White House Recommends Face Coverings To Slow COVID-19

The White House is now recommending that citizens wear face coverings to combat the coronavirus. That does not mean Americans should wear the surgical masks that are needed for healthcare workers, according to officials.

President Trump says he has taken a second coronavirus test and that test was negative.

The number of people worldwide infected with the COVID-19 coronavirus is topping one million. Johns Hopkins researchers said the virus is now in 181 nations and regions around the world and has led to more than 51-thousand deaths. The numbers in the U.S. are also growing. More than 236-thousand people have been infected and over 56-hundred have died.
