Pence tested, New Jersey, Italy cases jump

As more U.S. states enact strict stay-at-home orders to slow the community spread of COVID-19, Italy’s daily death toll continues to climb: Almost 800 more people have died from the virus, officials said Saturday, marking a new daily high.

The news comes as Vice President Mike Pence said Saturday that he and his wife plan to be tested for coronavirus. A staffer for vice president has tested positive for COVID-19.

The White House’s coronavirus task force’s Saturday briefing included several other updates: 

  • Coronavirus testing is expanding rapidly across the country and 195,000 Americans who are symptomatic have been tested, Pence said.
  • Americans should continue to avoid gathering in public. “Stay at home and save lives,” President Donald Trump said.
  • Americans who do not have symptoms should not get tested. Dr. Anthony Fauci said limiting who gets tested will free up in-demand protective equipment.
