the 6.1 recorded in 2019. In China there would have been a slowdown in new cases of infection with new coronavirus, with 81510 confirmed infections, 3305 deaths and 76052 discharged from hospitals. It is therefore calculated that the healing rate in china should be around 93.2. There would also be 48 new cases imported from abroad.
India decided to convert some sports facilities such as a stadium to cope with the onset of cases of the new coronavirus. The BBC said India’s health system may not have adequate human resources and materials to cope with the virus and manage the crisis. In fact, in India there would be only 8 doctors per 10,000 people.
In India the total number of recorded cases is expected to be 1251 with 32 deaths.
According to Italian Minister Luigi di Maio, health aid on a ship and a plane would be arriving from Turkey in the next few hours. Mevlut Cavusoglu, the Turkish minister, told the Italian minister: “Italy is really important to us, my friend. For any help we are there.”
In Instambul in Turkey,a new hospital with 600 beds would be ready in advance because it is scheduled for May. The structure would have been built on top of another felled for safety reasons. The project would be financed by the Islamic Development Bank group with over 150 million euros. The number of places equipped with state-of-the-art intensive care machines and principals would be 99. Across the nation out of 10827 cases of positivity there would have been 168 deaths. The director of the Islamic Development Bank group Salah Jelassi said the health facility will serve as a center of excellence in cardiology and organ transplantation.
In Israel, the Ministry of Health reported two new deaths, in addition to the previous 16. A total of 18 people who have died and 4831 have died. The two dead women would have had previous serious illnesses. In Tel Aviv, Palestinian government spokesman Ibrahim Milhem said there would be one death in the 117 cases of positivity.
The task force monitoring the situation of the coronavirus in Moscow in Russia reported that 11 would be the number of deaths. Again, it is reported that patients had chronic diseases.
US President Donald Trump, after taking note of the approximately 2900 victims, announced that the measures in place to contain the transmission of the new coronavirus will be in place for another month, at least until 30 April. In this country, to date there are about 160,000 confirmed cases of positive patients. FORTUNE said that by the end of June, about 47 million people could lose their jobs. In New York, the HOSPITAL ship COMFORT would arrive with the mission of welcoming all non-positive people to the new coronavirus that needs health care to free up hospital beds. The ship can accommodate about 1000 beds.
Viktor Orban, the Hungarianprime minister, has received full powers from parliament. Under Hungarian law, he will be able to decide on everything, including whether to block elections and close parliament indefinitely. For the Socialists this would be the beginning of a dictatorship and for the nationalists of Jobbik’s party it would be a coup d’etat.
In the UK 22141 people would be infected with the new coronavirus and 1408 people would die. The epicentre would be particularly concentrated in London. Prince Charles, who tested positive for the virus in recent days, would have abandoned the quarantine in accordance with his nation’s regulations and after consulting his doctor. The 71-year-old heir to the throne is currently in his Scottish estate and is in excellent health, according to a CLARENCE HOUSE memo. Lord Sumption, a former Supreme Court judge, described the derbyshire police’s use of drones in county parks as “a disgrace.” To uniformed personnel with special powers at this time of emergency, the heads of law enforcement would have given indications that checks should be carried out consistently but without abuse, preferring in the first instance the weapon of “persuasion”.
The Deputy Minister for Civil Protection and Commissioner for the management of the Greek crisis Nikos Chardalias, after consulting with Mayor Konstantinos Zergas and the governor of the region of the Central Hellenic Macedonia Apostolos Tzitzikostas, would have placed the blockade in the waterfront resort of Thessaloniki in Greece. The ban would come into effect today from 2pm to 8am Monday to Friday and Saturday and Sunday all day. It should last for no less than 14 days.
In Germany,virologist Christian Drosten said there would currently be a mortality rate in this nation due to the virus at around 0.8. According to the same virologist, the low mortality would be due to the fact that, in his opinion, Germany is the country with the most places in intensive care in proportion to the world, that the problem has been identified very early and that many tests have been carried out (about 500 thousand per week). President Lothar Wieler of the German Robert Koch Insitut, however, seems convinced that the death rate will rise. Officially in Germany there would be 61013 positive people and 583 deaths.
In the capital of Tibet’sAutonomous Region, Lhasa, 214 places of worship would be reopened on the outskirts. Members should still present an ID, electrocini health codes or a medical certificate before accessing places of prayer. The situation in the central area of the city would be different, where the monasteries should remain closed until further notice.
In Spain there would have been a new spike in deaths caused by the new coronavirus and infections. At present the total number of deaths would be 8189 out of 94197 infections.
In Belgium, a 12-year-old girl would have died from the new coronavirus, which would be the youngest victim recorded so far.
In Iran, a newborn baby would have presented breathing difficulties within the first 24 hours that would be caused by infection with new coronavirus. He is currently breathing on his own and is being treated at the Imam Reza hospital in Mashhad.
China would make available 14 charter cargo flights for the shipment of medical equipment with the aim of helping European countries contain the spread of the virus. The first would take off from Xianyang airport in Xi’an and be headed to Leipzig, Germany. It would carry more than two million medical gloves and almost 31,000 protective clothing.
On the African continent there would be 47 countries officially affected by the virus out of 54. 172 people were reported to have died among the 5255 cases officially reported.
El Pais reportedly wrote that the WHO said that by the middle of this week, cases of new coronavirus could exceed one million worldwide. The johns Hopkins University contagio’s map would show that the number of infections in the world would exceed 800,000 individuals. The total victims would be about 38,000 and the healed would be almost 137 thousand.
March 30, 2020
The New York Times reports that the deaths reported in upstate New York in less than a month have reached 1000, pointing out that most of the deaths have occurred in recent days. To update this tragic bulletin the world numbers are increasingly disturbing, the deaths from coronaviruses in the world to date would be about 34,000 out of a total of infected about 780,000. This is the latest bulletin from Johns Hopkins University. There are about 152,000 people healed so far. In Spain, Russia and Iran, as in many other countries, contagions are multiplying like wildfire. In this Easter period, which for Catholics is a busy period of celebrations, everything will be changed. This year the liturgies for the most important holiday for Christianity will be celebrated behind closed doors, without a Procession of Good Friday, no baptisms, no washing of the feet, as stipulated by the decree promulgated by the Congregation for Divine Worship.
In Europe the dramatic collapse of air traffic continues due to the unprecedented restrictions imposed by the various European states, yesterday they would have flown just 3352 aircraft, so 88 less than last year, this means that there were 24,000 fewer flights.
In Italy, ferries have been suspended for Sicily and Sardinia and the Tremiti Islands of the Tirrenia company. In Lombardy, there would appear to be a decrease in the number of cases, but above all on the pressure on emergency services and the actions of ambulances.
The Syriangovernment would have extended until April 16 measures to contain the new coronavirus. A curfew would be in place from 6 p.m. to 6 a.m. and travel from one city to another would also be prohibited. Officially at the time there are known 9 cases of positivity to the virus.
March 25, 2020
Sadly, what looks like a war bulletin has increased, the infected, the deceased, have increased, but luckily it seems that those who heal are increasing too. All over the world there would be more and more infected. Prince Charles of England would have tested positive for covid-19. In Italy, 6820 people have died and more than 69,000 have been infected. In Spain there would be an increase in infections and deaths exponentially, yesterday alone there would have been 738 deaths in 24 hours. Other nations are beginning to introduce more stringent quarantine measures. People are afraid of contagion, but also of the future. We don’t know what economic conditions we’re going to be in when we get out of it.
March 22, 2020
A month ago on 22 February there was the first Italian victim of the coronavirus, a 70-year-old from Monselice, hospitalized in Padua. Since then we have reached 4,825 with 42,681 infected. In addition to the Italian numbers, those in the rest of the world are also truly impressive: 303,000 people are infected, almost 13,000 victims and it would be estimated that about a billion people are confined at home in dozens of countries around the world to try to containing the virus and that is frightening the acceleration of contagion in the continent most at risk in Africa. Spain would be close to collapse, with the numbers of infected and deaths constantly growing. Coronavirus sufferers would increase more slowly for now than in Italy and Spain, including in the rest of Europe.
In Italy, meanwhile, The President of the Council Conte, last night announced to the Italians new measures to try to counter even more the proliferation of the epidemic. Closure for all companies not of productions essential to survival and even more stringent measures in terms of people’s movements.
The Russian Ministry of Defense, announced that 9 aid aircraft are departing for Italy, there will be about 120 specialists among epidemiologists and virologists, Kamaz trucks for disinfection, field hospitals, 100 lung ventilators and about 500 thousand masks. The first 5 planes are expected to depart today and the other 4 are expected to depart tomorrow.
Below is the video of Council President Giuseppe Conte last night 21 March 2020.
March 17, 2020
According to Corriere della Sera, the death toll in Italy has risen to 2503, with 345 new deaths. There are 31506 people infected with coronavirus. This is the last budget released by the Civil Protection on Tuesday 17 March. Also today, the leaders of the 27 european Union countries approved the European Commission’s proposal to introduce a temporary restriction on all non-essential travel to the EU for a period of 30 days. Some large factories such as Yamaha Motors and Toyota have closed their European branches until at least 31 March. The Shrine of Lourdes also closes its doors for a period of time. Last night Emmanuel Macron announced to the French a new set of measures that involve the same restrictions decided first by Italy and then by Spain. After the President’s speech many would have attempted to leave the capital French before the measures of the traffic blockade came into force, scheduled for noon today.
From the Official Journal of the Italian Republic – Decree Law 17 March 2020 No. 18, and which came into force on 17 March 2020, all measures to strengthen the National Health Service and economic support for families, workers and businesses, related to the epidemiological emergency from COVID-19. For the full text, the official gazette of the Italian Republic should be referred to. In practice, for employees who are currently working and do not have an income of more than 40,000 gross per year, there would be a premium of EUR 100 for March 2020 to be compared to the number of working days worked at their workplace in the predicted month.
In addition, business operators should be granted a tax credit by 60% of the amount of rent in March 2020 to apply for a tax credit of 60% of the amount of the rent for March 2020.
March 13, 2020
After a few initial attempts it would seem that today the Italians have finally convinced themselves to stay at home
as much as possible. And with that it is hoped that the quarantine can be resolved as soon as possible. A lot of activities are
schools of every order and grade, even state offices and banks work at reduced hours. There is a silence
unnatural around, very few cars, in most law enforcement, very few people in the street.
But even in other nations after the WHO’s announcement of a pandemic, drastic steps are being taken to
counteract the virus. Schools of every order and grade are closed in Switzerland, Bavaria and Washington. In Austria the first red zones; following the Italian model the nation closes the shops leaving only the essential ones open. Spain declares a state of emergency. Meanwhile, more than 5000 coronavirus victims worldwide have more than 128,000 cases tested positive for the virus.
March 11, 2020
The President of the Italian Council made statements at a press conference in these hours to anticipate a further measure with more stringent restrictions that should be operational tomorrow. Rules would have been put in place for the closures of all activities except for basic necessities. Industries and factories will be able to continue their production activities provided that appropriate prevention measures are put in place. All necessary activities remain guaranteed and access to the proper functioning of the activities that remain open in accordance with the parent rule. “Limiting travel to the only reasons for need and health.” Premier Conte has stated that the first results cannot be intelligible in the coming days but only after a couple of weeks. “We must be lucid, measured, rigorous, responsible.” A Commissioner with high powers of exemption should soon be appointed in order to strengthen the production of appropriate equipment and to address the shortcomings found. The Commissioner should be Dr. Domenico Arcuri who can coordinate with Dr. Borrelli of Civil Protection. “The country needs the responsibility of each of us,” the Italian Prime Minister continues. The law should be available at this direct link or otherwise on the official gazette website.
9 March 2020
The President of the Italian Council adopts new rules due to an “important growth of infections, people in intensive care and sub-intensive care and also of deceased persons”. The new decree will be included in the official Italian gazette in the evening and will be enforceable from Tuesday 10 March 2020. The concept of zones within the country would be removed and therefore it could be moved for proven work, need and health reasons. The ban on assembly in open-air premises and public spaces will be added to the measure. Events and competitions such as the football championship will be discontinued including sports activities such as gyms. For travel, it will be necessary to provide a self-certification with absolutely truthful information. The self-certification form can be found on the website of the Italian Ministry of the Interior or here.
8 March 2020
In these hours the Italian Prime Minister held a press conference in which he announced the extraordinary new measures for health reasons present in the new decree signed a few hours ago. As stated in the press conference available below in this decree (the file is about 3 mega and therefore you have to wait a few moments for it to download), you can distinguish two areas. For the sake of convenience in exposing concepts and to avoid repetitions that can divert attention from the latter, we will first call the whole area Lombardy and then the provinces of Parma, Piacenza, Rimini, Reggio-Emilia, Modena, Pesaro and Urbino, Venice, Padua, Treviso, Alexandria, Verbano-Cusio-Ossola, Novara, Vercelli and Asti. The remaining portion of the Italian territory will be called the second area.
In all areas, conferences, conferences, meetings and meetings and social events involving health personnel would be suspended.
In the first area the restrictive measures are much stricter or “constraint to avoid any displacement, constraint for all individuals, inbound and outbound from the territory. Even within the territory. It will therefore only move for proven work needs and for health reasons. You are allowed to return to your home, home or residence for those who need it.” People with respiratory symptoms and/or fevers above 37.5 degrees Celsius should remain in their homes, limit social contact to the maximum and should contact their doctor. The Prime Minister also adds an outright ban on those subjected to the quarantine measure because they tested positive for the virus.
The decree would include, again in the first area, restrictive measures concerning commercial activities and aggregate events and in particular: events, sports competitions both in public and private places. Professional sporting events or absolute categories would be allowed behind closed doors or outdoors without the presence of the public. He suspended all events of a playful, cultural, sporting, religious and fairy nature organized and events in a public and private place. Suspended all events in cinemas, theatres, pubs, dance schools, arcades, betting rooms, bingo halls and nightclubs. Suspended teaching activities in schools and universities (remote teaching activities), civil and religious ceremonies (including funerals) are allowed. The openings of some suitable and organized places of worship would be allowed in such a way as to avoid assembling people. Museums and other cultural institutes are also closed.
Restaurant activities and bars would be allowed from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. as long as all the necessary measures are put in place by the operator to provide a distance between people of at least one meter (in case of violation the penalty provided would be the suspension of the activity).
As for the second area are suspended events, events, shows of any nature in every public and private place. Also suspended here were the activities of pubs, dance schools, playrooms, betting rooms, bingo halls, clubs and assimilated clubs, museums, institutes and cultural venues, events, sporting events (allowed outdoors without public or behind closed doors), travel of education, educational activities in schools and universities (allowed remote educational activities), study trips, twinnings, etc. The openings of bars and restaurants are allowed but with an obligation, even in this case, to enforce the minimum safe distance between individuals which is at least one meter (again, in case of violation, it would be provided for the suspension of activity). It also suspended sports competitions in public and private places (allowed behind closed doors or outside without the presence of the public).
It is important to point out that all measures in their totality and “officiality” are specified in the decree made available by the official media and this is only the reference to follow. The official publication will be published in the official gazette which in Italy discloses all official measures and laws and regularly enacted. In the past few hours, the “non-definitive” text of the “draft” of the decree to which changes have been made has been improperly circulated.
These measures are put in place with the aim of containing contagion and avoiding the overload of health facilities, some of which would already be in difficulty. The mandatory constraint of interregional solidarity has been put in place to redistribute people who need it in the various structures in the territory. The government would also sign a contract to prepare for the construction of intensive care and sub-intensive equipment. The Prime Minister stated that Italy already has 320 new equipment, which will soon be made available about 500 new equipment per month and that Italy is gearing up to increase the number of equipment and equipment individual production, otherwise also called IPR to ensure the health of citizens. An example of an individual production device are the famous “masks”. The government has also prepared itself for the necessary economic measures. The Prime Minister therefore urges the people to be confident that the emergency will be handled in the best possible way and that Italy will overcome this emergency status. The necessary checks will be carried out by the security forces in accordance with the provisions. There would in fact be no absolute ban on travel, which must be motivated for work or health reasons.
We believe it is important to stress that these measures are valid from 8 March to 3 April 2020 except for several or additive provisions.
March 6, 2020
According to the Ansa Agency, there are 91 countries and territories in the world affected by coronavirus, with a total of 98,387 confirmed cases and 3,383 deaths to date. That would be what emerges from the latest update of the picture provided by Johns Hopkins University, on the evolution of the virus. Meanwhile today there would have been the first death in the Netherlands. In Italy all schools of every order and grade are closed and even in France a hundred schools would be closed, in the department of the Upper Rhine.
In New York, 33 people are infected and at least 4,000 people in the entire state are in precautionary quarantine.
During the course of the Extraordinary Council of 27 Health Ministers, which was urgently convened in Brussels to manage and address the Coronavirus with ‘solidarity’, ‘coordination’ and ‘collaboration’, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and other Member States criticised the Franco-German nationalist line. France and Germany have blocked the export of precautionary sanitary materials to other European countries in order to boost their stocks at national level.
From China, Xiaomi reportedly sent a number of masks to Italian civil protection in order to help her manage the emergency.
March 5, 2020
The President of the Italian Republic issued a statement to the citizens anticipating the adoption of extraordinary measures for the introduction of new health personnel and to ensure the availability of the appropriate health facilities and tools. It reiterated the need to follow the instructions of the experts on the official website of the Italian Ministry of Health to help overcome the emergency, without recklessness but also without alarmism.
March 3, 2020
To date, the number of deaths from the new coronavirus would have exceeded 3,117 worldwide. More than ninety thousand would be infected. According to the Ansa agency the Tokyo Olympics could be moved at the end of the year due to coronavirus. In many countries around the world, those arriving from the countries most exposed to the infection will have to comply with a 14-day quarantine period.
According to Ansa, the G7 prepares measures – “Given the potential impact of coronavirus on global growth, we reaffirm our commitment to use all the most appropriate policy tools to safeguard growth from downside risks.” The G7 of finance ministers would write this in the final communiqué. Ministers would be ready to take measures, including budget where appropriate, to help the response to the virus and support the economy at this stage.
In China, meanwhile, the alert for Wuhan’s outbreak would be lowered. The country reported a further 125 new cases, the lowest level in six weeks.
Several nations would identify the first case of coronavirus, are Latvia, Indonesia, Morocco, Gibraltar, and India.
