Trump Writes to Kim; Singapore Tightens Entry: Virus Update Mar 22, 2020
More countries tightened international and domestic travel as the coronavirus spread showed little signs of easing, with the number of infections topping 300,000 globally.

Italy is shutting almost all industrial output after reporting the most coronavirus deaths in a day. The U.S. closed in on a deal for an aid package to boost the virus-battered economy by $2 trillion.

Infections surged in countries including U.K., France and Thailand. Spain’s leader said the outbreak will worsen this week. U.K. pubs closed, and New York will shut non-essential businesses on Sunday.

China’s Hubei province, which was the epicenter of the outbreak, had no new cases for a fourth day. Australia deployed an additional A$66 billion ($38.2 billion) in stimulus. Singapore will bar short-term visitors from entering or transiting through the city-state, while work-permit holders risk not being able to enter anytime soon.

Key Developments:
Worldwide cases exceed 307,000, more than 13,000 dead
Italy deaths jump 19% to 4,825; cases rise to 53,578
U.S. cases top 26,000
