While covid-19 continues to spread throughout the world, especially in the United States and Latin American countries, which are now the main focus of the virus, countries have declared “victory” over the virus, including France.
Today, more than 7.8 million people have been infected with the virus and 427.630 have died, based on the latest statistics on the spread of the pandemic in the world.
More than 210 countries around the world are infected by the virus, and the United States continues to top the list in terms of the number of injuries (more than 2.8 million) and deaths of the disease (more than 115 thousand), followed by Brazil with more than 850 thousand injuries, and more than 42 thousand deaths.
The number of new infections in America has reached records in a number of states, including Florida and Texas, while other states have continued their plans to abolish public isolation measures.
The states of Alabama, Florida and North Carolina recorded a record number of new cases for the third consecutive day, which many health officials in these states partially attributed to rallies in late May.
In France, praising his country for the “first victory” against the virus, president Emmanuel Macron announced an additional easing of the closure measures, including the reopening of cafes and restaurants with full capacity in the Paris region.
Macron said that “the fight against the epidemic is not over, but I am happy with this first victory against the virus,” declaring that the entire territory of France has fallen into the “green” classification.
In China – where the virus first appeared at the end of last year – authorities conducted large-scale tests Sunday to detect infections after the epidemic reappeared in the capital, Beijing, which required the issuance of travel warnings across the country, amid fears of an outbreak again.
