News: Experts are fearing the Japan may become a hotspot for the virus. The country has taken very few measures to combat the spread of the virus and a health ministry projection showed that the lack of mitigating measures could lead to 400,000 deaths in the nation. Keep in mind that Japan does have the oldest population on average in the world. 

US President Donald Trump has halted funding for the WHO after the UN sub-organization failed to act before the virus went global. The WHO has also been peddling propaganda from the Chinese Communist Party since mid-January.
