US Coronavirus deaths near 13K as Trump threatens to cut funds to WHO

The 24-hour death toll from the novel coronavirus surpassed 1,850 in the United States on Tuesday, a record for any country in a single day, with a final count on Worldometer at 1,970.

U.S. total now sits at 12,841 (at the time of this writing), still on pace to see 15-20,000 deaths by Easter, the original date President Trump used as a goal a month ago to resume some normal operations.

Larger cities are ravaged the most by the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus, with New York the hardest hit: 5,489 dead, over 142,000 cases and nearby New Jeresy the second worst at 1,232 deaths and 44,416 cases.

Some of the biggest stories include President Trump threatening to withhold funds from the World Health Organization, saying the U.N. agency “seemed to be very China-centric.”“They called it wrong. They missed the call,” he added.

The Chinese city of Wuhan, the original epicenter of the outbreak, ended its 11-week lockdown early Wednesday. The city celebrated with a colourful light show. Residents will be tracked by smartphone apps to prove they are healthy and haven’t mixed with anyone infected with coronavirus.
