Italy’s total casualties from the Chinese coronavirus passed 1,000 on Thursday, far outpacing death rates for other European countries.
The southern European nation is ground zero for the virus in Europe. More than 15,000 people have been diagnosed with the disease, a figure that suggests the mortality rate of the condition is even higher in Italy than it is in the virus’ place of origin in Wuhan, China.
The death count was increased by 189 people in the past twenty-four hours, placing the latest figures released by Italian authorities at 1,016.
President Donald Trump included the pandemic-stricken country in a new travel ban announced on continental Europe Wednesday night, acknowledging that the spread of the pandemic is out of control throughout the European Union.
Several major regions in the north of the country have been placed under a mandatory quarantine. More than 16 million Italians are living under these conditions as of Thursday.
Chilling footage of Italian police instructing all citizens to remain in their homes surfaced earlier this week.

The Vatican has even ordered churches in the vicinity of Rome to be closed amidst the pandemic, underscoring the seriousness of the situation.

The European Union failed to enact restrictions on its conventional ‘freedom of movement’ system after the outbreak arrived in the country, suggesting that it’s possible the pandemic currently present in Italy could arise in neighboring European countries such as Germany, France and Spain.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo made the striking claim that the state was going to see a situation akin to that in Italy within the coming weeks during a press conference on Thursday.
Polish Election: National Conservative President Andrzej Duda Leads, Will Face Soros-Linked Liberal Challenger in Runoff
Poland’s President won the first round of the runoff.
Poland’s national conservative President, Andrzej Duda, will face liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski in a runoff election in July. Duda, of the Law and Justice Party, recieved a strong electoral plurality in the first round of elections, taking just under 44%. Trzaskowski recieved 30%, and will be the sole candidate competing against Duda in the runoff elections.
Trzaskowski favors further integrating Poland with the European Union, and has pitched his candidacy to global liberal western elites irritated by euroskeptic and nationalist sentiment in Poland. He’s attended the globalist Bilderberg Conference, and received a scholarship from the Soros Foundation in the early 90’s as a student.
Trzaskowski also led the movement within the country to resettle thousands of Middle Eastern refugees in Poland during the 2015 migrant crisis, a policy that was overturned after Duda took office that year.
Duda has campaigned on reforming the nation’s judiciary, resisting political imperatives from unelected European Union bureaucrats in Brussels(without calling for the Eastern European nation to leave the EU), and opposition to attempts to promote a western-style cultural agenda in Poland. Duda has spoken against the promotion of homosexual ideology in the country, comparing the previous generation’s experiences living under communism to the liberal agenda. “They didn’t fight for this so that a new ideology would appear that is even more destructive,” said Duda in a campaign rally earlier this month.
Various other political parties competed in the first round elections, including other right-wing and conservative parties, who marshaled approximately 9% of the vote combined. If Duda can unite voters inclined to vote for parties to the right of Law and Justice, he stands a strong chance to cruise to an easy victory with more than 50% of the vote.
