The situation in Italy is terrifying.
Please tell us in detail about the recent spread of Corona 19.
Yes, Italian health officials said that the number of new confirmed cases on the 5th day at the local time was 24,363.
On a daily basis, it was the highest in three months since the end of November last year.
As a result, the cumulative number of confirmed cases in Italy exceeded 3 million.
If you look at the international statistics website World Omometer, there are about 3023,000 people as of 10 am.
Italy’s cumulative number of confirmed cases exceeded the 3 million mark only one year and one month after the first local infection was reported in February last year.
So far, it is the eighth country with a cumulative number of confirmed cases of 3 million people worldwide, after the United States, India, Brazil, Russia, the United Kingdom, France and Spain.
In Italy, mutations from the UK are spreading rapidly in recent years, and the overall number of corona patients is on the rise.
Since the 1st of this month, it has risen for 5 days in a row, and since the 3rd, it has reached the 20,000 mark for 3 consecutive days.
Some experts have analyzed that the third epidemic has already begun.
The World Health Organization’s European office also expressed concern about the spread of Corona 19 in European countries including Italy?
Yes, Hans Cluj, head of the WHO Europe region, warned that the number of new cases in Europe has been declining for the sixth consecutive week and then increasing again.
The WHO classifies the European region into 53 countries, including Russia and some countries in Central Asia.
Cluj said the number of new cases in Europe increased by 9% last week to more than 1 million, ending the six-week decline.
It explains that the number of new cases increased in more than half of 53 countries.
Countries showing a relatively larger increase are Italy, France, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary and Poland.
Director Cluj has repeatedly called for increased alertness and response to the mutant virus, which is known to be more infectious.
So far, the International Department has delivered it.
