What you need to know today about the virus outbreak

President Donald Trump is bracing the nation for a death toll that could exceed 100,000 people. Trump extended restrictive social distancing guidelines through April. He bowed to public health experts who presented him with even more dire projections for the expanding coronavirus pandemic. It was a stark shift in tone by the president, who only days ago mused about the country reopening and being ”raring to go” in time for Easter. Global infections now total more than 720,000. And more than 34,000 people have died around the world.
