  • List of Nations Affected by Coronavirus in Euro-area

With coronavirus rising across Europe as the world struggles to curb a new outbreak that could hurt global growth in 2020 and plunge Italy into an economic recession, here is the list of nations affected by the Novel Coronavirus.

– ITALY –
With 14 deaths and 528 infections, Italy is by far the European country worst affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. It has also been a point of contagion with many cases in other countries involving people who returned home after travelling in infection-hit areas of northern Italy.

Israel on Thursday began turning away foreign nationals who arrived on flights from Italy to contain the virus’s spread.

– GERMANY –
In Germany, 26 people have been infected, including 10 diagnosed since Tuesday. Fourteen of the 26 work for an equipment manufacturer in Bavaria, and were infected by a colleague returning from China. Several hundred people are quarantined in their homes.

– FRANCE –
France has so far registered 18 infections and two deaths, and has urged its nationals to delay travel to virus hotspots in northern Italy. Students returning from China, Singapore, South Korea and the Italian regions of Lombardy and Veneto are asked to remain at home for two weeks after their return.

– SPAIN –
Spain has registered 17 cases – 15 of them since Monday. Twelve are linked to Italy.

They include four Italians who were visiting Tenerife in the Canary Islands. The hotel where they were staying has been quarantined.

Three cases have been registered on the Spanish mainland, including one man in serious condition in the Madrid region.

– BRITAIN –

Britain has thus far recorded 15 cases, including two announced on Thursday: one patient had been in Italy and the other in Tenerife. The government has requested travellers returning from affected areas in northern Italy, China, South Korea and Iran to isolate themselves and inform authorities.

– SWITZERLAND –
Switzerland has registered four cases since Tuesday, including a man in his 70s who was infected near Milan.

– RUSSIA –
Two infected Chinese citizens have been treated in Russia, which has also repatriated and quarantined eight passengers from the Diamond Princess cruise ship, of whom three have tested positive.

– AUSTRIA –
A 72-year-old man in Vienna tested positive on Thursday, making him Austria’s third case after an Italian couple, both 24, tested positive on Tuesday.

The Innsbruck hotel where the Italian woman worked as a receptionist was initially placed on lockdown but the measure was lifted late Tuesday following tests. Austria has urged its nationals to avoid visiting affected areas of neighbouring Italy.

– CROATIA –
Three people have tested positive for the virus, including a young man who recently stayed in Italy and his brother. A third case was detected Wednesday in a man who works in the Italian city of Parma.

– GREECE –
Greece has announced three cases — all Greeks who had recently returned from northern Italy.

Athens announced its first infection Wednesday, a woman aged 38. Two more were announced on Thursday, including a 10-year-old.

All three affected are Greek nationals.

The authorities have cancelled carnival celebrations planned for this weekend.

– FINLAND –
Two virus infections were confirmed Wednesday — a Chinese tourist in Lapland and a second case involving a Finnish national who had recently visited northern Italy.

– SWEDEN –
Two cases have been detected so far. One was registered at the end of January: a woman who had visited Wuhan, the Chinese city where the virus emerged in December. On Wednesday, a second infection was discovered — in a man returning from northern Italy.

– BELGIUM –
One case was detected in a Belgian national who was repatriated from Wuhan in early February.

– DENMARK –
Denmark announced its first case on Thursday — a man returning from a skiing trip to northern Italy. His wife and son tested negative. He is described as not in danger, and the family is being confined to their home.

– GEORGIA –
Georgia on Wednesday announced the first confirmed case of the novel coronavirus in the South Caucasus region.

– NORTH MACEDONIA –
One case has been detected – a woman who recently returned from Italy.

– NORWAY –
Norwegian health authorities announced Wednesday the first case of the new coronavirus in the Nordic nation in someone who returned from China last week. They said the patient was not in danger.

– ROMANIA –
Romania reported its first case on Wednesday – a man who was in contact with an Italian who visited the country last week.

Military Storms Bobi Wine House After He Rejects Election Results

Robert Kyagulanyi, popularly known as Bobi Wine, Ugandan presidential candidate in the just concluded presidential race, said the Ugandan military has surrounded his house and even jumped over the fence to take over the compound.

In a quick tweet, the opposition presidential candidate said “My home has been surrounded by soldiers, they’ve jumped over the fence, they’ve taken over my compound, they’ve arrested my security guard.

The invasion was after Bobi Wine had rejected election results and alleged that Thursday’s election was rigged.

He said “every legal option is on the table” to challenge the official results, including peaceful protests. He referred to himself as the “president-elect.”

None of these military intruders is talking to us. We are in serious trouble. We are under siege,” wrote Wine, who was arrested several times during campaigning but never charged while dozens of party members were detained.

Museveni government had cut internet access on the eve of the largely peaceful election day, and it remains off.

According to Uganda’s electoral commission, President Yoweri Museveni leads Wine 62 percent of ballots while Wine had 29 percent. The commission expects to declare the final results on Sunday afternoon.

“We secured a comfortable victory,” Wine said. “I am very confident that we defeated the dictator by far.” He was considering “peaceful and nonviolent protests” over the declared results and said “every legal option is on the table.” Candidates can challenge election results at the Supreme Court.

Heartbroken American Mistress Displays Dangote’s Buttocks in a Viral Video

2021 started with Dangote trending across social media after an obvious heartbroken American mistress shared her relationship with the world’s richest black man.

Bea Lewis, a restauranteur based in Atlanta, Georgia, US, took to her Instagram @iambealewis to share her experience dating the richest black man alive and how he broke her heart into 1000 pieces.

In her words, she said “In my 33rd year, I dated the richest black man in the world. He broke my heart in 1000 pieces.” 

She explained that “I learned more from him than any person I’ve ever met. Communicating with a billionaire daily makes you see the world different than your humble beginnings in liberty city.

“I became more organized and finally am able to step away from the daily kitchen operations.”

Bea Lewis added that Dangote changed her perspective on work ethic and patience.

“Once my mindset changed, the universe gravitated me to people that uplifted me and increased my net worth mentally and financially,” she stated.

She then attached a picture of them together.

However, in another shocking revelation, another American with Instagram handle @allarounda1 posted a video of Mr. Dangote on a couch inside what seems like a luxury yacht after a back and forth argument with Be Lewis on who truly dated the world’s richest black man. It was unclear in which country the yacht was sailing when the mistress took the video, but it clearly showed she shot the video without his knowledge. See the video below.
