Dr Anthony Fauci, director of America's National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, has warned the COVID-19 outbreak could kill 100,000 to 200,000 Americans.Speaking at the White House briefing on Sunday, Dr Fauci - a leading figure in the Trump administration's coronavirus task force - said the projection was"entirely conceivable" if not enough is done to mitigate the crisis.

"It's a horrible number," Mr Trump said."We all together have done a very good job."Funeral home where phone won't stop ringingMr Trump claimed that some hospitals and healthcare workers were"hoarding" ventilators which are in scarce supply across the US.

"We have to release those ventilators - especially hospitals that are never going to use them," he told reporters.The president said he also wanted the governor and mayor of New York to check why"a hospital that's getting 10,000 masks goes to 300,000 masks during the same period", adding:"I think people should check that because there's something going on.

"I don't think it's hoarding, I think it's maybe worse than hoarding."Trump seems to be suggesting there’s some kind of black market market being run out of hospitals. That is wild and certainly not what we’re hearing from any healthcare workers in New York. They’re desperate. Some say they’ve been forced to wear the same mask for a week.
