“We have now declared a national state of disaster in terms of the Disaster Management Act. This will enable us to have an integrated and coordinated disaster management mechanism that will focus on preventing and reducing the outbreak of this virus. We will also be able to set up emergency rapid and effective response systems to mitigate the severity of its impact,” he added.

Countries like Italy things are too bad , Italy reports 368 coronavirus deaths in 24 hours. In Africa it is not as bad as in Europe , Spain already imposed a national wide lock-down and Spain reported 2,000 new cases .

The Serbian Government deployed the army to guard hospitals and help in closing up public places . You can see that many countries are trying to shutdown to protect their lives . Many countries without cases are also shutting down they do not want no regrets .

Iran is in a very dangerous position due to heavy US sanctions which makes it so difficult for the country to fight the virus . The virus have killed 724 people in Iran.
