Anthony Fauci, the U.S. government’s top infectious disease specialist, warned lawmakers that coronavirus cases could rise to 100,000 a day if behaviors don’t change. The European Union extended a travel ban for Americans, deeming the U.S. response to the outbreak insufficient.

Weekly deaths involving coronavirus in England and Wales fell to their lowest in 12 weeks, and Prime Minister Boris Johnson committed to spend billions of pounds on infrastructure to rebuild the U.K. economy.
