A Ghanaian based in Italy has described the Italy coronavirus outbreak as a situation out of hand.
The Ghanaian who only gave his name as Daniel said the situation is ”terribly bad” and the only hope for them now was God.
He disclosed on ‘Ghana Kasa’ that the remains of the dead have filled churches and other buildings
The Northern part of Italy he stated recorded over 34, 200 cases with 4, 460 deaths whereas 6, 250 cases were recorded in the Central part with 312 deaths.
In the Southern part, infected persons were more than 2, 231 with 69 deaths, he added.
He told Uncle Bright if the authorities had taken measures to prevent further spread and deaths, we would not have recorded the huge figures.
Daniel said the decision to send the dead bodies to churches and factories was because mortuaries were full.
Retired health workers, medical students who are still in school have all been assigned roles to help deal with the crisis, he said.
More than 60 percent of the latest deaths occurred in the northern region of Lombardy, whose hospitals have been reeling under a staggering case load that has left intensive care beds hard to find and respirators in short supply.
On Sunday, Italy anounced 651 dead in one day, bringing its total to 5,476.
It was an increase of 13.5 percent but down from Saturday’s figure when 793 people died.
Using the Italy situation as an example, he asked Ghanaians not to take the situation for granted but take the precautionary measures seriously.
He warned Ghana could have its cases escalate should we take the crisis for granted.
He admonished all experts irrespective of their party colours to assist in dealing with the crisis.
