Six chilling estimates underscore danger of coronavirus to public health and the economy

Joe Biden’s sweeping victories in the Florida, Illinois and Arizona primaries make it nearly impossible to stop him from clinching the Democratic presidential nomination. Yet the former vice president’s address to supporters – via a live stream from his home in Wilmington, Del. – focused on the novel coronavirus pandemic. “I know that we as a people are up to this challenge,” he said.

His rival Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) didn’t address the election at all on Tuesday evening. Instead, in his own live-streamed comments from Washington, he exclusively made the case for a $2 trillion plan to combat the pandemic.
