Global virus death toll tops 3,000 as second man dies in US

The global death toll from the new coronavirus epidemic surpassed 3,000 on Monday after dozens more died at its epicentre in China and cases soared around the world, with a second fatality on US soil. The virus has now infected more than 89,000 people and spread to over 60 countries after first emerging in China late last year. A second person died in the northwestern US state of Washington as President Donald Trump, who has downplayed the risk of a major outbreak, faced criticism over his administration’s preparedness.
