Trump suspend all travel due to coronavirus – U.S. immigration
A global pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed more than 168,000 people worldwide.
More than 2.4 million people worldwide have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data collected by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are thought to be much higher due to experiencing shortages, many unreported cases and doubts that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ cases.
Since the first cases were detected in China in December, the United States has been the worst affected country, with more than 783,000 diagnosed cases and at least 42,094 deaths.
The number of cases in New York State alone is higher than in any single country outside the United States.
