A summary of the biggest developments in the global coronavirus outbreak

Key developments in the global coronavirus outbreak today include: Japan Olympics to be delayed for one year After a conference call between the Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, Tokyo’s governor, Yuriko Koike, and the International Olympic Committee president, Thomas Bach, the Olympics will be postponed for 12 months. Abe said a postponement was unavoidable if the 2020 Games could not be held in a complete manner amid the coronavirus pandemic. WHO: US has potential to be “epicentre of outbreak” A spokeswoman from the World Health Organization has said the US risks becoming the next centre of the coronavirus outbreak as the country is seeing a “very large acceleration” in cases. This comes amid concern the US president could be prioritising the economy in his crisis response. Trump said he was eager to reopen the US economy in weeks, not months, even as the death toll from the virus continued to rise. Spain death toll jumps overnight The number of new coronavirus cases in Spain jumped on Tuesday to 39,673 from 33,089 cases registered on Monday, the health ministry reported. Australia brings in tighter restrictions Large sections of the Australian economy and social life will be shut down, after the national cabinet agreed to a range of further restrictions on indoor and outdoor gatherings in addition to a ban on non-essential overseas travel to combat the Covid-19 outbreak. But despite the range of further restrictions, Scott Morrison said the national cabinet would not “just rush on the sense of an opinion of inevitability” towards a full lockdown, because measures to contain the spread of the virus may yet prevent it and more severe action would threaten the livelihoods of many Australians. Experts in Australia warn the country could have 50,000 new cases by Easter. Germany announces significant support package for economy Angela Merkel’s cabinet on Monday presented a support package worth hundreds of billions of euros to cushion the impact of the coronavirus crisis. Indonesia reports biggest daily increase in cases Indonesia on Tuesday confirmed 107 new coronavirus cases, the biggest daily increase to date in the South-east Asian country, bringing the total number of cases to 686. UK government gives more detail on UK lockdown The government had to clarify the rules around the UK lockdown amid confusion over who is allowed to travel to work, whether children can visit separated parents and what counts as exercise. Under the rules, people must stay at home unless they have to leave the house to work, to get essential supplies of food or medicine, to help the vulnerable or for one period of exercise a day. The biggest confusion was over whether workers should count their jobs as essential, with construction workers, taxi drivers and tradespeople unsure. Construction workers were told to still go to work but stay two metres apart and tradespeople, such as plumbers and electricians, could attend emergencies in people’s homes. South Africa cases rise to 554 as nation prepares for 21-day lockdown South Africa’s confirmed number of coronavirus cases rose to 554 from 402 a day earlier, as businesses raced to make plans for a nationwide lockdown from midnight on Thursday. Iran reports 122 deaths in last 24 hours Iran reported 1,726 new coronavirus cases in last 24 hours raising the total number to 24,811. China to lift travel restrictions in Hubei province All travel restrictions in and out of Hubei province, the centre of the pandemic, will be lifted on Wednesday, except for in the city Wuhan, which will have to wait until 8 April. Movement will be conditional on people having a health code clearance. Wuhan has been under lockdown since 23 January. Nationally, China reported 78 new cases on Tuesday, all but four of which were “imported”. Topics Read more: The Guardian
