Updates Regarding COVID-19 In Various Parts Of The World

Places that Have Been Most Affected by Coronavirus 

 ITALY

 Italy has faced it is the gravest moment as mentioned by its prime minister, he continues by saying that Italy faced this type of gravest moment since the second world war. The death toll from COVID-19 in Italy has risen at a higher percentage.
On Saturday’s figure 793 people died due to the virus totaling to 4825 while on Sunday the figure totaled to 5476 after 651 rises of death cases. It was an increase of 13.5 percent. 
The total number of cases in Italy has increased to a total of 59138 rising with 10.4 percent from a total of 53578.

Italy is highly affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) since a higher percentage of its citizens are aged. 
It is disadvantaged since odder people and people with chronic illness are at a higher risk because they are vulnerable to the worst effect of the virus. 
Their immune may be worn to fight the virus if affected. These doesn’t mean that COVID-19 cannot affect younger age.
All are requested to stay indoors and quarantine themselves to be in a safer position.

KENYA

Kenya Has Confirmed 8 More Cases of COVID-19

On 13th March Kenya had their first victim of coronavirus who had traveled from the US via London. These resulted in the health ministry to suspend public gatherings, meetings, religious events, and games. 
On 15th, they confirmed two more cases. President Uhuru Kenyatta ordered the closure of schools and urged the Kenyans to work from home to avoid the spread of the disease. 
On 19th March, four more cases were confirmed resulting in a total of seven victims. 
On the 22nd of March, there are more eight cases confirmed who tested positive bringing the number to a total of 15 victims. Kenyans are at the shock and are advised to stay indoors.
The cabinet secretary urged Kenyans those who are traveling outside the country should understand that the virus is a threat to the country and they should quarantine themselves to avoid the spread of the disease. 
He continues by saying that it is an offensive act to claim that you will quarantine then you refuse to do so. Those who do not will be quarantined forcibly and be jailed for a term.
It is very shameful of Kenyans being urged to stay indoors for their own safety but they take everything for granted. 
Ignorance of Kenyans resulted in police officers using tear gases and beating up protestors after the forcible attempt of closing a crowded market in Kisumu. Kisumu county governor Anyang Nyong’o had ordered the police to do so. 
Traders then started protesting that they no longer need their governor. 
Citizens have not come to their senses and realize how this virus is a threat to our lives and our future. 
It is understandable that 60% of Kenyans need to work every day so as to get their basic needs, most of them have no savings to cater to their needs. 
Kenyans should be aware of the virus and the harm that it can cause, they should improve the level of preparedness for the disease.

CHINA

China is coming up with measures that can aid them in identifying new cases, these include diverting of flights and arrive in Beijing where passengers will undergo virus screening so as to avoid more spread of the virus that the passengers might be infected from outside China.
USA

In USA, the first case emerged from a 35-year-old man who had traveled from Wuhan in China and returning to Washington State and thereafter it has spread almost every state whereby new cases are emerging each and every day. 
The citizens are advised to stay home until further notice, avoid restaurants, bars and gatherings and those who violated the orders are charged with a fine. 
Airports are in pandemonium, schools are closed, and hospitals are preparing for a tsunami of patients, repurposing their facilities for coronavirus patients and adding extra beds
