The Coronavirus death toll has topped 1000 people.
China reported its deadliest day yesterday (Tuesday) — 103 people died from the illness. The previous record was 97 on Monday.
Although the disease is still largely concentrated in China’s Wuhan province, nearly 500 cases have been reported in other countries — including 13 in the United States. (USA Today)
