The coronavirus outbreak is inching closer to becoming a pandemic. Italy has seen cases surge and now reports one death as global infections continue to rise. Authoritative containment efforts have not been effective to this point.
Authorities are struggling to contain and understand the outbreak in countries that have had a surge in infections, such as South Korea, Italy, and Iran. Infected cases have skyrocketed and have increased over 2,000 percent in the past couple of weeks, according to a report by Fox News. Italy is considered the site of Europe’s first major outbreak and the largest outside of Asia. The number of infected cases jumped to 152, compared to just three 10 days ago.
