Nurses and doctors treating coronavirus patients at a hospital in northeastern Spain are struggling to keep their morale up.

On the ninth floor of the Germans i Trias Pujol hospital in Badalona near Barcelona, nurses have adapted their workflow to treat patients with COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus, and at the same time avoid contaminating themselves.

While one nurse or assistant nurse goes into the virus-infected rooms another stands outside and hands the other everything they may need, from medication to food platters.

As they adapt to circumstances and improvise in the face of the scarcity of protective gear, they also try to cheer each other up with post-its and good humor. But it isn't long enough before they go back to worrying about the virus which has infected more than 110,000 people in Spain.

"We may be laughing now only to spend the afternoon crying," said Angela Llobell, an assistant nurse working on the ninth floor.

Flowers are donated to the hospital almost daily. Buckets of bouquets are placed in the reception for nurses and patients to take home with them.

But many fear bringing the virus home too. After all, they've seen so many of their colleagues fall ill. They could be next.

Llobell, aged 26, doesn't return home to her family at night. They live in Valencia. She usually takes the train to visit them once a month, but last time she saw them was over the Christmas holidays.

She worries they will catch the new coronavirus even after seeing some extraordinary recoveries.

"You are afraid that they will catch it, that they fall ill," she says of her family. "Because every day you see young people falling ill. And you think: if this happens to my father, will they have enough breathing machines in case he needs one?"

She knows from experience the ventilators at the hospital she works in are being kept for the patients with the highest chance of survival.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death

You also feel bad for the patients who are so alone."

14. Various of doctors analyzing medical documents and charts

15. SOUNDBITE (Spanish) Angela Llobell, assistant nurse at hospital Germans Trias i Pujol:

"A person with multiple pathologies (pre-existing conditions), an 80-year-old, would not be able to enter the ICU right now. These breathing machines are being kept for people who have a higher chance of survival. Although it is true there are many elderly people that leave here walking (after recovering) and you say "Oh my! They are great!" it doesn't do as much damage to everyone. But it is true we are having to filter, and that is very sad."

As Spain's virus infections broke the 100,000 mark, a hospital in the northeastern region of Catalonia has been forced to turn its library into an Intensive Care Unit to deal with the influx of COVID-19 patients in critical condition.

Health workers at the Germans Trias i Pujol hospital outside Barcelona are struggling to get their hands on the appropriate protective gear and improvising with plastic aprons instead.

A brand-new area of this hospital originally built for heart surgery patients to recover in was also turned into a COVID-19 ICU before it was even inaugurated.

Spanish health authorities said Wednesday the country registered a new record of 864 deaths in one day and that the total number of deaths reached 9,053 since the beginning of the outbreak.

Total infections hit 102,136 cases.

But the 24-hour increase of 7,719 was 1,500 fewer than the increase from the previous day, offering hope that the contagion rate is stabilizing.

For most people the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, but for some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness or death.

The medical team at the intensive care unit of a hospital in northeastern Spain is working around the clock to battle the new coronavirus and save as many lives as they can.

The German Trias i Pujol hospital in Badalona has tripled the number of beds available for patients in critical condition due to COVID-19.

Many patients there have developed a bilateral pneumonia forcing doctors to intubate them and required assisted ventilation.

To try an ease breathing, patients at this ICU are also temporarily flipped onto their stomachs.  

Many healthcare workers are needed to do this safely.

For most people the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, but for some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness or death.

  

The protective isolation measures for both patients in the 12 ICU boxes and the medical team treating them has forced hospital workers to use new methods of communication.

They exchange notes and make signs through a glass separating the ICU from the rest of the hospitals. Some also use walkie talkies.

  

Entering and leaving the ICU requires extensive and careful preparation and focus.

Medical staff must be careful not to let the virus out to avoid infecting their co-workers and families at home.

But even with all the precautions, health workers in Spain have been one of the most impacted by the new coronavirus.

Authorities in Spain say that 12,298 health workers in the country have so far tested positive.

The figure is 14.4% of the total reported infections, which rose on Monday above 85,000 and placed Spain ahead of China and only behind the United States and Italy in the list of nations with greater contagion.

Liege hospital intensive care unit in Belgium on Friday confirmed it is currently treating 15 critical patients infected with the new coronavirus, but has the situation under control for the moment.

According to Julien Guntz, Liege hospital Intensive Care Unit head doctor, the challenge is not as much the disease, but really the influx of patients - doctors know how to treat them, but they can only treat so many at the same time.

Specific measures and routes have been implemented in the hospital to make sure that infected patients never cross the path of other doctors and patients.

All coronavirus patients are treated with ventilators and are under constant care and monitoring.

Currently Belgium has 7,284 cases of the new virus, with 289 deaths.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

So if we get only a few this is not an issue, but when a lot are coming and we already have a lot of patients in, and who are here for a long time, this is a real challenge. That is what we see in other country, the issue is the massive flow of patients to handle and that is why confinement is so important, so we don't have too many heavy patients to handle simultaneously"

The UK's Health Secretary Matt Hancock on Sunday said it was a "sombre" day after he announced the national death toll from the new coronavirus had passed 10,000.

Hancock said the 10,612 deaths caused by "this invisible killer demonstrates just how serious coronavirus is" and reminded the public the importance of social distancing.

The health secretary announced over 5,000 former National Health Service (NHS) staff had returned to support efforts to tackle the virus outbreak and over 36,000 had come forward to enlist.

He also fought back at those who said the NHS would be "overwhelmed" by the pandemic, saying there were currently 2,295 critical care beds available.

This had been possible by the creation of temporary hospitals, which had also enabled a "record number" of ventilators to be put to use.

Hancock said it was "great news" that Prime Minister Boris Johnson had left hospital after being treated for COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

"It's great news that the prime minister (Boris Johnson) has been discharged from hospital and is now continuing his recovery at Chequers (country house of prime minister). I hope everyone has seen his message of love and thanks to all those who've supported his recovery. And to the NHS colleagues who've cared for him so brilliantly at St Thomas' Hospital."

2. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Hancock, UK Secretary of State for Health and Social Care:

"Today marks a sombre day in the impact of this disease as we join the list of countries who have seen more than 10,000 deaths related to coronavirus. The fact that over 10,000 people have now lost their lives to this invisible killer demonstrates just how serious coronavirus is and why the national effort that everyone is engaged in is so important. According to the most recent figures, 282,374 people have now been tested for coronavirus. 84,279 have tested positive. Across Great Britain, the number people admitted to hospital with coronavirus symptoms is now 19,945. And of those who've contracted the virus, 10,612 have tragically died."

++BLACK FRAMES++

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Hancock, UK Secretary of State for Health and Social Care:

"The latest figures show that in Great Britain, we have 2,295 spare critical care beds, up 150 from yesterday. So throughout this crisis, with all the challenges that we've been dealing with, all the operational difficulties and all of the logistics, we have always been able to provide the very best of care to everybody who needs it, through the NHS. At the start of this crisis, people said that the NHS would be overwhelmed. And we've seen that (corrects) and we've seen the risk of that. Elsewhere, but not here."

++BLACK FRAMES++

4. SOUNDBITE (English) Matt Hancock, UK Secretary of State for Health and Social Care:

"This (temporary hospitals) critical expansion is partly because we have a record number of ventilators - 9,775 - and partly because we have record numbers of returners coming back and rejoining the NHS. Over 5,000 former staff are now back on the NHS frontline and over 36,000 have come forward to enlist."

People appeared to heed the UK government's warning not to venture out on Saturday despite warm weather amid lockdown measures to contain the coronavirus outbreak.

Normally the south coast city of Brighton would be packed over the Easter weekend, but the seafront and beach was almost empty.

A small number of cyclists and walkers were out in the warm sunshine, but seemed to observe the social distancing rules.

Britain on Saturday reported 917 more deaths, down from the peak of 980 recorded a day earlier.

The country’s overall death toll neared 10,000.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

A few people in London were seen ignoring the UK government's social distancing rules on Saturday, enjoying the warm Easter weather by sunbathing in parks.

Nationwide restrictions to public movement were imposed by the government on March 23 as part of measures to stop the spread of the new coronavirus.

Britons were informed that they must stay at home and only go outside for essential work, to visit a doctor or pharmacy, or to shop for basic necessities like food or medicine.

  

People are also allowed one daily exercise, such as jog or walk.  

Authorities, including police, have been granted powers to enforce the social distancing rules if needed.

Footage from Hyde Park in central London showed mounted police and police vans patrolling the normally crowded public space to ensure people were following the measures.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and could lead to death.

Chinese and British scientists have seen progress on a joint research project at Oxford University that is developing a quick and reliable test of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

Professor Cui Zhanfeng has been working on this since the outbreak started in Wuhan, China.

"It tests the individual whether [they] get infected and still infectious. So, if I'm test positive, that means I got the virus. I can spread the virus. I should go to isolation," said Cui.

He added that the results could be returned in 30 minutes, while the current swab test can take up to two days.

Another good thing that benefits the test is its simplicity. The team aims to eventually make it so simple that everyone can do this at clinics, pharmacies, airports and in the privacy of people's homes. If the color of the solution changes from pink to yellow, it's positive. However, if it stays pink, it's negative.

Oxford University is working in collaboration with China. The university has a branch at the Suzhou Industrial Park in China, and half the team is working there.

"When the lockdown in China was happening. We could work here. And now that everything has switched around, we've got the ability there. We are less affected by impacts in transport and we are able to make the best use of patient examples, hospitals and manufacturers worldwide," said Catriona Inverarity, a researcher at Oxford University.

And the interest in this test is global.

"We like to issue like royalty-free license, and to manufactures all over the world. It's non-exclusive. We've had interest expressed from 14 countries so far," said Cui.

The UK's Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said on Tuesday UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is a "fighter" and remained in a stable condition overnight as he continues to battle the coronavirus.

Johnson was admitted to St. Thomas’ Hospital late Sunday with a fever and cough that persisted 10 days after he was diagnosed with COVID-19, the illness caused by the coronavirus.

He was moved to the intensive care unit on Monday evening after his condition worsened.

Raab said Johnson was receiving standard oxygen treatment and breathing without any assistance.

He said: "I'm confident he'll pull through because if there's one thing I know about this Prime Minister, he's a fighter and he'll be back at the helm leading us through this crisis in short order."

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson remained in St Thomas' Hospital in London early Tuesday where he is being treated in intensive care after contracting the new coronavirus.

Johnson was admitted to the hospital in the capital on Sunday, 10 days after he was diagnosed with COVID-19.

He was transferred to intensive care on Monday after his condition worsened further.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

The vast majority of people recover.

A conference centre in Glasgow is being turned into a temporary hospital to give extra capacity to Scotland's National Health Service (NHS) during the new coronavirus outbreak.

The SEC (Scottish Events Campus) Centre is the venue where the United Nations Climate Change Conference, COP26, was set to take place in November before being postponed to 2021 because of the pandemic.

The temporary hospital has been named after a Scottish nurse from Glasgow, Louisa Jordan, who died in active service during World War I.

According to the Scottish government, the hospital will provide an initial 300 beds to help safeguard Scotland's NHS during the pandemic.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson was moved to the intensive care unit of a London hospital after his coronavirus symptoms worsened Monday, just a day after he was admitted for what were said to be routine tests.

Britain has no official post of deputy prime minister, but Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has been designated to take over should Johnson become incapacitated.

In reaction to the update on Johnson's health, Raab said "the prime minister asked me as first secretary to deputise for him where necessary in driving forward the government's plans to defeat coronavirus."

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

"Well, since Sunday, the prime minister's been under the medical care of the team at St Thomas' Hospital after he was admitted with persistent coronavirus symptoms. During the course of this afternoon, the prime minister's condition worsened. And on the advice of the medical team, he was moved in to a critical care unit. So in light of those circumstances, the prime minister asked me as first secretary to deputise for him where necessary in driving forward the government's plans to defeat coronavirus. And as you'll know, we, he's been receiving excellent care at St Thomas' Hospital. And we'd like to take this opportunity as a government to thank NHS (UK National Health Service) staff up and down the country for all of their dedication, hard work and commitment in treating everyone who's been affected by this awful virus."

(Reporter question: "With the prime minister now in intensive care, this is obviously an extremely serious situation. I mean, how worried should people be about his health and about who's in charge of the government?")

Dominic Raab: "Well, the government's business will continue. And the prime minister is in safe hands with a brilliant team at St Thomas' Hospital. And the focus of the government will continue to be on making sure the prime minister's direction, all the plans for making sure that we can defeat coronavirus and pull the country through this challenge will be taken forward."

(Reporter question: "Are you confident, though, that the government is under control tonight?")

Dominic Raab: "There's an incredibly strong team spirit behind the prime minister and making sure that we get all of the plans that the prime minister's instructed us to deliver to get them implemented as soon as possible. And that's the way we will bring the whole country through the ground up coronavirus challenge that we face right now."

US President Donald Trump has claimed he has the “total” authority to decide how and when to reopen the US economy after weeks of tough social distancing guidelines aimed at fighting the new coronavirus.

Trump would not offer specifics about the source of his asserted power, which he claimed, despite constitutional limitations, was absolute.

“When somebody is president of the United States, the authority is total,” he said on Monday at the White House, adding: “The governors know that.”

The president faced numerous questions about his "total authority" claim from reporters at the news conference, telling one of them: "enough".

The comments came not long after Democratic leaders in the Northeast and along the West Coast announced separate state compacts to coordinate their efforts to scale back stay-at-home orders or reopen businesses on their own timetables.

Governors from both parties were quick to push back against Trump's comments, noting they had primary responsibility for ensuring public safety in their states and would decide when it's safe to begin a return to normal operations.

The US constitution gives public health and safety responsibilities primarily to state and local officials.

Because ultimately, it comes with the federal government. That being said, we're getting along very well with the governors and I feel very certain that there won't be a problem.

US President Donald Trump defended his decision to play a video praising his response to the coronavirus crisis at a White House briefing on Monday, saying he needed to correct "fake news" from sections of the media.

Trump said the video was produced in-house by his social media director, Dan Scavino, and others at taxpayer expense.

"I'll bet you I have over 100 more clips. Even better than them," Trump said.

When asked why he felt the need to publish the video, he replied "Because we're getting fake news and I like to have it corrected."

The US president has been facing mounting criticism from parts of the media over the response time to public health measures.

Trump defended this saying, "We did the right thing. Everything we did was right".

As of early Tuesday, the US has reported more than 580,000 cases and 23,500 deaths linked to the virus, the highest national totals in the world.

President Donald Trump denied any rift with a key member of his White House Coronavirus Task Force, Dr. Anthony Fauci, a day after the president retweeted a tweet that included the hashtag "#FireFauci."

Asked by a reporter at Monday's White House briefing if he and Fauci "were on the same page," the president insisted they were.

"Yeah, we have from the beginning. I don't know what it is exactly, but if I put somebody's opinion up, you know, I don''t mind controversy," the president said.

"I think controversy is a good thing, not a bad thing. But I want it to be honest controversy," Trump said.

Fauci told an interviewer over the weekend that there would have been fewer deaths in the US due to the coronavirus, if social distancing and mitigation efforts started earlier.

Monday, Fauci took to the podium to clarify that statement and indicate that Trump took his advice as the health crisis loomed.

During the briefing, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the administration is mulling additional ways to stimulate the economy through additional legislation.

The president also declined to say if he would try to reopen the US economy by May 1st, but said his administration will provide additional guidance in the coming days.

And he said he would consider the views of two of his top health experts, Fauci, and Dr. Deborah Birx, the response coordinator of his White House task force.

But he said he would weigh that advice against the advice of "many other people."

"Never seen anything like it," read the headline of a New York Times article on April 8 as the U.S. entered its fourth week of national emergency due to the spread of the novel coronavirus. The report painted a dim picture of cars snaking in miles-long queues at food banks from Nebraska to Washington. Approximately 16.8 million Americans were laid off or put on furlough in a span of three weeks – that's over 10 percent of the American workforce, which outpaced the worst month of the Great Recession.

On Saturday, U.S. President Donald Trump declared major disaster in all 50 states – for the first time in U.S. history. For some, the quick succession of life-changing events were too difficult to comprehend.

How did things get here?

As early as December 31, 2019, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) learned of a "cluster of 27 cases of pneumonia" of unexplained origin in Wuhan on the same day that China reported the same number of pneumonia cases of unknown etiology in the central Chinese city.

Between December 31, 2019 and January 3, 2020, China reported 44 such cases to the WHO China Country Office.

On January 1, the WHO set up the Incident Management Support Team to prepare for an outbreak. Two days later a Chinese official informed CDC Director Robert Redfield about the outbreak of a respiratory illness in Wuhan. Redfield relayed the information to Alex Azar, the Health and Human Services secretary, who then told the National Security Council.

But it wasn't until late January that Trump made his first comments about the disease, a day after the U.S. confirmed its first case in Seattle. "We have it totally under control," the president sounded sanguine.

Between Beijing's notification and Trump's reaction, the WHO issued its first Disease Outbreak News and a technical guidance on how to detect, test and manage potential cases to all countries, while Chinese health authorities identified the virus and shared its genetic makeup publicly. It was also during this period that local health authorities in Wuhan ruled out flu, avian flu, adenovirus infections, the severe acute respiratory syndrome and the Middle East respiratory syndrome. Plus, China's National Health Commission confirmed that the novel coronavirus was being transmitted between humans.

Across the pond, the CDC fell short of taking concrete prevention and control measures except offering a warning against Americans traveling to Wuhan. It seemed that the emerging cases in Thailand, Japan and South Korea by January 20 failed to capture their attention.

Over the next few days, Washington was on a hectic schedule in imposing travel restrictions from China and evacuating American citizens from Wuhan.

According to a Washington Post report, Trump's long-term adviser Peter Navarro wrote a memo warning of 500,000 or more American deaths in late January. However, his words fell flat, along with U.S. intelligence agencies that "have been warning on this since January."

There was back then discord within the White House over the virus, with some Trump aides urging action while others putting the November elections above everything else.

One day after the WHO declared the coronavirus a Public Health Emergency of International Concern, the U.S. announced a public health emergency over the virus, on the last day of January.

Soon after the U.S. issued travel warnings, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the authorization for the emergency use of the CDC assay in early February. Two days later, the CDC announced that it was distributing the diagnostic test kits to labs across the nation. As the disease spread, Trump even told a political rally in New Hampshire that by April, "When it gets a little warmer, the [disease] miraculously goes away." The WHO later said there is no reason to believe that the virus behaves differently in different temperatures.

As the administration projected an image of confidence in handling the issue, Azar said travel restrictions were "measured and incremental" since they did not apply to citizens, permanent residents or immediate family members. On February 17, the U.S. repatriated 300 American passengers aboard the Diamond Princess, some of who were infected.

The epidemic had evidently landed on U.S. soil. Despite issuing travel advisories for Iran, Italy, Japan, and South Korea, health authorities reported the first instance of possible community spread on February 26. Trump appointed Vice President Mike Pence to head the COVID-19 task force, but the federal response was meandering at best. The CDC and the FDA then distributed new tests to public laboratories to address inconclusive results given by the previous diagnostic kits. On the last day of February, the U.S. recorded its first death from the coronavirus.

On March 6, Trump once again stated in no uncertain terms that "anybody who wants a test will get a test" while touring the CDC facilities, even as shortages of testing kits continued to plague hospitals across the country. He even said three days later that the virus would "go away. Just stay calm."

The virus, however, wasn't going anywhere as the WHO declared a global pandemic on March 11. On the same day, Redfield said at a House Oversight Committee discussion, "Some cases have actually been diagnosed that way in the United States today."

Even as some U.S. states languished in taking action, the CDC published a guidance recommending canceling or postponing mass gatherings of over 50 people. But the advisory was simply cautionary, as it didn't have the force of law. Suddenly, concepts like "social distancing," "self-quarantine" and "flattening the curve" that seemed foreign to most Americans just a month ago became the norm in this grim new reality.

Local governments differed in the intensity of their recommendations and warnings. The vibrant San Francisco Bay Area, home to Silicon Valley, entered a three-week lockdown on March 17, with New York City following suit five days later. Mayors in cities elsewhere with lower population densities did not go to such lengths.

All the while, economic woes deepened, with Wall Street triggering circuit breakers that halted trading three times by mid-March. The Federal Reserve further slashed interest rates in a bid to shield the economy from a crisis.

On March 26, the country led the number of reported coronavirus cases, becoming the new epicenter of the pandemic.

As the outbreak drags into April, hospitals nationwide are feeling the crunch as they lose billions of dollars due to revamping their facilities for emergency care in the face of patient surges. Non-urgent surgeries and other profitable operations have to be cut, while physicians and other medical staff have to reduce patient visits.

The Trump administration is only beginning to roll out 30 billion U.S. dollars in grants to hospitals this month, but in the meantime, cash-strapped institutions are furloughing hundreds of employees.

While deaths in the country continue to climb and surging unemployment places an unprecedented burden on government institutions, Trump is eying an economic restart in May. Even that target is being contested by skeptical health authorities such as FDA commissioner Stephen Hahn, who said it's too early to tell.

While expert competence still exists in the U.S. government, politics and mixed messaging continues to hamper federal efforts to direct a coherent response to this formidable disease.

US Trump Virus Economy Testing

President Donald Trump says there is no need to test the entire U.S. population amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"We're going to do testing. But you don't need to test 325 to 350 million people because, number one, it's unnecessary," said Trump.

"Vast numbers, vast areas of our country don't need this. I think you agree with me on that. You just don't need it. Now we have certain hotspots."

Trump's comments comes as the worldwide number of deaths tracked by Johns Hopkins University hit a bleak milestone of 100,000 since late December, when the outbreak emerged in China.

More than 1.6 million people around the globe have been infected, by the university's count.

The true number of lives lost is believed to be much higher because of limited testing, cover-ups by some governments, and different counting practices.

For example, in places like New York, Italy and Spain, many victims who died outside a hospital - say, in a home or a nursing home - have not been counted.

The U.S. had over 18,000 dead, putting it on track to overtake Italy as the country with the highest death toll. Almost a half-million Americans were confirmed infected.

President Trump also spoke about fighting for financial help for Boeing and other businesses and a look foward to the fourth quarter of the year for a lift in the economy following the pandemic's effect on the country.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough that clear up in two to three weeks. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death.

President Donald Trump sent out an Easter message from the Oval Office Friday as Christians around the world are encouraged not to gather for the holiday amid the coronavirus pandemic.

More than 473,000 people have tested positive for COVID-19 in the United States and over 17,000 have died.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and a cough that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and could lead to death.

US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday social distancing and other measures aimed at stopping the spread of the coronavirus were having an impact.

At the daily White House briefing, Trump told reporters Americans were heading into the "final stretch" and that there was "light at the end of the tunnel."

Health experts have suggested social distancing as one of the key measures to tackle the global pandemic.

Weekly death totals are expected to reach a new high in the United States this week.

More than 12,000 people have died from the virus in the US.

But President Trump sounded a note of optimism.

"If every American continues to strictly adhere to social distancing guidelines, we can defeat the invisible enemy and save countless lives," Trump said.

The president also urged Congress to pass a $250 billion dollar package to assist small businesses during the pandemic.

The Trump administration is seeking the funds to support a program designed to help small businesses and keep them from laying off workers in the midst of the coronavirus outbreak.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough, that clear up in two to three weeks.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia, and could lead to death.

The numbers are changing and they're changing rapidly. And soon we'll be over that curve. We'll be over the top and we'll be headed in the right direction. I feel strongly about that."

This is a tribute to the discipline and the devotion of the American people.

We're hopefully heading toward a final stretch. The light at the end of the tunnel, as I was saying."

It's incredible, actually, which is allowing our small businesses to keep employees on the payroll and get ready for the opening."

China approved the start of clinical trials on a recombinant vaccine for the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19), which was developed by China's Academy of Military Medical Sciences in Wuhan City of central China's Hubei province on Monday.

Chen Wei is the leader of the research team and also an academician with the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

China's National Medical Products Administration approved the start of clinical trials on the COVID-19 vaccine after a review meeting on Tuesday afternoon.

Since arriving in Wuhan on Jan. 26, Chen's team has been racing against time in cooperation with local enterprises to develop a recombinant novel coronavirus vaccine. They carried out relevant researches on safety pharmacology, pharmacodynamics, general toxicology and others, on the basis of their prior success in developing an Ebola vaccine.

The team has rapidly completed various tasks including the design of the COVID-19 vaccine. Then, the safety and effectiveness evaluation of the vaccine was completed and its quality had been reconfirmed.

"In accordance with international standards and domestic laws and regulations, we have made preliminary preparations for its safety, effectiveness, controllable quality and mass production. We have made all preparations to start the formal clinical trial at any given time," said Chen.

Chen and her team will focus on the following clinical trials after the approval.

"We are now in a global village. We are a community of shared future for mankind, and vaccine is one of the most powerful scientific and technological weapons to end the novel coronavirus epidemic," said Chen.

Germany Virus Patient

On the fifth day after falling ill with the new COVID-19 respiratory disease, Karoline Preisler could finally breathe again without severe lung pain.

But the 48-year-old was still very weak and ill, had slept only three hours at the isolation ward of a hospital in northeastern Germany and worried about her husband and children.

Preisler, a legal practitioner and local politician with the pro-business Free Democrats party from the small town of Barth on the Baltic Sea, fell ill on Wednesday night, a few hours after she was tested positive.

Her husband Hagen Reinhold, a federal lawmaker with the Free Democrats, also tested positive and was put under isolation in Berlin.

Their nine-year-old twins and their 11-year-old tested negative but had been ordered by the health authorities to stay home in Barth in self-isolation with their mother.

Reinhold was allowed to return to take care of the children in Barth before Preisler was admitted to the hospital Saturday morning.

Isolated and sick, Preisler turned to the internet for first-hand information but was unable to find much online from other patients sharing their experiences with COVID-19, so she decided to get things started.

Under the hashtag #coronatagebuch, or #coronadiary, Preisler began tweeting frequent updates to her more-than 5,000 followers about life with COVID-19.

She has posted hollow-eyed pictures of herself with mouth protection, uploaded photos of cleaning staff in full protective gear taking out contaminated clothes from her hospital room and a selfie of her receiving oxygen through thin tubes in her nose.

She frequently, and intimately, updates her readers about how she is dealing with the virus, sometimes well, sometimes not so well, as millions around the globe worry, but still know so little about how COVID-19 can play out on a personal level.

With new infections dwindling in Asia, Europe has become the main front line of the fight against COVID-19.

As of Tuesday, March 17, the virus had infected more than 182,000 worldwide and killed more than 7,150, though more than 79,000 people have already recovered.

In Germany, a country of 83 million, Preisler is one of some 7,300 people who have been tested positive, according to a count kept by Johns Hopkins University.

China, Italy, Iran, South Korea and Spain have the most infections.

For most people, the coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.  

Preisler has not been diagnosed with pneumonia, but due to a health precondition, the illness affected her worse than most people her age.

On Thursday, when Preisler already suffered from shortness of breath, she and her kids marked off areas of their home with tape, turning parts of it into a makeshift isolation ward for mom, while leaving the rest of the house to the healthy kids.

Preisler was too sick to cook, so the children took over the kitchen, making waffles topped with lots of powdered sugar and browsing through cookbooks to come up with other recipes.

Friends went grocery shopping and dropped the food in front of the family's home, since none of them were allowed to get in due to the quarantine.  

On Twitter, Preisler updated her followers with a grim sense of humor about the latest developments.

"Dear corona diary, here's a positive approach ... somebody who cannot breathe well saves food. It's too exhausting (to eat). My fitness tracker is proud of my weight loss. Welcome hip bones, that I could live to see you again," Preisler wrote on the second day of her illness.

Despite trying to cheer up her followers with cheeky tweets, Preisler progressively started feeling worse.

She couldn't go to the hospital though, because she couldn't leave her quarantined children alone.

It was only on Friday night that her husband, who was showing only mild symptoms, got permission from health authorities to drive home by car from Berlin in full protection gear without stopping once for gas so he could join her and the kids again.

The next morning, Preisler was admitted to the Krankenhaus am Sund hospital in the city of Stralsund.

She started getting oxygen and inhaled medications that have improved her shortness of breath, but it is not clear yet, when the doctors will release her.

Preisler said she received positive and encouraging responses to her German-language social media postings from all over Germany and Europe and from as far away as Winnipeg, Canada.

"At some point this isolation will end and then many people around me will be sick and I will not be able to get infected anymore, but I will be able to give help. I am currently experiencing a lot of help myself and I am looking forward to the moment when I can give it back because we are at the beginning of a pandemic, it will get worse and then I will be there to help" said Preisler.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

The vast majority of people recover from the new virus.

According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

A senior doctor on the frontline of the fight against the new coronavirus is urging colleagues and authorities outside of Italy to create new intensive care capacity as soon as they can in order to preempt the spread of the pandemic.

Professor Sergio Cattaneo, Director of Anaesthesiology and intensive therapy at "Spedali Civili di Brescia" said the move would be the best way for others to learn from Italy's experience with the spread of the disease.

Cattaneo was speaking during an exclusive interview with the Associated Press at the hospital in one of Italy's worst hit provinces.

He said Italy has ben forced to "chase after" the epidemic day after day, which put the healthcare system under unprecedented stress.

After the initial shock, in Lombardy extensive efforts have been focused on creating more intensive care capacity, partly by shutting down operating theatres to direct resources to where they're most needed.

"If the spreading of this epidemic is not put under control, it will bring all hospitals to their knees" even in countries and regions with excellent healthcare systems, he said.

Lombardy can count on one of Europe's best healthcare systems. With 750 to 800 intensive therapy beds for a population of 10 million people, it normally exceeds its needs and is able to help other regions in that regard.

But even in Lombardy, Cattaneo said, he and his colleagues were shocked at how quickly the epidemic has spread so far.

In a matter of two to three weeks, they had to admit a total 1,200 patients to intensive care. Over 850 were still receiving intensive care at the time of the interview. The healthcare is barely able to cope thanks to the expansion of capacity, which is still ongoing at full steam.

Cattaneo emphasised health professionals are dealing with a new disease, and so far there is no therapy for it.

Antiviral drugs are being tested, and off-label drugs used on selected patients to treat the most serious consequences of the disease, but "We can't say these drugs work" as scientific evidence about their efficacy is still missing.

Hence, the need to contain the spread of the virus.

At outdoor emergency structures built on the hospital ground to test and screen potential new COVID-19 cases, personnel work shifts of up to 18 hours.

And an increase in patiens arriving with already serious symptoms has been registered over the past few days.

Even with the heroic efforts of its doctors, Lombardy continues to count its dead, with a local paper featuring ten pages of obituaries on Sunday.

Still, the heartwarming, encouraging feedback Cattaneo and his staff receive on a daily basis by local residents fuels their spirits.

And these doctors definitely understand the human side of this emergency.

A member of Cattaneo's team, Doctor Luigi Filippini uses tablets to connect patients in intensive care - including those who are intubated and even those in a coma - to their loved ones via video conference.

Cattaneo praises the initiative, saying this is crucial for the wellbeing of the relatives and patients alike.

The whole experience "will make us much stronger" Cattaneo says.

Italy is the hardest-hit European country with nearly 28,000 cases and 2,158 deaths from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

The vast majority of people recover from the new virus. According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

Worldwide, more than 179,000 people have been infected and more than 7,000 have died. Over 78,000 have recovered, most of them in China.

What we're doing here and is saving us has been to close down operating theatres, to reduce surgeries in order to direct both human and material resources to intensive therapy."

Ambulances in Italy's capital were busy transporting patients to a new hospital specifically equipped to tackle the new coronavirus on Tuesday morning.

Footage shows patients, some with faces blurred in accordance with Italy's laws to protect their identity, being brought in to the new facility by paramedics clad in protective suits, masks and gloves.

The new clinic opened on Monday and is quickly filling its beds with patients coming from the nearby Agostino Gemelli University Policlinic and from the Rome area.

At the Agostino Gemelli University Policlinic, 21 new ICU units and 32 new beds for infective diseases were opened on Monday morning, as part of the new Columbus Covid 2 Hospital, an area fully dedicated to the COVID-19 cases in order to support the regional health authorities in containing the pandemic.

Within 10 days the Columbus Covid 2 Hospital will be completed with 74 new beds and 59 ICU units: 20 doctors, 65 nurses and 22 social-health operator will be working for hospitalizations of Covid patients, while 48 anaesthetists and 180 nurses will be committed to the ICU units.

The new hospital was created in a building previously dedicated to orthopaedic wards and quickly turned into an infective disease unit.

The Columbus Covid 2 Hospital belongs to the Gemelli, the biggest private hospital integrated in the free public health care system in Italy.

In 2005 Pope John Paul II was hospitalized at Gemelli, which is also an important medicine university and a medical research center.

The main Coronavirus hub in Rome is currently the infective disease hospital Spallanzani.

Italy reported another jump in infections Monday, up more than 3,000 to 27,980.

With 2,158 deaths, including 349 more in just the last 24 hours, Italy now accounts for well over a quarter of the global death toll.

Cases, however, slowed in Lombardy, the hardest-hit region.

The coronavirus pandemic has infected more than 181,000 people and killed more than 7,000 worldwide.

For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough.

For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

The vast majority of people recover from the new virus. According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

Shoppers queued outside supermarkets in Paris on Tuesday as France imposed restrictions to curb the spread of the new coronavirus.

France and the United Kingdom followed other European countries in deciding to limit people's movements outside home as the European Union considered closing its external borders to foreign travelers Monday.

French President Emmanuel Macron said that starting on Tuesday, people will only be allowed to leave their homes in France for necessary activities such as shopping for food or taking a walk.

The restrictions put France much closer to a full lockdown of the population, unprecedented actions taken in Italy and Spain in response to the virus pandemic.

Macron said gatherings with family and friends would be prohibited and workers should only commute to their jobs if working from home isn't feasible.

France now has more than 6,600 cases of the virus, including 148 deaths.
