Americans should work and learn at home, avoid gathering in groups of more than 10 people, stay away from restaurants, and only go out when necessary, President Donald Trump said on Monday afternoon. More than 90 people in the United States have died from COVID-19, the disease caused by the new coronavirus, as of Tuesday morning. Doctors confirmed close to 5,000 cases of the disease in the country. In the San Francisco Bay Area, six counties issued shelter-in-place orders, telling nearly 7 million people to leave their homes only for food, medicine, and exercise.
