100 Countrieshave so far Reported Coronavirus Cases

The World Health Organization said Sunday that 100 countries are now reporting coronavirus cases with more than 100,000 people reported as being ill.

"While very serious, this should not discourage us," said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. "There are many things everyone, everywhere can and should do now."

Tedros praised Italy for "taking bold, courageous steps aimed at slowing the spread of the coronavirus [and] protecting their country. They are making genuine sacrifices." He said the  WHO "stands in solidarity" with Italy and "is here to continue supporting you."

Italy, with 233 deaths, more than any other country outside of China, imposed a new emergency decree on Sunday, locking down the northern part of the country with a quarter of Italy's population.

The northern part of the country includes the Lombardy region and the financial capital, Milan. In addition, Italy will close off 14 other provinces, including Veneto, home of Venice.

Travel into and out the areas will be highly restricted until early next month, as the country seeks to slow the tide of fatalities from the virus. Museums, theaters, cinemas and other entertainment venues have also been ordered to close.

Italy has also asked retired doctors to return to service to help treat coronavirus victims.

In the U.S., where there have been at least 19 deaths, President Donald Trump said on Twitter, "We have a perfectly coordinated and fine tuned plan at the White House for our attack on CoronaVirus. We moved VERY early to close borders to certain areas, which was a Godsend. V.P. is doing a great job. The Fake News Media is doing everything possible to make us look bad. Sad!"

Suergeon General Jerome Adams told CNN that U.S. health officials want Americans, especially older people, to "rethink getting on a cruise or a long-haul flight" in an effort to limit their risk of being confined with someone who might have the coronavirus.

Adams said that by Monday the U.S. expects to have two million test kits available.

"If you're health care provider thinks you need a test, you'll get it," he said.
