Coronavirus: The global response to another huge rise in cases – BBC News

  • 🎬 Video
  • ℹ️ Description
Around the world governments are battling to keep pace with the spread of the coronavirus. In Italy nearly 800 people have died within the last 24 hours, bringing the total of deaths there to 4,825. A lockdown to limit the spread has been in place for weeks. Now tougher measures have been introduced in the worst hit area of Lombardy, with the regional president announcing that from tomorrow all sport and physical activity outside, even on your own, will be banned.

The husband of a British woman - who died after testing positive for the Coronavirus whilst on holiday in Bali - has spoken for the first time of the devastation of his loss. Kimberley Finlayson who was 52, had underlying health conditions and had undergone two emergency operations in an Indonesian government hospital. Mr Finlayson said perhaps the outcome for his wife might have been different if she had been treated in the UK.

Presented by Kate Silverton, with reporting from Jeremy Cook and Sima Kotecha.

How can the BBC imply that the blame for this tragic death was on Indonesia without even investigating it? (PS.: I am not from Indonesia)

No media is enlightening enought how contagious and dangerous this virus is .
I am absolutely distraught from the blind eye each European government has shown and the lack of short, clear, incisive information from the media, like the fact that you can carry the disease without symptom and pass to others and the fact that you don't need to cought in face of someone .. you have just to breathe in the same space !!!
I m in the centre of Milan and the only sound I can hear are sirens .
No fun here . No silver lining .
Pls #stayhome . 🙏
