Manuel Franco, professor and professor of epidemiology at the University of Alcalá de Henares, said: “We have definitely not entered the March to April situation, but There is reason to worry that we will get there again.”
On Monday, the Madrid authorities put parts of the capital region back into closed areas, affecting approximately 850,000 residents. Critics say this and the re-epidemic of the virus have caused fierce condemnation. Critics say the government wasted the hard-won achievements of its first blockade by opening up national borders to revitalize its battered tourism industry.
In Germany, where the ability to deal with the virus is better than many of its neighbors, people are concerned about the surge in infections, but less attention is paid to hospitalization. In recent weeks, 9396 people have been infected with the virus, of which only 267 require intensive care, and more than half of them are on respirators.
German Health Minister Jens Spahn told the ARD public television station: “We know more than six months ago.” He pointed out that Germany’s testing capabilities, protective equipment and intensive care beds have been increasing.
The United Kingdom, like Germany, has made progress in another round of fighting to strengthen the national health service system, but it lags far behind Germany in establishing a nationwide testing and tracking system. On Thursday, it finally launched a troubled smartphone app in England and Wales, hoping that the app can better track the virus.
Chief Medical Officer Chris Whitty said that the number of people hospitalized with the virus in the UK doubles every 7 to 8 days, and the number of deaths will double, “possibly exponential growth.” Chief scientific adviser Patrick Vallance said that if the virus spreads uncontrollably, it could cause 50,000 new cases per day by October and 200 deaths per day by November.
