Joe Biden coughs into his hand as he answers coronavirus question

Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., right, greet one another before they participate in a Democratic presidential primary debate at CNN Studios in Washington on March 15, 2020.

"With all due respect to Medicare for All, you have a single payer system in Italy", Biden said.

Sanders responded that some Americans wouldn't receive comprehensive coverage without his plan - and launched an attack at Biden.

Indeed, the stakes in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination have shifted dramatically since Biden and Sanders last debated less than three weeks ago - as have the contours of the contest.

Biden would be the oldest president-election is US history, if he were to defeat Sen.

Both candidates promised to support the eventual nominee, and in a bitter exchange repeated criticism that has come up on the campaign trail before, with Sanders saying Biden was beholden to special interests and Biden accusing Sanders of being too supportive of the gun industry.

Stocks nosedive on Wall Street
Top global oil producers Saudi Arabia and Russian Federation started a price war after failing to agree on a plan to curb supply. Wall Street's fear gauge jumped 13 points to 70.83. "Europe and the USA are following a similar path", the economists wrote.

"The ebola crisis, in my view, exposes the dysfunctionality of our health care system", Sanders said.

Sanders suggested the first step in responding to the outbreak would be "to shut this president up right now" because he was undermining the response of public health officials. "I'm using a lot of soap and hand sanitizers", Sanders said.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper tossed the first question at Sunday's Democratic debate to frontrunner Joe Biden. We can take care of that right now by making sure that no one has to pay for treatment, period, because of the crisis, no one has to pay for whatever drugs are needed, period, because of the crisis, no one has to pay for hospitalization because of the crisis, period.

After Biden's announcement, Sanders said he would "in all likelihood" do the same. His campaign staff has been working from home and Sanders also noted that he is not shaking hands. "Everything you need in terms of dealing with the crisis would be free... it is paid for by the taxpayers generally... it has nothing to do with Bernie's Medicare for All".

Before laying out his plans, Sanders pointed to President Trump. Biden later said he also believes no one should have to pay. Biden said he would authorize government funds to cover treatment. Bernie Sanders have taken the stage for the first one-on-one debate of the Democratic primary.

The leading Democratic candidates faced off Sunday night in Washington in the 11th debate of the primary season. The event was moved from Arizona, which votes Tuesday, because of concerns over the growing coronavirus pandemic, and is being held without an audience.
