Photos: Italy's Situation Is a Wake Up Call for Our African Countries

Many reasons are enough to say that our African leaders need God intervention so that they can stand up and see the depth of this Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

People are really playing with thr issue, but if you take a look at the countries that have been hit badly then you may-be the one would understand the threshold of this matter.


Italy's history covers the Ancient Period, the Middle Ages and the modern era. In antiquity, Italy was the homeland of the Romans and the metropole of the Roman Empire. The Roman Republic then unified Italy at the expense of the Etruscans, Celts, and Greeks of the peninsula.

Let's take an example of the situation in Italy. The situation there is disheartening and would make one to shade tears till end of hisife. The country is now arguably Europe's main hub for coronavirus infections and deaths on daily basis.

The country faces a very pandemic health situation which is always getting worse. More people have moved to liken Italy to the island of Molokai where many lepers were confined during the outbreaks.

The number of infections going up and have recently surpassed China, origin of the Covid-19. Presently the country is the most affected in the world behind only the America.

More over the health Minister has reported over 9,000 deaths from over 90,000 reported Covid-19 cases. 

Italy now is under lockdown with almost businesses shutdown. Only Pharmacies and food supermarkets have been allowed to operate under strict guidelines of allowing a limited number of people.

Financial institutions, such as banks have also been closed. One is now forced to pass through police and Italian army checkpoints which are everywhere.

There's no freedom with drones flying over to spy on those who try to go out. Presently there are large number of soldiers on the streets than ordinary citizens in Italian cities.

The country (Italy)has been hit so so bad, that even hospitals in the cities are said to have an insufficient number of sanitary protective masks, gloves and bactericidal gels for sanitizing.

Workers however are still forced to do their jobs. These are men and women working to save innocent lives while putting their own lives at risk by exposing themselves to infection in their duty line.

The deaths numbers continues to increase everyday. It is reported that in Italy right now the doctors have to vote who to save in the hospital rooms.

Sometimes Patients with feverish symptoms are forced to return home due to lack of space and resources to hospitalize them. The situation is worsening with older patients becoming heroes by refusing the respirators to give it to younger sufferers every single day.

Italy's population.

The current population of Italy is 60,484,505 as of Saturday, March 28 , 2020, based on Worldometer.
