Associates of the British Prime Minister claim Johnson was taken for “for sure” checks. While Italy and Spain are seeing an improvement trend, the UK and US are expecting more aggression for next week. Sweden, on the other hand, lives almost without restrictions, but suffers from a high victimization rate
Coronavirus in the world: Brittany Prime Minister Boris Johnson was hospitalized 10 days after he was infected with Coronavirus. At the same time, trends in disease outbreaks are continuing: Italy and Spain are beginning to broadcast cautious optimism, but in the US and the UK are preparing for a spate of expansion within a week.
British Prime Minister Johnson’s evacuation to a hospital comes 10 days after it was reported that he had contracted the coronavirus. He was hospitalized for testing, and according to his associates, this is a step taken to be more secure – following the symptoms he is suffering from.
At the same time, Italy and Spain, the countries most severely beaten by the Coronavirus in Europe so far, are beginning to see little light with a slight trend of improvement. In Italy, the number of victims, as well as the number of patients hospitalized for intensive care, are falling. There is also an improvement trend in Spain – with less than 700 dead during the day.
In the UK, on the other hand, there is a serious fear of worsening the situation in the coming week. The country, which is estimated to be about two weeks behind Italy at the spread of the coronavirus, fears the coronavirus will receive a “throw-in” sponsor of the weather. The coming days are expected to be comfortable, which may loosen public discipline. Experts estimate the outbreak will reach April 12.
In the meantime, Queen Elizabeth will make a recorded speech on British media networks, addressing the nation following the Coronavirus crisis. The event is special and dramatic, as the Queen had only been there 3 times before in her 68 years in the palace.
The United States had a little more encouragement yesterday, with a lower number of dead during the day than last week. The situation is still severe – nearly 330,000 people have been infected across the state and more than 9,000 have died of the coronavirus, half of them from New York. It is estimated that within a few days the peak of the eruption will come. The White House chief physician warned of the Corona Pearl Harbor in the United States.
But despite the containment efforts, some states throughout the United States have no general directive for residents to stay in homes. Although there is a restriction on gatherings, there is an exclusion of prayer places. Experts warn of the outbreak, partly due to domestic flights – which still exist, allow free movement between countries and make efforts harder.
The Americans received a sweeping recommendation to walk around with masks, but in Coronavirus-battered New York there is not enough for all residents. To that end, the Chinese were enlisted to help and alongside the masks – sent about 1,000 respirators to New York to help eradicate the coronavirus.
And while all those countries are under curfew or approaching it, the one who stubbornly pursues another approach is Sweden. The Swedish model guides residents to continue life almost as usual: schools and workplaces are functioning, cafes, pubs and public spaces are all open and full of people, despite the coronavirus. “If I didn’t know there was a Corona, I would be sure it was a normal day,” said Liora Levian, an Israeli resident of Sweden.
Sweden is a country with about 10 million inhabitants, where about 6,000 people are infected at this time, but the death rate is high: 373 people so far. In the background of the numbers, the steps that have been taken are, however, the request of the elderly population in Sweden to stay in homes, and the directive for the other citizens to “exercise discretion.” The closure, according to the state’s chief epidemiologist, was not in sight.
Social remoteness seems to be no stranger to Swedes. “Their mentality is different,” said David Dahan, an Israeli who lives in Sweden. “Even on normal days, they keep a distance of between 3 and 5 meters, as much as possible,” he said. Unlike most residents, Dahan and his family decided to stay in home isolation, in the shadow of the trend in Israel, which is opposite to the one in Sweden, which calls for residents to shut themselves up in homes. “We are confused – wondering who the crazy is: Sweden that goes on as usual or Israel that stops everything,” wondered Liora Levian, a resident of Nantenburg.
In Sweden, they say they can handle the crisis, but hundreds of scholars argue the opposite – that the country is heading for a major disaster. “By the numbers – I think maybe they were wrong here with the freedom we were given,” said Sweden’s JNF President Max Pederman.
