Good morning, it’s Tuesday, April 14.

Global cases are nearing two million.

The U.S. has 582,000 cases of the virus, Spain has 172,000 and Italy has over 159,000.

Global fatalities have surpassed 120,000.

There have been over 21,000 deaths from the virus in the U.S, Italy has over 20,000 fatalities and Spain has nearly 18,000 deaths.

Yesterday, France announced that the lockdown was being extended to May 11.

However, Italy is allowing some stores--such as book stores and shops selling children's clothing--to reopen.

India, on Tuesday, also extended its lockdown to May 3.

And in the U.S., governors from New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Rhode Island and Massachusetts said they would coordinate their actions on reopening businesses. 

The governors of California, Oregon and Washington announced a similar agreement.

“The house is still on fire,” said New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on a conference call with reporters. “We still have to put the fire out, but we do have to begin putting in the pieces of the puzzle that we know we’re going to need ... to make sure this doesn’t reignite.”

However, President Trump has said that the governors can’t do anything, “without the approach of the President of the United States.”
