coronavirus updates 2020 history  1a  globally | Upload

Public health experts worldwide are scrambling to understand, track, and contain the coronavirus COVID-19 - a new virus - that appeared in Wuhan, China, at the beginning of December 2019. The World Health Organization named the disease caused by the coronavirus COVID-19, which references the type of virus and the year it emerged. The WHO declared that the virus is a pandemic. Coronavirus updates 2020 history (1A) globally summarizes the events from the 13th of March until the 14th of April 2020. Only odd dates are published alternately.

  • Fauci confirms report Trump rebuffed social distancing advice
  • China reported the highest daily infections in over five weeks. Mainland China reported 108 new coronavirus cases on Sunday, up from 99 a day earlier, and 46 reported on Friday.
  • Top oil-producing countries agreed Sunday on “historic” output cuts in a bid to boost plummeting oil prices due to the new coronavirus crisis and a Russia-Saudi price war.
    Alabama cannot block abortions during the coronavirus crisis, a judge has ruled.
  • Spain is readying to reopen parts of its economy as governments grapple with a once-in-a-century recession. Spain’s death toll has fallen over recent days, but as a small bump in deaths was reported on Sunday, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez warned that the locked-down country was “far from victory.”
    On Monday, French President Emmanuel Macron is expected to warn the country its lockdown will continue for several more weeks, at least. On Sunday, France reported a lower number of Covid-19 fatalities over the last 24 hours, with 315 deaths in hospital over the last day, compared with 345 the previous day.
  • France is set to isolate 1,900 sailors after virus-hit naval ship docks.
    Germany had the third day of lower cases. Germany’s number of confirmed coronavirus infections has risen by 2,537 to 123,016. That was lower than a 2,821 increase reported on Sunday and marked the third decline after four days of gains.
  • On Sunday, Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan refused to ion his minister's resignation over an abrupt nationwide lockdown that triggered a spate of panic-buying.
  • Boris Johnson has been discharged from the hospital. He thanked the NHS for “saving [his] life” after leaving St Thomas’ hospital in south London, where he had been hospitalized for a week.
  • The UK government faces mounting criticism over its coronavirus response, particularly its failure to secure enough personal protective equipment and tests for NHS and care workers as the country’s death toll passed 10,000. This follows a warning that the UK could experience the highest coronavirus death toll in Europe.
  • Senior US public health officials have pushed back on Donald Trump’s eagerness to reopen the country quickly, as a senior World Health Organization figure warned that Covid-19 “is going to be a virus that stalks the human race for quite a long time to come.”

Coronavirus Updates 2020 History (1A) Globally

Public health experts worldwide are scrambling to understand, track, and contain the coronavirus COVID-19 - a new virus - that appeared in Wuhan, China, at the beginning of December 2019. The World Health Organization named the disease caused by the coronavirus COVID-19, which references the type of virus and the year it emerged. The WHO declared that the virus is a pandemic. Coronavirus updates 2020 history (1A) globally summarizes the events from the 13th of March until the 14th of April 2020.  Only odd dates are published alternately.
