Up to 20 million people under COVID-19 curfew in France

Italy registered 10,010 new Coronavirus(COVID-19) infections over the past 24 hours, the health ministry said yesterday (16).

It is the highest daily tally since the start of the country’s outbreak and up from the previous record of 8,804 posted on Thursday.

The ministry also reported 55 deaths, down from 83 the day before and far fewer than at the height of the pandemic in Italy in March and April when a daily peak of more than 900 fatalities was reached.

When northern Italy became the epicenter of the pandemic in the spring, one urgent concern was that the country’s Coronavirus(COVID-19) outbreak would quickly spread to the less prosperous south and overwhelm under resourced regional health systems.

Some 20 million French people are preparing to spend their first evening under a new Coronavirus(COVID-19) quarantine curfew.

The measure was imposed after a surge in new Coronavirus(COVID-19) cases.

The 9pm to 6am curfew came into force at midnight on Friday in the Paris region and eight other large cities, affecting nearly a third of the country’s population.

The French government has defended the measure as the only way to avoid a lockdown, at a time when indicators assessing the Coronavirus(COVID-19) epidemic, such as deaths and hospitalisations, are deteriorating across Europe.

French health authorities on Friday recorded more than 25,000 new Coronavirus(COVID-19) cases, with 178 deaths.

Italy was the first country in Europe to be slammed by Coronavirus(COVID-19) and has the second highest death toll in the continent after Britain, with 36,427 fatalities and over 391,000 cases since the outbreak flared in February.
