Coronavirus update: 770,000 cases, 33,000 deaths | DW News



The number of infections worldwide has topped 700-thousand people, according to a new tally by the AFP news agency. Over 33,000 people have died.
As more and more countries impose lockdowns over the coronavirus, India faces a larger challenge than most. Its 1.3 billion people have been ordered to stay at home since last week. But for the informal workers who form the backbone of the economy, this means losing their income overnight – leaving many without enough money for food. And those hardest hit by the lockdown may now also be most at risk of catching the virus.
Other Coronavirus news:
– The US government’s top infectious disease expert is warning the Covid-19 pandemic could kill up to 200-thousand Americans. Dr. Anthony Fauci said millions could become infected.
– After a spike of infections in Japan, Japanese media are reporting authorities will begin banning foreign travelers from the US, China, South Korea and most of Europe.
– The price of oil has fallen to 23 dollars a barrel – the lowest since 2002. That’s becaus of plummeting demand due to the global economic slowdown.

    The one silver lining in India having so many deaths from this virus is that it rids that country of excess population, since India is horribly severely over-populated. It is one of the things that brings India down economically, and gives rise to its low standard of living and many poor people. It was only a matter of time that something like this would kill off the excess Indian population, they are so over-crowded and over populated for the limited resources and limited space India has.
    After the virus runs its course, those left will be the strong and healthy survivors that help the survival of their descendants, who will inherit the strong genes. This is what happened to the UK in the 14th – 17th centuries when the bubonic plague wiped out 30-50% of the population. Those who were left were the strong, and the standard of living and wages increased.

    We did better than so called developed countries and that's possible only because of people and good government.
    You should look into your country first.
    Don't worry about us.

    Seems like in India and every other overpopulated countries the only thing that they do is having sex to make babies, that is crazy…so many people…The Government should have a population control to allow couple to have only 1 child. The poorer a person is, the more children they make … ignorance.

    Let's make the existing medicines at home without waiting for testing and accepting hospitals, which are too short. This is a global crisis.

    In the short history of the nation state of India (since 1857) it has faced every problem from famine, pestilence, wars, civil unrest and never shut its economy down. This is a nation of 1 billion 300 million.
    To put this figure into perspective the population of the Americas (from Argentina to Alaska) is 1 billion. The population of Africa is 1 billion 150 million. The population of Europe is 771 million.
    India lost an estimated 20 million in the 1918 flu. At that time (British) India had a population of around 250 million and India never shut its economy down even in the face of this. In 1943 during world war 2 India lost 3 million to a famine and did not shut its economy down. By 1943 India's population was around 350 million. So far around 779 have died from COVID-19 in India. It makes no sense for New Delhi to shut down a continent sized nation like India. Even in Europe a nation like Sweden is open.

    The restrictions will kill far more than the national average. These emergency protocols in and of itself will destroy economics, and cause starvation and death. That's what the lockdowns will directly cause..The fact that mainstream media keeps sensationalizing and quoting numbers that are in fact false makes them responsible for reactions throughout. It's all and everything the UN Globalists have hoped it would be.

    @Ring Dave  you are a bloody fool man, there are 33 crore gods in india, whose numbers are more than the actual population of usa. I pity on your poor knowledge you fool. No god will come to any humans help irrespective of your prayer to either a one god or 33 crore god, because even god/gods in their region are severely affected by corona virus. All gods
    (Or one god )are busy amongst themselves in planning the escape roots from the tight grip
    of corona virus.!
