Coronavirus update: Italy struggles to combat 'tsunami' of cases | DW News 5
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.

MY EXPERIENCE:
Stay at home, wash your hands, put on mask all the time if you have to go outside. I come from China, I and my family stayed at home for over 7 weeks and, we are healthy now, there is no case in my village because the volunteering isolation.

China has a lot to answer for when this is hopefully over.From letting illegal wet markets operate with no regards to public health to suppressing the news of spread of covid-19 until it was too late.
