Virus spreads to over 60 countries; France closes the Louvre

PARIS (AP) Coronavirus cases surged in Italy, and France closed the world-famous Louvre Museum on Sunday as the deadly outbreak that began in China sent fear rising across Western Europe, threatening its tourism industry.

The number of countries hit by the virus climbed past 60, and the death toll worldwide reached at least 3,000.

New fronts in the battle opened rapidly over the weekend, deepening the sense of crisis that has already sent financial markets plummeting, emptied the streets in many cities and rewritten the routines of millions of people. More than 88,000 around the globe have been infected, with the virus popping up on every continent but Antarctica.

Australia and Thailand reported their first deaths Sunday, while the Dominican Republic and the Czech Republic recorded their first infections.

Italian authorities announced that the number of people infected in the country soared 50% to 1,694 in just 24 hours, and five more had died, bringing the death toll there to 34. France raised its number of reported cases to 130, an increase of 30 from the day before, and said it has seen two deaths.

There are 189 counties in the world and in North Korea who knows what is going on...............so there are 129 countries left that means about 1/3 of the countries on this planet have one or more cases..........................

But have no fear in the US we have a megalomaniac that is worried that the dems are doing this to take him down and he is worried about his stock................and has a "guy" in his crime family shutting down transparency at the CDC..................what could possibly go wrong.......................

2. Caribbean update

One in St Barts; three in St Marteen (the three are all in one family - parents came to visit their son; parents quarantined; son at home) one in Guadeloupe. These appear to have links to Italy.
