Spain Overtakes China in Coronavirus Death Count; Italy Doubles China – March 25, 2020
Today, March 25, 2020, it has been reported that the death toll directly related to coronavirus spread in Spain has now caused more deaths than in China, with Spain at 3,434 deceased and China at 3,285 deceased. This includes a staggering 738 deaths that occurred within Spain in the past 24 hours.
In Italy, the situation is still dire – 6,820 COVID-19 related deaths have occurred, more than double that of China. The complete lockdown in Italy has recently inspired other countries to implement similar guidelines. Today, India has entered into a complete lockdown for 21 days to prevent the spread of coronavirus among its population of 1.3 billion people. “There will be a total ban on venturing out of your homes,” Prime Minister Narendra Modi said when he addressed the nation over television.
With so many people working in hospitals to help patients, as well as others, helping to maintain the spread of the virus in Spain, 14% of all their 39,673 cases are in fact healthcare workers. To make the situation worse, doctors and nurses are complaining about the lack of basic protective equipment which has caused them to ration crucial supplies, and to even craft protective shields out of plastic bags. Spain has now requested medical supplies from NATO, which includes 450,000 respirators, 500,000 testing kits, and 1,500,000 surgical masks.
The United States of America is now at 55,148 confirmed cases with 26,376 being confirmed in the state of New York alone. It took 67 days for the world to reach the first 100,000 cases, and even now the coronavirus pandemic continues to accelerate – it took only four days for the latest 100,000 cases to hit. The worldwide phenomenon of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused 20% of Earth’s population to live under lockdown just months after the first case was reported.
