U.S. coronavirus death toll passes 3,000 as Spain and Italy honor their dead

March 31, 2020 / By Linda Givetash

With more than 3,000 killed by the coronavirus in the United States, according to numbers released Tuesday, the U.S. death toll is approaching that of China where the pandemic broke out.

Spain, meanwhile, saw a massive surge of 9,222 new confirmed cases and 849 deaths in a single day, its Health Ministry announced, bringing total cases to 94,417 and deaths to 8,189.

Spain and Italy each held a moment of silence to honor their dead at 12 p.m. (6 a.m. ET). The two countries account for more than half of the deaths globally.

On Monday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo warned the situation in his state is a sign of things to come if other parts of the country don’t act fast.

“There’s nothing unique about New Yorkers’ immune system. There is no American who is immune from this virus,” he told Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC’s The Last Word. “New York is just the test case for this. We’re the canary in the coal mine.”
