Israel stands with the brave people of Italy in face of the Coronavirus outbreak

🇮🇹 🇮🇱 The walls of Jerusalem’s old city were lit up in colors of Italy’s flag in solidarity with the Italian people standing brave in the face of the Coronavirus crisis.

The town halls of Tel Aviv and Petah Tikva also shine with the Italian colors tonight.

During these difficult times, Israel stands with Italy.

The coronavirus death toll in Italy has risen by nearly 400 in 24 hours, to 1,809 from 1,441

The total number of infections in the country, which is in lockdown, has also gone up, to 24,747, from 21,157, as Europe’s worst outbreak of the virus continued to expand.

The World Health Organization says Europe is the world’s epicenter of the virus, and Italy has the highest number of cases.
