US coronavirus news
Despite numerous doubts over the veracity of the reporting, the USA has now passed the total number of confirmed coronavirus deaths of China, and has twice as many infected cases as China, the country where the pandemic began.
However, US president Donald Trump told his daily press briefing that a nationwide stay-at-home order in the States was "pretty unlikely", saying this was being left up to the governors of each of the country's 50 states. The Governor of Arizona, for example, refuses to close restaurants and golf courses.
Trump also said that America is "going to be in very good shape" when it comes to having ventilators and other equipment needed to treat coronavirus patients. He said that testing is no longer a problem but there are a lot of people who disagree with him.
Indeed, he added that the US would be in a position to send "100 million dollars’ worth" of supplies to Italy, where nearly 12,000 people have been killed by Covid-19.
"The 15 days of mitigation that we had clearly have had an effect, though it's tough to quantitate it."
