Coronavirus: President Trump suspends all flights to US from Europe except UK and Ireland for next 30 days (Video)

President Donald Trump has announced that he is suspending all flights to U.S from Europe except UK and Ireland for the next 30 days in a bid to reduce the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in America.

Trump made the announcement as he addressed the nation on the coronavirus outbreak from the Oval Office in the White House on Wednesday night.

According to him, the policy goes into effect on Friday at midnight.

We will be suspending all travel from Europe, except the United Kingdom, for the next 30 days. The policy goes into effect Friday at midnight.— The White House (@WhiteHouse) March 12, 2020

"We have seen dramatically fewer cases of the virus in the United States than are now present in Europe," Trump said, adding that. "The European Union failed to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China and other hot spots. As a result, a large number of new clusters in the United States were seeded by travelers from Europe."

"We are at a critical time in the fight against the virus," Trump said. "We made a life-saving move with early action on China. Now we must take the same action with Europe. We will not delay. I will never hesitate to take any necessary steps to protect the lives, health and safety of the American people. I will always put the well-being of America first."

The president also said that the halt on travel from Europe would not include the United Kingdom, and that there would be "exemptions for Americans who have undergone appropriate screenings."

After Trump's address, his administration made clear it was not as drastic as the President stated: 'The ban will apply only to foreign nationals and not to American citizens who had been screened before entering the country, mimicking restrictions he applied to China last month.

Dangote loses N240 billion in five hours due to coronavirus

Africa’s richest man Aliko Dangote suffered a huge loss due to coronavirus on Wednesday March 11, as he lost N240 billion in five hours.

Dangote’s firms under the parent-company 'Dangote Group', suffered huge losses just after the World Health Organisation (WHO) declared coronavirus a pandemic (spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time).

The Nation reported that Dangote Cement Plc which is Nigeria’s most capitalised quoted company and accounts for more than 20 per cent of the total market capitalisation, led the decline with the maximum daily allowable drop of 10 per cent or N17, which is equivalent to net depreciation of N289.68 billion.

Dangote Sugar Refinery (DSR) Plc and NASCON Allied Industries Plc lost N1.8 billion and N3.05 billion. Dangote Cement’s share price dropped by N17 from N170 to close at N153. NASCON Allied Industries declined by N1.15 to close at N3.05 while DSR lost 15 kobo to close at N9.75 per share.

NBA suspends its season after player tests positive for coronavirus

The National Basketball Association is suspending its season after a player tested positive for coronavirus.

The league made the announcement on Wednesday night after the NBA game between the Utah Jazz and Oklahoma City Thunder was abruptly postponed.

The players from both teams were already on the court at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City for warm-ups when they were called back to the locker rooms to inform them about a player who has been infected with coronavirus.

The NBA said the affected player was not in the arena and the test results were reported shortly before tip-off.

"The NBA is suspending gameplay following the conclusion of tonight's schedule of games until further notice," the NBA said in a statement. "The NBA will use this hiatus to determine next steps for moving forward in regard to the coronavirus pandemic."

“A player on the Utah Jazz preliminarily tested positive for COVID-19. The test result was reported shortly prior to the tipoff,” according to the news release.

“At that time, tonight’s game was canceled. The affected player was not in the arena.”

In a statement, the Utah Jazz said a player on the team tested negative for influenza, strep throat and an upper respiratory infection Wednesday morning.

"The individual's symptoms diminished over the course of today, however, in a precautionary measure, and in consultation and cooperation with NBA medical staff and Oklahoma health officials, the decision was made to test for COVID-19," the team said.

The player is in the care of health officials in Oklahoma City, the team said.

"We wish this player a full and speedy recovery, and appreciate the work of health officials in Oklahoma to test a member of the Utah Jazz for COVID-19, as well as their prudent decision to test the entire team at this time," Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox said in a joint statement.

They also added that they are working to identify individuals who have had close enough contact with the player as to have been potentially exposed.
