Trump says ready to help Iran with coronavirus if asked

The patient was described as being in his late 50s and having a high health risk before contracting the virus.

The concern over containing the virus at the southern USA border comes as the Trump administration also weighs possible restrictions on the entry of travelers from South Korea, Italy and Japan.

The U.S.is banning travel to Iran in response to the outbreak of the new coronavirus.

"We are urging Americans to not travel to the areas in Italy and the areas in South Korea that are most affected by the coronavirus", Pence said. He tried to keep the American people calm and the Democrats accused him of not taking the threat seriously.

Pence said that those receiving treatment for the virus in the USA have the "prayers of millions".

Trump said additional cases are likely in the United States but said the illness will be survivable for the vast majority who contract it.

With the virus spreading quickly in some countries, France on Saturday cancelled all gatherings of 5,000 people or more in a bid to contain the coronavirus outbreak.

Vice President Mike Pence announced the new restrictions and warnings as President Donald Trump said 22 people in the USA have been stricken by the new coronavirus, including four deemed "very ill" and that additional cases are "likely".

In the U.S., the first death as a result of the Wuhan coronavirus was announced in the state of Washington on Saturday, with three more cases reported in California, Washington and Oregon. "Our hearts go out to his family and friends", the statement went on, reflecting some early confusion over the gender of the victim.

"You would think that you'd have a president of the United States leading, working with scientists all over the world, bringing people together to figure out how we're gonna deal with this crisis".

President Trump at the press briefing on February 29. The U.S. has a total of about 60 confirmed cases. The virus has spread across 50 countries, claiming over 2,800 lives - mostly in China - and has infected some 80,000.

In a separate report, state media said Kim supervised a military drill that simulated an attack on an island target.

Thousands of people across the West Coast who might have come into contact with infected individuals are being monitored for signs of infection. A news conference will be held later today.

Trump said he was considering additional restrictions, including closing the US border with Mexico in response to the virus' spread, but later added: "This is not a border that seems to be much of a problem right now". Speaking at a rally in SC he accused Democrats of "politicizing" the coronavirus threat and boasted about preventive steps he's ordered in an attempt to keep the virus that originated in China from spreading across the United States. "They tried anything. And this is their new hoax".

The administration has faced significant criticism for its handling of coronavirus, as Democrats point to cuts at the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) under Trump's leadership.

The FDA has ramped up its laboratory testing, and more USA cases have been reported this week, some of which can not not be explained by foreign travel - a previous common factor for victims of the virus, which is believed to have begun in Wuhan, China.

Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg said he was "disturbed" Saturday by President Donald Trump's use of the word hoax surrounding the coronavirus epidemic and called for a reliance on science to fight the disease. "We will have great professionals over there", Trump said at the annual Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) near Washington. Since then, however, the number of reported cases has continued to climb.
