President Trump’s top doctor, Anthony Fauci and other experts warns coronavirus is ten times more lethal than seasonal flu and “many, many millions” will be infected across America.

Dr Fauci, the director of National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said at congressional hearing on the outbreak, the “bottom line, its going to get worse.”

“If we are complacent and don’t do really aggressive containment and mitigation, the number could go way up and be involved in many, many millions. If we contain we could flatten it.”

American and Chinese scientist have given a grim warning saying, the true number of cases in the US are far higher than the confirmed 1,056 cases.

The scientists from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and Peking University in Beijing released a report warning that eight confirmed coronavirus cases left Wuhan, China to the US before January.

They have provided a conservative rate that it is most likely they have each passed it on to at least two people, therefore it is more likely 9,484 people would have been infected in the US by 1 March.

The US and Chinese scientists said they simulated the coronavirus outbreak using confirmed numbers, that 20 people in America had the virus by 29 February.

From those 20 infected people eight did visit Wuhan, China before they returned to America.

The US President, Donald Trump blames the EU for not acting quickly enough to contain coronavirus and he claims virus clusters were “seeded” European’s and has banned flights.

All fights from mainland Europe are now suspended for 30 days following the rapid spread of coronavirus globally.

The flight ban starts from midnight on Friday but the ban will not apply to the UK.

Trump said: “We made a lifesaving move with early action on China. Now we must take the same action with Europe.”

Charles Michel, president of the European Council tweeted his reaction, “Following the travel ban @realDonaldTrump announced, we will assess the situation today.

“Economic disruption must be avoided. #Europe is taking all necessary measures to contain the spread of the #COVID19 virus, limit the number of affected people and support research.”
