Coronavirus infections in Italy increased despite weeks of blockages, worsening in Europe human cost as the continent's leaders discussed unprecedented economic rescue plans.

Chancellor Angela Merkel, speaking from pre-emptive quarantine at her home in Berlin, said Thursday that it was premature for Germany to consider lifting the blockade measures, which her country took longer to impose than other major European nations.

"We are not even close to where we can see if the measures are working," Merkel told reporters in a conference call. "So I really have to ask people in Germany for patience."

With Italy and Spain reporting the highest number of deaths worldwide, the outbreak in Europe is affecting health systems, forcing doctors to choose who he should die and give a hunch of what might come in other advanced countries. While death rates in Italy and Spain declined marginally on Thursday, reported infections increased in both countries.

The leaders of the Group of 20, which includes Germany, France and Italy, said they were injecting $ 5 billion in the global economy and committed to doing "whatever it takes" to overcome the coronavirus pandemic and its consequences.

Like the G-20, European Union leaders met virtually on Thursday to discuss the crisis. Merkel, who has tested negative for the coronavirus twice, commented on the limitations. "Of course you don't have a chance to walk and talk to someone at the table," he said.
