Coronavirus outbreak: President Donald Trump confirms 1st death in U.S., talks virus response

Editor’s note: The CDC and Washington State officials confirmed the first death of coronavirus in the United States is a male in his 50s. President Trump stated during an earlier news conference the death was a female.

U.S. President Donald Trump spoke on Saturday about the country’s ongoing response to the COVID-19 virus and confirmed a person in Washington state had died from the illness. He added there were four others “very ill,” and 15 have either fully recovered on on their way to recovery. In total, he said there were 22 cases in the country and “additional cases in the United States are likely.”

Vice President Mike Pence said that they were increasing travel restrictions on Iran amid ongoing concerns about the COVID-19 virus, preventing foreign nationals from coming to the U.S. who has visited Iran in the past 14 days. He said they also are advising Americans not to travel to specific regions of Italy and South Korea.

Trump called on people not to “incite panic” over COVID-19 virus concerns, saying the U.S. was prepared for any circumstance.

    There will be no vaccine quickly!!
    Every expert has said it would take a year to 18 months to even get a vaccine produced ,and that is if the virus doesn’t mutate.

  3. Travis M says:

    Ok but… whens the last time influenza killed a physician, even one studying the virus. A physician is trained to identify life threatening illnesses, thats a fishy death.

  9. Marie Mai says:

    Who is paying for people’s treatment and testing when they do not have health insurance? They will avoid any medical attention out of fear of bankruptcy and spread the virus faster than anywhere else in the world.

    • Exo Apocalypse says:

      Hmm yes the Chinese government have free healthcare I wonder how that went

    • Cat NotmyLastname says:

      @Exo Apocalypse The last time I was in China, their health care was atrocious, but not because it was free for citizens.

    • Empire Co says:

      @Arthur you are just saying some random nonsense. “Healthcare isn’t free” yes it isn’t but much much better than losing 70k on a surgery. Now tell me would you rather pay extra 5% (that’s healthcare) of your salary every month or would you rather save those 5% and give $70k on a surgery? Every person with common sense knows what to choose something you really lack

    • Lalisa is my religion says:

      As a medical student myself I find it hideous that emergencies and infectious diseases situations are paid by the person. Ideally I would want everyone to have free medical care, but we all know that medicine is very expensive for the governments. However, regarding those situations that I’ve mentioned, I believe they should be an obligatory expense for any government that actually cares for their citizens. Just see this problem now, one may actually not go to the doctor because of the expenses they will have and go on to spread the virus.
      Being an European, I am glad and proud that many countries on this side of the Atlantic provide their citizens with free medical care. It is such a relief for people to know they can go to the doctor without going bankrupt. And yes, we also pay it in a way, through taxes, but I can assure you that no one is complaining about it when they go to the hospital and get everything done at zero cost. And the rich people who want a more personalized and fast care always have the option to pay in the private system.
      I am sure the American government could find some money for its medical system, but their priorities seem to be different.

      Better get Bernie elected. Many lives depend on it. Not only because of Coronavirus but all kinds of injury and diseases.

    the president: “we have the most aggressive testing in the world”

    proceeds to test barely 500 people…

    • theartisthasarrived says:

      @Infinity Reaper Dude chill.

    • Jason Gooden says:

      We tested much more than that in Ontario Canada and our country has 10 times less people.

    • xy you says:

      ​@Infinity Reaper Chicoms?You are a poor man.Your words are full of discrimination.
      chinese bioweapon? The only country in the world that refuses to join 《Convention against the development of biological weapons(BTWC)》- US
      Coronavirus in group A / B / C / D / E all exists in the US
      There are only groups C and E in China, and the older A and B are missing
      Japanese media suspect that in the US, part of the flu deaths are caused by the coronavirus
      You tell me what I should believe?

  11. Andy Lane says:

    I am so confused, I saw another briefing saying it was a man who died.

  12. coooolibri says:

    we have all under control he says 2 or 3 days ago.

  13. Cory Lynn says:

    Starting at 9:38, he seems to be hinting at Canada.

  14. Melanie Lamb says:

    I feel we all need to be mindful of cash transactions (grocery stores, fast food etc). It has been stated the virus can survive on metal under the right ambient influence for 9 days. Meaning it will survive longer on substances containing a more porous composition. I also feel one should wear gloves when pumping gas, or touching anything the public touches. (Grocery carts, doors, etc)
    Prayers going up for all 🙏

    • DesertStateInEu says:

      Impy The US debt per capita $58 000, the UK $127 000, France $73 000, Germany $62 000, Denmark $90 000, Sweden $95 000, Norway $117 000, Finland $88 000, Belgium $113 000, Netherlands $264 000. On top of this the European countries have skyscraper high taxes sky high gas prices, insufficient military budgets. Not to mention the US leads by far in disease survival rates.
      Can somebody explain this to me? Why is this? Could it be that all the free stuff Europe hands out is unaffordable? I live in the EU btw.

    • deran faith says:

      @DesertStateInEu the u.s debt per GDP is higher than all those countries, and sits above 100% of their GDP. Their debt is literally stronger than their gdp lmfao.
