The United States tops the list of countries most affected by the virus, with 164,798 cases recorded, Italy comes second with 101,739 cases, and Spain is in third place with 94,417 cases, while China, which is the source of the epidemic, is the fourth country with 8,1518 infected people.
An Italian health official stated that the new infection rate with the Coruna virus continues to decrease in the Lombardy region, which is considered the most affected by the disease in the country, with 381 new deaths recorded.
He added that the general outcome of those infected with the virus rose in the region by 1047 cases, and reached 43,208 infections, in a remarkable decline in the frequency of increasing infections compared to the past 3 days, where Saturday monitored 2117 cases and Sunday 1592 new infections, while this indicator reached Monday 1154.Italy is the first country in the world in terms of the number of deaths from the infection of the emerging corona virus by 11591 cases, and the second in terms of the number of cases of the disease by 101739 cases, while the northern Lombardy region is the most affected by the epidemic in the country. Since January 2020, the world has been facing an unprecedented crisis caused by an outbreak Corona infection, which started spreading since December 2019 from Wuhan, China and led to huge losses in many sectors of the economy, especially transport, tourism and entertainment, the collapse of global exchanges and the acceleration of the decline in energy markets.
European countries saved 120 thousand people with corona, including 38 thousand in Italy
The research confirms that up to 120,000 deaths have been prevented in 11 countries, including the United Kingdom, Italy and Spain.
“Of course it is a difficult time for Europe, but governments have taken important steps to ensure that health systems are not overburdened. There is strong evidence that these steps are starting to bear fruit, and that the spread of the virus is receding,” said Dr. Samir Bhat, report supervisor and senior lecturer at the School of Public Health in London. .
He added: “We believe that many lives have been saved. However, it is too early to say whether we have been able to fully control the epidemics and more difficult decisions will have to be made in the coming weeks.”
For his part, Dr. Seth Flaxman, one of the researchers who prepared the report, considered that although the number of deaths from the virus continues to rise, the data shows “sufficient evidence that the continuous and intensified measures taken by European governments have already saved lives by reducing the number of new infections every day.” “.
Blackman criticized some countries’ delay, without name, in dealing with the virus, noting that this matter made us need a longer period to confront the virus and reduce the number of infected people and deaths, “It takes a longer time from days to weeks for these effects to be reflected in the number of deaths Everyday. ”
The report shows that with the continuation of the current interventions, those measures in the 11 European countries will avoid 141,000 deaths as of March 31, and the report emphasized that this will be done by keeping the interventions in place until the transmission of infection drops to low levels.
In addition to reducing deaths, the report estimates that between 7 and 43 million people were infected with the virus in all 11 countries as of March 28, which represents between 1.88% and 11.43% of the population.
