The novel coronavirus that emanated from Wuhan, China and spread like wildfire across the globe caught many countries by surprise. In Europe, Italy soon became the region’s epicenter for the virus.

According to a new National Institute of Health (ISS) study of sewage water in Milan and Turin, there were traces of the virus’s presence in the waste water as early as December.

Italy said the first case of the virus was discovered in Mid-February. The hospitals were quickly overwhelmed leading to sweeping lockdown orders.

Since then, nearly 34,514 people have died from the virus throughout the country, according to Johns Hopkins. The official death tolls were possibly lower than the actual fatality numbers because of a lack of testing, according to Sara A. Carter’s reporting.

China’s secrecy about the virus contributed to the situation in Italy and other countries across the globe. Moreover, some say the virus was present in the country earlier than what the world was told, some reports suggesting it could’ve been there as early as November.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’

Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”

“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”

The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.

The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.

Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
