If only the world's institutions took the global pandemic of homelessness (including both refugees and rough sleepers) as seriously as they are taking the #COVID19 epidemic.

Update: Seen the rapid spread of #Covid19 throughout this week #Italy is forced to do a Β«#Wuhan-lightΒ» and put cities such as #Milano and #Venice under quarantine as per today. 14 million people in total.
Drastic measures that come far too late as Italy has become a second hub for the #Coronavirus to spread.
Sorry to counter the narrative of #WHO, #Xitler, the #CCP and their state #propaganda, but #China has infected the world. Well done.

Latest #news update from #Japan - 70 new cases of #COVID19 #coronavirus from Diamond Princess #cruise ship. The total number of people aboard the vessel with the #virus is now 355

It's time for the daily update regarding the spread of #Covid19 in #China and beyond: The increase in confirmed cases and casualties has slowed down a bit. Meanwhile a first person has died from the #Coronavirus in Europe: an 80-year old tourist from China who somehow got out of the country and to #France. That how good those quarantine measures work. I do not see how this should be overcome by April. Oh, also a first case in Africa: #Egypt. More to come.
