Coronavirus in Italy: Cuba, China and Russia send send medical aid | DW News

  • In Italy authorities said on Sunday that a further 651 people had died from the coronavirus. That’s fewer than Saturday’s record number of deaths, but is still the second-worst day so far. Italy has closed non-essential businesses to try to control the outbreak. And outside help is on the way. Doctors from Cuba and China as well as medical supplies from Russia have been dispatched to help support the overwhelmed medical system.

    Time to drawn some important observations, despite the three weeks lock-down in Italy, Covid-19 shows faint sign of decrease. Compare to Japan, two months from the first cases and as of now around 2000 REPORTED cases and not major quarantines. HYGIENE IS CRUCIAL! (wash your hands, disinfect surfaces and packages, wear mask, don't touch the front of the mask, don't touch your face).

    I hope that the virus will be defeated and the Italians (and indeed) recover. Then the Russians will return home from Italy. They will forget about the help and they will begin to shower us with sanctions again! Such allow for assistance from the Russians.

    I think China needs to send aid to the US for the damage they caused. Also, to all countries that are impacted China needs to take responsibility and send over the medical stuff because they created this mess.

    God will bless those people who are kind and grategul,Our China will not remmember ,Italy is the first one of EU countires and join in the One Belt One Road Initiative,I know that was a tough time because many western media try to smear and vilify the initiative,Italian's participation offered the great courage, motivation,and hope to China, Italian government gave the help and donations to Chinese government when the Corona outbreaks early time,I support Chinese gov. and glad to see Chinese gov. to help other countries with Corona outbreak,China need other counties,I know Chinese economic development is highly depend on the world economy, not only our China itself,The world economy is good,Chinese economy will be better.As a young man in Hubei province(so-called severely affected area),China,I suggest you don't go outside frequently,that is really important to help with you,my city shutdown begins from Jan.22-Mar.15,we get some donations from gov.,and shopping on the Internet.I am not a patriot, but I know my city in safe now is closely related to the strict shutdown policy,the affected patients is 36 even if the county with 550 thousand population.

    Russia, China, Cuba, the real axis of dictatorial evil, helps Europe fight the virus, but where are the freedom-loving Americans, the guardians of democracy? When it is profitable for them, they use Europe, and as soon as trouble happens, they are locked on their island, spitting on everyone else.

    Russia. China. Cuba. Our "enemies".
    Other EU countries did nothing to help us when they still didn't have critical situations. The US didn't send anything when they still had few cases. And then there's the EU, divided between Northern and Southern countries and useless, as always. Even the Italian government, which is mostly pro-EU, said better on our own. Europe now is a failure, but people in Bruxelles don't seem to realize it.

    weeks before I posted the following comments, Now I am repeating them)(Please read full comments and ask
    more and more people to read it)This is the biggest human tragedy. Is it
    possible that there is 'foul play'?
    Meaning is there a human factor in causing the already existing coronavirus to
    mutate, make it extremely virulent see it can propagate, reproduce, isolate it,
    colonize it and then introduce to bats or otherwise? I have feelings that it
    can be done in a sophisticated lab. This is not the time to point fingers who
    did it, but ask look what have you done! This is the excess of money which
    makes people blind. What fearing is not the virus itself but the fearful power
    of human mind. Excess of money does NOT make you rich What makes you rich is if
    you love mankind and you are Loving Peaceful and Truthful person. Then Khuda
    (God) loves you then you are Rich regardless of how much money you have.This
    event is the major sign of apocalypse and End days or Last days. Soon there
    will be Descent of the True Messiah. But what is the identity or recognition of
    the true Messiah? What Khuda (God) told me that there are few extremely
    important things to recognize the True Messiah. He must be Extremely
    intelligent genius , he must have
    achieved something is his life on his own MUST NOT OWN any property or estate
    or any piece of land, MUST have a SINGLE NAME (for example I have single name and that is Khalid). MUST
    be a believer in Major Prophets namely Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Mohammad and
    others. He must be truthful PEACEFUL and love mankind regardless of color, race,
    creed, origin religion. There are already many false messiahs around. So wait
    soon he will reveal himself. Thank you for reading all this.
