Storyline


The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases worldwide had reached 375,498 and the death toll from the disease reached 16,362 as of Tuesday night (1700 GMT), as the epidemic has spread in 195 countries and regions globally, according to the latest figures from the World Health Organization.

The pandemic continued to sweep across Europe, with the combined number of confirmed cases on the continent exceeding 200,000 as of Tuesday evening, accounting for half of known cases worldwide.

The coronavirus pandemic has claimed 6,820 lives in locked-down Italy as of Tuesday with the cumulative total number reaching 69,176, according to the new data released by the Civil Protection Department.

Speaking at a televised press conference, Civil Protection Department Chief Angelo Borrelli said Italy reported 5,249 new cases of coronavirus and 743 new deaths on Tuesday alone and that 54,030 people are currently positive for the coronavirus, one month after the pandemic broke out in northern Italy on Feb. 21.

Spain has the second highest number of coronavirus cases in Europe, only after Italy. The number of COVID-19 cases in Spain had risen to 39,373 on Tuesday, including 5,400 health workers, while that of deaths rose to 2,696 in a 24-hour span.

The confirmed cases and death toll in the capital Madrid reached 12,352 and 1,535 respectively, with a mortality rate of 12.4 percent. Its mayor Jose Luis Martinez-Almeida announced that Madrid will phase out other operations and focus resources on fighting COVID-19. A field hospital set up in the IFEMA exhibition center is now operational with 5,500 beds.

In neighboring France, the virus has claimed 1,100 lives while infection cases jumped to 22,300, Director-General of Health Jerome Salomon said on Tuesday.

A total of 10,176 people are now hospitalized, including 2,516 in intensive care, said Salomon in the daily briefing.

On March 17, France was put into lockdown for at least 15 days. Only really necessary trips for work, health and family needs or buying necessities are allowed.

In Britain, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 reached 8,077 as of Tuesday morning, according to the latest figure from the Department of Health and Social Care.

A total of 90,436 people have been tested across Britain, of whom 8,077 were confirmed positive, while 422 patients who contracted the novel coronavirus have died, said the department.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a series of measures on Monday evening to restrict social contact in Britain, so as to curb the spread of COVID-19.

In the United States, the number of COVID-19 cases topped 50,000 as of 15:00 U.S. Eastern Time on Tuesday (1900 GMT), according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University.

The fresh figure reached 50,206 with 606 deaths, the CSSE said.

The state of New York has become the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the country, with 25,665 cases reported. New Jersey and California have reported 2,844 and 2,267 cases, respectively, according to the center.

U.S. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he wanted the United States to be "opened up" by Easter, which falls on April 12 this year, despite warnings that doing so risks failing to contain the escalating spread of the coronavirus.

However, officials at the state level have been stressing the urgent need to focus on the public health crisis, rather than thinking about resuming economic activities prematurely.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe announced on Tuesday that Japan and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) have agreed to postpone the Tokyo Olympic and Paralympic Games until no later than the summer of 2021.

Abe made the announcement after a teleconference with IOC chief Thomas Bach, putting an end to two-month speculation over the future of the Games since the outbreak of coronavirus in late January.

Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said at a press conference that the postponed Games, to be held in summer 2021, will still be called 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Japan's health ministry and local governments said Tuesday the total number of people infected with COVID-19 in Japan stood at 1,141 as of 11:00 local time.

The death toll in Japan from the pneumonia-causing virus currently stands at a total of 52 people, according to the health ministry. The figure includes those from the virus-hit Diamond Princess cruise ship that was quarantined in Yokohama, close to Tokyo.

In India, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday announced a "countrywide lockdown" for 21 days, beginning midnight Tuesday.

He urged his countrymen to stay inside their homes and not take the risk of venturing out.

All road, rail and air services will remain suspended during the lockdown, which came into force early Wednesday. Essential services like medical shops, petrol pumps, grocery stores, milk booths, and online shopping are exempted from the lockdown.

Though the prime minister assured that there would be no dearth of essential supplies across the country during the period of lockdown, Indians flocked into the supermarkets to stock food immediately after the speech of Modi.

The number of confirmed COVID-19 cases across the country rose to 562, including 519 Indians and 43 foreign nationals by 9:15 Wednesday , the federal health ministry said.

Ten persons have died of the disease so far, with one reported on Tuesday.

The United Arab Emirates (UAE) on Tuesday recorded 50 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number of infections to 248, the health ministry said.

All the new cases are in stable condition and are receiving the necessary medical care, the ministry said.

The UAE was the first among the Gulf countries to report COVID-19 cases.

The UAE authorities have taken strict measures to prevent and control the pandemic. The government ordered to close all public beaches and all major shopping centers except pharmacies and supermarkets. Restaurants only offered food delivery service and people were asked to stay at home.

In Brazil, the death toll from COVID-19 has climbed to 46, with a total of 2,201 people infected, the Brazilian Health Ministry said on Tuesday.

Of the 46 fatalities, 40 were in Sao Paulo, the country's most populous state, and six in Rio de Janeiro.

To contain the COVID-19 spread, the entire Sao Paulo state has been placed under quarantine for 15 days starting from Tuesday. A total of 645 cities and towns including Brazil's most populous city San Paulo are under quarantine.

Hit by the outbreak, Brazil's Ministry of Economy cut its GDP growth forecast for 2020 from 2.1 to 0.02 percent. Experts predict that the lockdown of Sao Paulo state will have more negative effects on the national economic development.
