Here are some significant developments:
- More than 600,000 people have been infected and at least 28,000 have died worldwide, according to Johns Hopkins University. Italy has been hit especially hard, with more than 9,000 deaths — most in the world. Italy has also surpassed China’s reported case total, with more than 86,000 infections as of Saturday.
- South Korea marked a new milestone, as more coronavirus patients have been discharged than those currently undergoing treatment. Some 4,811 South Koreans have recovered from the virus as of Saturday; 4,500 patients still remain in isolation and are undergoing treatment.
- Delta Air Lines announced it would fly medical workers free to parts of the United States where infections are spreading rapidly. The New York City area is the current U.S. epicenter, but the surgeon general warned that Detroit, New Orleans and Chicago are becoming “hot spots.”
- New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo (D) said Friday night that his state has secured about half of the 30,000 ventilators it needs. Meanwhile, Trump voiced his frustration with governors who haven’t been as “appreciative” toward him and his administration over its response to the coronavirus.
