As the United States began what President Trump warns will be the “toughest week” yet of the coronavirus crisis, CBS News has found some cash-strapped American hospitals are forcing staff to stay home at the worst possible time. 

As the nation’s death toll nears 10,000, front-line medics at one hospital in hard-hit New York City say the grim scenes in their emergency room are like something out of “The Twilight Zone.” 

Around the world almost 70,000 lives have been lost to the COVID-19 disease. While the U.S., Japan and Britain are among the many nations facing still-growing outbreaks, positive news is emerging from China and South Korea, and even the battered communities of Italy and Spain.
