Update (1930ET): In a major blow to the credibility of the gang of reporters who tried to corner President Trump during two press conferences on Friday and Saturday, the president has tested negative for the coronavirus, according to a statement from the White House.

“One week after having dinner with the Brazilian delegation in Mar-a-Lago, the President remains symptom free,” his physician, Sean P. Conley, said in a statement. “I have been in daily contact with the CDC and White House Coronavirus Task Force, and we are encouraging the implementation of all their best practices for exposure reduction and transmission mitigation.”

Trump took the test on Friday and revealed that he had taken the test during a press conference on Saturday. As we head into the evening, yet another first lady of a major developed economy has tested positive for Covid-19.

María Begoña Gómez Fernández, the wife of Spanish PM Pedro Sanchez, has the coronavirus.

In New Jersey, which just reported its first death, the mayor of the city of Teaneck New Jersey asked residents to self-quarantine at hoe and only leave for food or medicine.

Update (1805ET): The first coronavirus death in the state of Louisiana has been reported Saturday, according to a news release from Gov. John Bel Edwards. The deceased was a 58-year-old Orleans Parish resident with underlying health conditions who was being treated at Touro Infirmary Hospital and Medical Center in New Orleans.

The state has 67 confirmed cases (well, 66 now).

Read the release below:

“Now more than ever, we must remain vigilant against the spread of this illness by taking care of ourselves and each other, avoiding going into public areas if you are sick, practicing social distancing and washing your hands frequently with soap and water.”

“This underscores the fact that those with underlying health issues are most at risk from the coronavirus. Those with compromised immune systems and are older should be taking extra precautions to avoid becoming affected with the coronavirus.”

Elsewhere, Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell has made a video updating the world on his condition.

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves declared a state of emergency in response to coronavirus, bringing the total of states in the US who have declared a state emergency to 32, including Mississippi and Washington DC.

After the Pentagon announced new travel restrictions for all personnel earlier, it later confirmed that 10 US service members have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, along with 1 Defense Department civilian and two contractors, military officials said Saturday. This presumably doesn’t include the servicemembers who tested positive abroad.

In Connecticut, officials from the town of Stratford said that they are monitoring a second presumptive case of coronavirus in a Stratford High School student. The town’s first confirmed case was found in a school-age Stratford child earlier this week, according to WTNH.

Update (1720ET): As we previewed below, Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has signed the emergency decree Spain under an Italy-style lockdown as more European countries suspend air travel to infected countries. The decision to declare the lockdown, effective immediately, followed an emergency cabinet meeting Saturday night. Even the White House has scrapped its travel-ban exemptions for the UK and Ireland.

The new measures announced by Sanchez during a news conference on Saturday banned all Spaniards from leaving their homes except for:

  • Going to work
  • Buying food or essential supplies
  • Going to a hospital
  • Supporting an elderly person or a minor under their care

…Spain and France have joined in passing sweeping restrictions on movement and business. Late last week, several Latin American countries stepped up measures on to slow the spread of the coronavirus, halting flights to and from Europe, closing schools and canceling public gatherings. Brazil, Costa Rica, Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay, Honduras. On Friday, Colombia followed the US and closed its borders to travelers from Asia and Europe.

Europe was an example to the world: Half-measures and open borders don’t work to stop a pandemic. Quashing an outbreak like this requires a swift and heavy-handed response from federal authorities.

Health officials in Switzerland reported 234 new cases of coronavirus on Saturday, bringing the total to 1,359 cases, with 119 cases in Zürich, and 103 cases in Geneva.

In New York, Gov, Cuomo declared on Saturday that there are probably “thousands” of infected people walking around the state of New York.

“This is going to be everywhere,” Cuomo said. “My guess is there are thousands and thousands of cases walking around the state of New York.”

After French President Emmanuel Macron chastised citizens for not taking the outbreak seriously and ordered all cafes, bars, and restaurants to close as he imposed restrictions on movement and public life across France, as Bloomberg reports. Gatherings of more than 100 people have been banned. The Eiffel has been shut down.

Recently infected Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert announced Saturday that he would be donating over $500,000 to Vivint Smart Home Arena hourly employees and coronavirus-related social services in Utah, Oklahoma City, and France, which is his home country. Gobert apologized for mocking virus-control precautions before being infected.

In Israel, a country that has been notoriously paranoid about the virus, resulting in exceptionally effective (if at times excessive) containment measures. On Saturday, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu further tightened restrictions on Israelis by limiting gatherings to 10 people and closing all leisure and entertainment venues effective Sunday morning.

“We are at war against an invisible enemy,” Netanyahu said. “Defeating it depends on the steps that each of you takes. We must do everything in order not to infect and not to become infected.”

Elsewhere in the Middle East, Dubai has ordered all large events in March canceled and encouraged hotels to halt hosting weddings for the time being.

North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper closed schools for two weeks, a decision he announced during a press conference on Saturday. He also banned gatherings of more than 100 people and chided citizens for not respecting earlier restrictions. In South Carolina, the state Board of Medical Examiners and the state’s Board of Nursing said they would begin issuing temporary licenses to out-of-state medical professionals helping with the outbreak, according to a news release from Gov. Henry McMaster.

In what appears to be the first example of trials being rescheduled because of the outbreak, the Dallas Municipal Court has rescheduled trials and jury duty, according to a news release from the city of Dallas.

After dozens of countries banned cruise ships from arriving, the Bahamas said Saturday it would not be allowing the MS Braemar cruise ship, which has five confirmed coronavirus cases on board, to dock. Two cruise ships with a total of about 1,300 people on board are now quarantined off the coast of Chile as one passenger tested positive for coronavirus, said Chile’s Health Minister Jaime Manalich.

In Seattle, the mayor has halted residential evictions during the outbreak.

As of Saturday evening on the east coast, at least 2,548 cases of the novel coronavirus had been confirmed in the US, according to the state and local health agencies, governments and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Around the world, more than 150,000 cases have been confirmed.

Update (1445ET): As deaths and cases soar in Europe (4500 cases, 91 deaths), French PM Edouard Philippe has announced Italy-esque draconian measures to control the spread of Covid-19:

Update (3/14/2020 @ 2:35 PM CST) The press conference has concluded. VP Pence said the administration will make an announcement at 7pmET on Sunday regarding measures to speed up testing across the US.

Update (3/14/2020 @ 2:35 PM CST) As has become custom following every meeting of the White House coronavirus task force in the situation room, President Trump kicked off the press briefing, celebrating yesterday’s “record” market rebound (we’re not exactly certain about the record, but the market was clearly pleased), and insisting that the national emergency declaration and the new economic bill that has been passed by Congress and is awaiting Trump’s signature would give the government all the tools it needs to combat the virus, and enough economic support to ensure that all Americans will receive paid leave and coverage for any treatments related to the virus.

In response to one of the first questions of the press conference, Trump said he was tested for the virus, and that he was awaiting the results, which are expected in two or three days. Before reporters could interrupt him with accusations that he was being inconsistent, Trump assured them that he would stop shaking hands, but hadn’t done so yet out of force of habit, a problem that isn’t unique to him but is part of a broader adaptation by all Americans. Trump insisted that he felt Americans should avoid shaking hands, and should follow the federal guidelines for greetings and ‘social distancing’.

Trump delivered his remarks wearing a black ‘USA’ ball cap, which some found to be in poor taste. Dr. Fauci also confirmed that there 2,226 cases confirmed across the US, with 50 deaths.

VP Pence also announced that the travel ban had been expanded to include the UK and Ireland as of midnight on Sunday. As with the prior travel ban, US legal residents and citizens won’t be affected. The VP also said that the White House was working with the Republican-controlled Senate to explain the House rescue package and get it passed “expeditiously.”

The team also confirmed that “community-spread” has been confirmed in six states: Washington, Cali, New York, Oregon, Florida (though Gov. DeSantis reportedly disagreed with the fed’s finding) and, of course, Ohio.

The fact that the outbreak has shifted from China to Europe is what motivated the US to expand its travel ban to focus on Europe, Dr. Fauci said (note: the ban is only set to last for 30 days from the date it was announced on Wednesday).

While the US will see more cases and “more suffering and death” among the “vulnerable” of our society, but built-in that is a “challenge” – the opportunity to influence the course of the curve, to make it flatters, and ensure that the US health-care system isn’t overwhelmed by the outbreak

As an aside, one member of the CNN White House team was denied entry to the press conference because they had a temperature of 99.9.

Now that Democrats and Treasury Secretary Mnuchin have managed to strike a deal on the federal Covid-19 economic rescue package, which Trump said he fully supports, the White House task force is holding another press conference to update the public on the coronavirus containment effort.

Notably, Trump announced the press conference shortly after the White House announced that it was implemented new procedures lie mandatory temperature checks for everybody coming into close contact with the president (including reporters in the briefing room).

Though, if this truly is another task force update, it’s possible that Trump won’t play a big role, though he has shown a penchant for stealing the spotlight from Pence and the team.

As the task force prepared for the press conference, an official with the White House physician’s office went around the press workspace on Saturday morning and took the temperatures of reporters before they were ushered into the briefing room.

The coronavirus is hitting nations the world over, and facing a challenge unprecedented in recent history, officials are falling back on wartime tactics, and particularly rhetoric, with promises of grand emergency measures to try to keep things under control.

Emergency measures are mostly in the form of travel control, banning flights to and from certain places. There have been talks of mobilizing militaries, in practice, efforts are centered on enforcing quarantines that were already declared. Deeper measures as yet don’t seem to be happening.
