Spain and Italy have not revealed any information regarding the pandemic for the last 24 hours. Claims are being made that the situation in these countries is improving. While the outbreak is on a rampage in Europe, the industry is demanding the withdrawal of the lockdown. The industry sector has warned that otherwise, it will take a huge financial hit, and the employment creation will stop completely. Therefore, as per some people, the European countries may take measures to withdraw or relax the restrictions of the lockdown.
The medical experts have clearly warned that the withdrawal of lockdown can spell doom for the countries. Two-thirds of the deaths reported in the world are from Europe, and half the number of Coronavirus cases are in Europe. Therefore, it is difficult for any European country to relax or withdraw the lockdown at the moment.
