Monday, 30th March Daily Roundup

Here’s a quick summary of what has happened around the world over the last 24 hours, brought to you exclusively by British Herald

Local News

1,228 people have died so far in the United Kingdom after testing positive for coronavirus, which is an increase of 209. The previous increase had seen the death toll rise by 260 people. Britons may face lockdown measures of some sort for six months or longer, according to England’s Deputy Chief Medical Officer Jenny Harries. Britons must be prepared for a significant lockdown period while the government attempts to tackle the coronavirus outbreak. Britain’s lockdown measures to curb coronavirus spread may last months and may be lifted only gradually. All parts of Britain have been on an emergency footing, one that hasn’t been seen since World War Two, in the coronavirus fight. 

Prince William and Duchess Kate urged people to look after their mental health during the coronavirus outbreak.

World News

President Donald Trump extended his stay-at-home guidelines until the end of April, dropping a hotly criticized plan to get the economy up and running by mid-April after a top medical adviser said more than 100,000 Americans could die from the coronavirus outbreak.

The reversal by Trump, which he said would be disclosed in greater detail on Tuesday, came as the U.S. death toll topped 2,460 from the respiratory disease, according to a Reuters tally, with more than 141,000 cases, the most of any country in the world.

“The peak, the highest point of death rate, is likely to hit in two weeks,” Trump told a coronavirus briefing in the White House Rose Garden, flanked by top advisers and business leaders, “Nothing would be worse than declaring victory before the victory is won.”

He told Americans: “The better you do, the faster this whole nightmare will end.”
