As the Coronavirus Spreads All over the World, China Reports Just 36 New Confirmed Cases.
The latest figures from the John Hopkins COVID Resource Centre offer a grim view of the progress of the virus. As of Saturday, November 7, there are a staggering 49.5 million people worldwide infected with the coronavirus. The good news though is that so far 32.5 million have recovered, but sadly, however, 1.24 million have died as a result of the disease.
Conspiracy theories abound as to the actual cause of the pandemic, everything from a cover by the Chinese government to a lab accident has been banded around since the crisis reared its ugly head. This latest development is likely to cause as much of an outrage as the crisis for China is dissipating, with only (considering the size of the population) just over 92,000 confirmed cases left.
China bans arrivals from international visitors.
China is temporarily suspending the entry of nationals from the UK, Belgium, France, Russia, Italy, Ukraine, Ethiopia, Bangladesh, and the Philippines, including visa or residence permit holders, citing the COVID-19 pandemic. The announcement was made separately by the Chinese diplomatic missions in the four countries on Thursday.
