Spain and Italy ask EU for help amid virus outbreak LONDON March 30: Spain and Italy demanded more European help as they fight coronavirus infections amid the continent’s worst crisis since the Second World War. In the US, authorities urged millions in the hard-hit New York City region to stop travelling to keep the virus contained. Dr Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned the coronavirus outbreak could kill 100,000 to 200,000 Americans. He made the prediction of fatalities on CNN’s State of the Union, adding that millions in the US could become infected. By midday on Sunday, the US had about 125,000 infections and 2,200 deaths, according to the running tally kept by Johns Hopkins University, though the true number of cases is thought to be considerably higher because of testing shortages and mild illnesses that have gone unrecognised or unreported. Worldwide, the count approached 700,000 infections, and deaths topped 32,000. World Health Organisation figures showed the daily increase in new infections was eclipsing 70,000, up from about 50,000 earlier in the week, and more than six times what it was two weeks ago. New York State – where the death toll closed in on 1,000, up by more than 200 from the day before – remained the epicentre of the US outbreak, but spikes in infections were recorded around the country, not only in metropolitan areas but in Midwestern towns and Rocky Mountain ski havens. Spain and Italy alone account for more than half of the world’s death toll.
