Guess there will be no Tariff Cut. Trump Sticks to His China Tariff Guns, Ignoring Pleas for Relief

On Mar. 21, excluding Hong Kong, Macau, and Taiwan, there are 1 domestic new case and 6 deaths in China. There are 45 imported cases from overseas (table 1). Hubei province, including Wuhan, still has zero new case, zero new suspected case, and zero cumulative suspected case (table 2). There are 72,244 cured cases, 5,549 existing cases, and 81,054 cumulative confirmed cases (chart).
So far, there have been 314 imported cases from overseas since Mar. 4, when the first case was reported. It's absolutely imperative for China to prevent imported case at this juncture. Some commentators with ulterior motives simply cannot wait for the second wave to sweep through Asia.
