New Delhi, Mar 30: The coronavirus pandemic continued to torment the US and Europe as the number of Covid-19 infections globally crossed 700,000 on Sunday. At least 33,000 people have died from the disease, with the US continuing to be the worst-hit country, followed by Italy, China, Spain and Germany. Struggling to cope with the outbreak, the Trump administration issued a travel advisory urging people of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, the worst-hit US states, to refrain from non-essential domestic travel for 14 days as the nationwide death toll crossed 2,000 - doubling in just two days.
