November 24 According to the European Union News Agency quoted by the European Network, the Italian Ministry of Civil Defense released epidemic data on the 23rd that as of 18:00 local time on the 23rd, the total number of confirmed cases nationwide has increased to 143,795, and the number of deaths has increased to 50,453.
According to the statistics of the Italian National Federation of Surgeons, Dental Association and the National Federation of Nurses, as of the 23rd, the number of doctors who died in the line of duty working on the front line of the national anti-epidemic has increased to 212, and the number of nurses who have died in the line of duty has reached 48.
On the 23rd, local time, Anelli, president of the Italian National Federation of Surgeons and Dentistry, said that in November, 26 doctors working on the front line of the anti-epidemic in Italy have died in the line of duty.
On average, more than 900 new confirmed cases per day for medical staff across the country, and the health system notified a total of new medical personnel in November. The number of confirmed cases has reached 27,000.
De Palma, president of the Italian National Nurses Federation, said that the situation of COVID-19 infection among nursing staff is still very serious. So far, the number of infected nurses in the national health system has reached 25,300, of which 48 nurses have died in the line of duty after contracting the novel coronavirus. The deaths of nursing staff working in private medical institutions, as well as nursing homes and private care, are not included in the statistical scope.
In addition, on the 23rd local time, the Italian Center for Social Investment released a new social survey and analysis report, which shows that under the impact of the impact of the coronavirus epidemic, the Italian job market is being hit by a series of epidemic prevention measures, which has caused a decline in the living standards of more than 7.6 million people and the number of absolute poverty in society. It increased by about 600,000 people.
Among the socially unemployed, the proportion of unemployed is the highest among young people. The unemployment rate of working women is twice that of men, and more than 60% of enterprise employees are worried that they will lose their jobs in 2021.
Delita, director of the Italian Center for Social Investment Research, said that Christmas and New Year have become the focus of social attention now. These two festivals are new economic growth points and “tipping points” for the resurgence of the epidemic.
It is worth noting that the substantial increase in the absolute poverty in society will certainly become a social destabilizing factor in the future. Therefore, while fighting against the COVID-19 epidemic, priority should be given to resolving the social contradictions and crises caused by the expansion of absolute poverty.
