US extends coronavirus travel ban to UK, Ireland starting Tuesday


United States vp Mike Pence has announced that a travel ban imposed on European nations over the coronavirus pandemic would be extended to the uk and Ireland starting at 04:00 GMT on Tuesday.

"Americans within the UK or Ireland can fall into place. Legal residents can fall into place," Pence told a White House press conference on Saturday, adding that such people would be "funnelled through specific airports and processed".


Earlier, a 30-day US ban on travel from the ecu Union's Schengen border-free zone took effect on Saturday, but notably excluded the united kingdom and Ireland.

But President Donald Trump later confirmed the ban would be extended to those two countries because the pandemic progressed, saying: "They've had a touch little bit of activity, unfortunately."

Trump tested for virus
Meanwhile, Trump said he had taken a coronavirus test, adding that his temperature was "totally normal".

After White House officials took the unprecedented step of checking the temperatures of journalists entering the briefing room, Trump told reporters he took a test for the virus on Friday night which he expects the ends up in "a day or two days".

He met a Brazilian delegation last week, a minimum of one member of which has since tested positive.

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci said the US has recorded 20,226 cases of the new coronavirus, but has not yet reached the height of the outbreak.

"This will decline before it gets better," Surgeon General Jerome Adams said at the briefing.

Pence, who is running the administration's response to the outbreak, told reporters that visits to nursing homes were being suspended to guard the foremost vulnerable.

Earlier on Saturday, officials in the big apple said an 82-year-old woman became the state's first coronavirus fatality.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said the lady, who had previously suffered from emphysema, was admitted to hospital in Manhattan on March 3. He told reporters that the state's tally of cases had risen to 524. Nationwide, over 2,000 people are infected and 50 have died.

Emergency measures
On Friday, Trump declared a national emergency during a move that he said would bring "the full power of the federal government" up-to-date on the escalating health crisis by freeing up some $50bn in aid. He also urged every state to line up emergency centres to assist fight the virus.

The pandemic has forced public schools, sports events and cultural and entertainment venues to shut across the US.

On Friday, American shoppers picked market shelves clean of products starting from disinfectants to rice, causing retailers to race to restock their stores. In response to the run on certain items, major retailers have imposed some purchase limits.

Coronavirus took its biggest toll yet on this year's US presidential election when Louisiana announced on Friday it had postponed its Democratic and Republican presidential primaries.

Early on Saturday, the house of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a coronavirus aid package that might provide free testing and paid leave of absence, during a bid to limit the economic damage from the outbreak.

By a bipartisan vote of 363 to 40, the Democratic-controlled House passed a multibillion-dollar effort that might expand safety-net programmes to assist people who might be thrown out of labor within the weeks to come back.

Trump said he supported the package, raising the likelihood that it'll pass the Republican-controlled Senate next week.

Economists say the impact of the outbreak on businesses could tip the US economy into recession.
