Donald Trump announces travel ban from Europe to US amid coronavirus scares

Donald Trump has announced ban for visitors from Europe for 30 days except United Kingdom as an attempt to stop spreading of coronavirus after more than 1,000 cases and 30 deaths in his country and 120,000 cases worldwide.

‘We will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days,’ Trump announced in a speech from the Oval Office to the nation.

The ban will begin Friday at midnight and will not include travel from the United Kingdom, Trump said in a national address late Wednesday, in which he also announced a series of economic relief plans, including low-interest loans for affected small businesses, and called on Congress to provide “immediate payroll tax relief.”
