US coronavirus cases cross 60,000, 827 dead: tracker

Spain reels: The country has now recorded more deaths than China - only Italy has more. Rickshaw drivers, produce peddlers, maids, day labourers and other low-wage workers form the backbone of the economy, and many live day to day on their wages and have no savings to fall back on.

Most of the countries concerned, including Argentina, Britain, France, India and Italy as well as many USA states, have imposed mandatory lockdown measures.

The US is now just narrowly behind China and Italy at 80,021 cases, and has seen more than 1,000 deaths, 385 of them in New York State. The Senate late Wednesday approved a historic US$2 trillion rescue plan to respond to the economic and health crisis caused by the pandemic. Italy has suffered the most fatalities from the virus worldwide, with more than 7,500 deaths as of Thursday. In the United Arab Emirates, authorities announced an overnight weekend lockdown and used drones to tell people to stay home. In the US, more than 61,000 people have tested positive and over 890 have died of the disease.

Of the 256 Canadians aboard the Diamond Princess, more than 40 tested positive for the virus and were taken to hospital in Japan. The findings showed that the virus survived on surfaces for far longer than was originally believed.

The flu and pneumonia caused around 60,000 deaths. While Johns Hopkins says a total of 619 across the country are confirmed to have recovered from the disease, that number is likely much, much higher, given that many people who contract the virus only experience mild symptoms and are never tested for the disease.
