Increase in deaths from Corona, curfew announced in Muslim countries on Eid-ul-Fitr

The death toll from the coronavirus has risen sharply around the world, and many Muslim countries have announced a nationwide lockdown and curfew on Eid al-Fitr.

At least 4,872,308 people have been infected with the coronavirus worldwide and 321,593 people have died so far.

The highest death toll in the United States

The highest death toll from the virus has been in the United States, where 91,187 people have been killed and more than 1.52 million infected.

The UK has the highest number of deaths in Europe, the world's worst-hit region, with at least 35,422 people killed so far, with more than 2.5 million affected.

Russia also has about 300,000 people infected with the virus, but the death toll in Italy and Spain is declining.

Unemployment in the UK at record levels

Unemployment in the UK hit a record post-1990 level in April due to permanent lockdowns and the closure of shopping malls in the country.

Such a sharp rise in unemployment reflects the effects of the coronavirus on the British economy, even though the government has launched programs to prevent layoffs.

According to the foreign news agency AP, the number of jobless claims in April rose from 856,000 to 2,010,000, the highest since 1996, and an increase of 69% compared to March. ۔

On the other hand, the strict lockdown has been announced in Muslim countries on the occasion of Eid-ul-Fitr, and curfew has been imposed in many countries.

Curfew imposed on Eid in Muslim countries

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has imposed a four-day nationwide curfew from May 23 to 26 during the Eid holidays.

Earlier, curfew was announced in 31 provinces but curfew will be imposed in all 81 provinces of the country during Eid.

Prior to Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates also announced a complete curfew on Eid al-Fitr to prevent the spread of the virus.

Egypt has also announced a nationwide lockdown for the six-day Eid holiday from May 24, while Kuwait has already announced a full 20-day lockdown from May 10 to 30.

Jordan has banned the movement of people on the first day of Eid but will allow people to drive their vehicles with safety measures for the rest of the day.

Qatar has announced a number of new measures to curb the spread of the new coronavirus, including suspending most commercial activities until May 30.

Officials announced that all shops will be closed during the Eid holidays, except for food and catering shops, pharmacies, restaurant delivery services, and some other essential services.

However, the toughest lockdown has been announced by Oman, where people will be fined and jailed for breaking the law and leaving their homes during the Eid holidays.
