March, 24: More than 10,000 confirmed coronavirus cases were reported in one day in USA. This raises the tally to 43,700. President Donald Trump has signed an executive order to stop hoarding of important medical supplies along with personal protective equipment.
Trump signed the executive order, warning that his government would take action against hoarding and excessive pricing of vital medical and personal protective equipment as well as supplies such as hand sanitisers and face masks.
