US President Donald Trump warned ”there will be a lot of deaths” in the near future as the biggest economy in the world have yet to see a flattening of its epidemic curve.
 
“This will be probably the toughest week between this week and next week, and there will be a lot of death, unfortunately, but a lot less death than if this wasn’t done but there will be death,” Trump said. 
 
Spain took over from Italy the no. 2 of the most number of COVID-19-infected population with 126,168 cases.

Germany and France likewise took over the fourth position from China where the coronavirus outbreak first reported last January 2020. Earlier, a leaked US intelligence report said China, with 1.4 billion population, may have under-reported its figure of COVID-19 cases and death that it is sharing to the world.  China denied this accusation.
