The death toll from coronavirus in Italy today passed that for China. After another 427 people died in the past 24 hours Italy’s total now exceeds 3,400. And the United States has told Americans not to travel abroad, advising its citizens to come home now if possible. The State Department said that Americans who don’t return “should be prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.”
