The Corona epidemic has so far claimed at least 33,244 lives and infected nearly 700,000 in 183 countries and territories, while strict measures are continuing across the world to limit the spread of the deadly virus.

On Sunday, there were 3,241 additional deaths and 56,973 new infections worldwide.

Italy continues to lead the countries of the world in terms of total Corona deaths, reaching 10779, followed by Spain, with 6,500 deaths, then China with 3,304 deaths.

While a glimmer of hope appeared in Italy after recording a decrease in the number of injuries and deaths, the American President warned his citizens of the heavy human losses during the next two weeks, while the virus hit the heart of politics in Britain and paralyzed the government after infecting its president and a number of its members.

The number of new deaths caused by the Corona virus has decreased in Italy for the second consecutive day.

The Civil Protection Authority said that the number of deaths reached 756 in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths to 10779, which is about a third of the total number of deaths due to the virus worldwide.

The new Sunday registered number is 133, less than the number of deaths recorded on Saturday (889), which was also less than the record number recorded by the authorities on Friday at 919.

The total number of confirmed cases in Italy Sunday increased to 97,689 from 92,472 cases, recording the lowest daily increase in the number of new cases since Wednesday.

Although Italian officials hope that the downward trend of cases will continue, restrictions on all unnecessary activities will likely extend.

"Inevitably ... the measures scheduled to expire on April 3 will be extended," Minister of Regional Affairs Francesco Bocha told SkyTaj 24.

He added that the timing will be determined by Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and the government based on the data of the medical and scientific sector.

"I think it would be inappropriate and irresponsible to talk about reopening (schools and production sites)."

Troubled days await the Americans
On the other hand, US President Donald Trump expected that the United States would witness the highest death rate in the next two weeks.

"There will be a huge loss before the victory over the virus and the next two weeks, and we will continue our battle against it," Trump said.

According to Johns Hopkins University, the Coruna virus killed 2467 in the United States, and infected more than 140,000, ranking first in the world in terms of the number of infections.

The US President said work is underway to produce a vaccine against the Coronavirus. He added, "We have a lot of research on treatment with blood plasma and we have reached good results in cooperation with some countries."

He pledged to provide 50,000 test equipment to diagnose Coronavirus, and said, "We conduct tests for about 100,000 people daily and are working closely on providing medical equipment to states."

In China, where the virus first appeared last December, authorities announced on Monday morning four deaths and 31 new cases of the Coronavirus, taking the number of deaths to 3,304 and infections to 81,470.

Isolated government
In Britain, British Minister of Housing Robert Jenrick said that all parts of the country have been in a state of emergency unlike any other since World War II to fight the Corona virus, and that strategic coordination centers have been set up across the country.

The measure was taken amid warnings that infection rates are increasing rapidly, while new figures revealed on Sunday that the total number of deaths from the virus has reached 1,228 deaths in Britain.

The Corona virus has struck the heart of British politics, infecting the Prime Minister and many of its members.

Hours after British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced that he was infected with the Corona virus last Friday, the Minister of Health said he had the virus, and the chief medical advisor in England had also announced symptoms of the disease, and tests had shown that infection had been infected by the European Union chief negotiator, Michel Barnier.

The question on many people's tongues at Downing Street and outside the government headquarters is how many other people did the Prime Minister mix with before testing showed that he was HIV positive?

Johnson is the first leader in the world to have a Covid-19 respiratory disease caused by the emerging corona virus.

There is no way to know whether members of the British government have transmitted the infection to each other or whether they have contracted it from someone or other people.

For politicians, who may meet hundreds of people daily, the Corona virus crisis requires a balance between appearing publicly to lead their own people while keeping the spacing a safe distance.

Earlier, a Johnson spokesman said the prime minister had not come very close to anyone "from the moment he showed symptoms."

It is noteworthy that the British Royal Palace announced earlier that Prince Charles was infected with Corona virus.

In France, the latest figures indicate that 292 additional deaths were recorded in the Corona virus, which raises the total death toll in this country to 2606, while the number of infections rose to more than 19,000.
