[아시아경제 우수연 기자]Major countries such as Lebanon, Portugal, and Denmark, which are rapidly spreading amid the prolonged recurrence of the new coronavirus infection (Corona 19) around the world, have entered a nationwide blockade.
According to foreign media on the 14th (local time), the Lebanese government has initiated a nationwide blockade for 11 days to respond to the rapid increase in Corona 19. Lebanese residents will not be able to leave their homes unless there is an emergency to visit a bakery, pharmacy or hospital.
This measure came from a crisis situation in which the number of corona19 infected patients in Lebanon increased, and treatment beds in some hospitals became scarce. According to the Lebanese Ministry of Health, the number of new cases in Lebanon for three days from the 11th was around 4,000. In Lebanon, with a population of about 600, the cumulative number of confirmed cases reached 23,1936 by the 13th.

The Portuguese government, which is facing the presidential election, will also enter a blockade again starting on the 15th (local time).
All stores offering non-essential goods and services should be closed, and companies were advised to work remotely. Essential stores such as supermarkets, pharmacies, gas stations, and banks are open to business, and unlike the previous blockade, students are allowed to attend school.
However, the Portuguese government exceptionally lifts the blockade on the pre-election day and on the day of the election. On this day, the number of daily confirmed cases in Portugal was 1566, and the cumulative confirmed number was 5,07108.
Denmark, a European country that is growing in fear of the COVID-19 mutant virus, also extended the blockade previously implemented on that day by at least three weeks. As the number of corona19 confirmed surges last month, Denmark limited public meetings to five and took measures such as closing restaurants, bars and schools.
As of this day, the cumulative number of corona 19 confirmed cases in Denmark was 185159, and the cumulative death toll was 1,660. In addition, in Denmark, 208 people have been confirmed to have been infected with the mutant virus, which was first discovered in the UK.
