Unstoppable Covid-19

The world is not seeing any respite from Covid-19. Already, it has infected 187 countries and yesterday, the total number of infections passed the 300,000 mark. 

Prominently, Italy is getting sicker and sicker.

There was a 13.9 percent increase in the total number of infections from a previous 47,021 to 53,578, the country's Civil Protection Agency said on Saturday. And the death toll has leapt by 793 to 4,825  by far the largest daily spike in absolute terms since the contagion emerged a month ago.

The rest of the world is not much better. Including Malaysia.

Yesterday marked the seventh consecutive day of three-digit increase in Covid-19 cases, bringing the total tally to 1,183. 

Eight people have died so far – a 60-year-old pastor from Emmanuel Baptist Church in Kuching, Sarawak and the other seven were all linked to the tabligh gathering at Masjid Jamek, Sri Petaling in Kuala Lumpur.

Unstoppable Covid-19.
