News:

The Chinese govt has revised its death toll by an entire 50% . It justified adding another ~1,500 deaths by saying with the outbreak in the country mostly contained they now have time to double check statistics. People around the world have been skeptical of data coming out of China since the beginning of the pandemic. The United States has tested over 3,423,000 people. For context, let's assume the US population is exactly 330 million people. That would mean roughly 1.03% of the US has been tested. At least 1,081 sailors have tested positive on France's aircraft carrier the Charles de Gaulle. This is up from the figure of less than 700 that we reported on a couple of days ago.
