Corona … injuries exceed 38 million and a half million, and…

The number of new cases of the new Coronavirus “Covid-19” has exceeded the barrier of 38 million and a half million infected globally, while French President Emmanuel Macron announced the imposition of a night curfew in Paris and a number of major French cities, starting next Saturday. According to the “World Meter” website, which specializes in monitoring numbers and statistics related to the Corona virus in the countries of the world, the number of infected people has reached 38 million 527 thousand and 441 infected.

The numbers indicate that the number of deaths reached one million and 92 thousand and 955 cases, while the number of people recovering from the virus reached 28 million and 948 thousand and 309 cases.

The United States leads the number of injured with 8 million, 100 thousand and 553 injured, while the deaths reached 221 thousand and 38 deaths.

In India – the second country in terms of the number of injuries in the world – the number of infections reached 7 million and 274 thousand and 966 injured.

And in third place in the world, Brazil came with 5 million 114 thousand and 823 injuries, while the death figures exceeded 151 thousand, to be ranked second in the world.

Measures and restrictions

In Europe, French President Emmanuel Macron announced this evening that his country will impose a night curfew starting from Saturday (between nine in the evening and six in the morning) in a number of major cities, including Paris, with the aim of confronting the second epidemic wave.

He said in a televised interview, “The curfew will last for four weeks, and we will go to Parliament to extend it until December 1. Six weeks is the period that seems to us useful.”

This comes with the high number of daily infections with the Coronavirus, as more than 26,000 cases were recorded last Saturday, and nearly 13,000 cases yesterday, Tuesday, and with the number of patients increasing again in the intensive care units of hospitals.

In Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel wants to impose new restrictions in Germany, including expanding the mandatory wearing of the muzzle, in light of the high number of new HIV infections in recent days.

It is planned to approve the timing of a compulsory closure of bars and restaurants that will last for 7 days in the event that the rate of injuries reaches 35 daily injuries per 100,000 residents, according to a draft agreement negotiated by the chancellor with the governors of the 16 German provinces today, Wednesday.

The Netherlands, which was less strict than its neighbor, imposed a “partial quarantine” as of Wednesday, which includes notably the closure of bars and restaurants in an effort to curb the spread of the “Covid-19” epidemic.

In addition to the mandatory wearing of the muzzle in closed spaces for those over the age of 13, the sale of alcohol was banned from eight in the evening.

And the semi-autonomous region of Catalonia, Spain, will close restaurants and bars for 15 days, starting from Friday, in an effort to stem the increase in infection rates with the Coronavirus.

And Regional Health Minister Alba Fergus announced the move today, Wednesday, which also includes the tourist city of Barcelona.

According to the latest data from the Spanish Ministry of Health, about 11,000 new infections were recorded in Catalonia over the past seven days, compared to about 7,000 in the previous weeks.

Strict procedures

In Portugal, the authorities decided to impose tougher measures from tomorrow, Thursday, to contain record increases in the rates of the Corona virus outbreak, including the imposition of tighter restrictions on gatherings and tightening penalties on institutions that violate the rules.

Portugal, home to about 10 million people, received praise at first for its rapid response to the pandemic, as it recorded fewer cases compared to other countries, amounting to about 90,000 and 2,110 deaths from the disease.

However, last week, the country recorded more than a thousand cases per day for the first time since April, and on Saturday, it recorded a record for the daily increase of 1646 injuries, as part of the increase in cases witnessed in Europe in general after the decline of the outbreak during the summer.

Meanwhile, the number of new cases of coronavirus in Switzerland and its neighbor Austria has reached unprecedented levels.

The Swiss Public Health Office recorded 2,823 new infections with the Corona virus during the past 24 hours, which is about twice the number of infections recorded the day before that.

The government in Austria said that the daily cases of infection recorded in the country have risen to a record level, amounting to 1,346 cases. And nearly a third of the new infections were recorded in the capital, Vienna.


Iraq and Tunisia

In the Arab world, the Iraqi Ministry of Health and Environment announced the registration of 3,857 new cases of Coronavirus, bringing the total number of people infected to 413,215 cases across the country, as well as recording 51 deaths.

In Tunisia, the Ministry of Health announced the registration of 2,234 cases between 11 and 12 October, bringing the total number of injuries to 34,790 cases.


Implications and warnings

In the context of the repercussions of the epidemic, the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, said that another 10,000 children may die each month this year due to malnutrition resulting from the repercussions of the “Covid-19” pandemic.

Speaking at a conference of the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), Ghebreyesus said that he expects an increase of 14% this year in the number of malnourished children due to the pandemic.

This means that another 6.7 million children will suffer from malnutrition, most of them in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

“The pandemic has caused serious imbalances in basic services, immunization, maternity services, child nutrition, family planning, and more,” Ghebreyesus said.

“We cannot accept a world where the rich can have healthy food, while no one cares about the poor,” he added.
