The number of newly infected Coronavirus (Covid-19) has exceeded 35 million infected people in the world. While the number of HIV infections in Germany approached 300,000, Indonesian President Joko Widodo called for more focused lockdown measures to combat the epidemic.
According to the World Meter website, which specializes in monitoring all numbers and statistics related to the Corona virus in the countries of the world, the number of infected people has reached 35 million and 140 thousand and 684 infected.

For two days, the United States has lived on the impact of news that US President Donald Trump, his wife, and a number of his people have been infected with the virus.
In the latest developments, Trump said – in a video clip he posted on Twitter – that he went to the Medical Center (Walter Reed National Military Medical Center), and that he was tired, but his health was improving.
“I started to feel better and the next few days will be a real test,” he added, stressing that “work is under way” to restore it to the state it was in before.
India and Brazil
In India – the second country in terms of the number of injuries in the world – the number of infections reached 6 million 549 thousand and 373 injured, after an increase of 75,829 cases during the past 24 hours.

About 35 weeks have passed so far since the announcement of the first infection with the Coronavirus in the United Kingdom.
This comes as Indonesian President Joko Widodo called for more focused lockdown measures to combat the Corona epidemic, without exposing Indonesia’s economy to more danger.
Bloomberg news agency quoted Widodo as saying – in a statement broadcast by his office on YouTube, without providing details about the plan – that the new policy should be more targeted and specific than the current widespread social restrictions.
“The amendment of this policy should not be considered a complete coup … Covid-19 is a new issue, and every country faces different problems and has different ways to deal with them, so we must continue to adapt,” Widodo said.
