All new cases were from people returning to China. (Guardian) * Quoted figures from China have been provided without verification. Major reporting entities from the USA have been removed from China.
"We are facing World War 3 for 90 days. Get the money to those who need it most. People will be back at work the minute we can hire them again. It's going to be short and it's going to pass.

DID YOU KNOW? As if we needed any more terrifying Coronavirus news these days: it was announced that The Hallmark Channel will now play Christmas movies 24/7! 😂😂😂😂
