Coronavirus updates: China reports downfall, Europe sees outbreak rapidly growing

China has reported an overall drop in its new cases of coronavirus infections, while much of the rest of the world continues to report increasingly more cases, with governments taking stricter precautionary measures to contain the spread of the virus.

Chinaís National Health Commission said on Monday that the mainland had confirmed 16 new cases on Sunday, down from 20 a day earlier.

The latest figures bring the total number of confirmed cases in the country so far to 80,860.

Of the new infected cases, 12 were imported infections, according to the commission. And the remaining four infections all took place in Wuhan, the epicenter of the Chinese outbreak and the capital of Hubei Province.

Monday marked the 11th consecutive day that Hubei recorded zero new infections outside of Wuhan.

Major cities, including the capital, Beijing, and Shanghai, accounted for the major number of cases involving infected travelers arriving from overseas.

This prompted the government to tighten checks on incoming travelers, with Beijing requiring anyone arriving from abroad to be transferred to city quarantine facilities for 14 days, starting Monday.

As of Sunday, the total death toll across China reached 3,213, up by 14 from the previous day.

Beyond the borders of China, the novel coronavirus, dubbed SARS-CoV-2, infected 10,955 on Sunday, up from 9,751 on Saturday, according to the World Health Organization (WHO). It was the first time new cases topped 10,000.

Europe, new epicenter of coronavirus

WHO declared Europe the epicenter of the pandemic after the continent started reporting more daily cases than China did at the peak of its outbreak.

Italy has been recording the highest numbers of infections and deaths so far.

Staggering rise in deaths in Italy

On Sunday, Italy confirmed 368 new deaths, bringing the total to 1,809.

The number of infections also rose to 24,747, from 21,157 a day earlier, even though tens of millions of Italians remained under lockdown.

Spain deploys soldiers amid state of emergency

Spain put its 47 million people under a nationwide lockdown, deploying soldiers to patrol the streets after Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez declared a state of emergency.

The country said Monday it was mulling the closure of its borders and that the issue would be discussed with other EU states.

The country recorded 2,000 new cases and more than 100 deaths over the past 24 hours, officials said Sunday.

The new figures raised Spainís infections to 7,753, and its death toll to 288.

France preparing confinement order

Meanwhile, France is preparing an order that would put its 67-million population under partial lockdown to combat the spread of the disease, official sources said on Sunday.

Reuters cited an unnamed source as saying that the confinement would begin at midnight on Tuesday. It was not clear how long the confinement would last.

Jerome Salomon, the head of the countryís health service warned Monday that the outbreak was "deteriorating very fast" and that the number of cases "double every three days."

French health officials on Sunday reported 29 additional deaths, which brought the total death toll to 120. Health Minister Olivier Veran said that that was the biggest one-day increase in the country since the outbreak had begun in January.

Around 900 more infections were recorded in the past 24 hours, taking the total to 5,400 since January, according to Veran.

Germany closes borders

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer said the government would partially close the borders with France, Switzerland, Austria, Luxembourg, and Denmark as part of measures to stem the spread of the virus. Seehofer said the new measures would take effect early Monday morning.

He said people "without a valid reason to travel will no longer be allowed to enter and leave" Germany. The minister, however, said that German citizens in the neighboring countries would be allowed back in.

Health officials had confirmed nearly 4,000 infections with the virus by Saturday, and authorities have reported 11 deaths.

Dominican Republic suspend flights from EU

The Dominican Republic, in the Caribbean, said it suspended all flights from Europe and the arrival of all cruise ships for a month from Monday morning.
