The president held a press briefing on Monday afternoon at the White House to discuss the updated government guidance to stop the spread of the virus.

Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) on Monday called for the United States to take more drastic measures to address the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, including a national “shutdown” that would only exclude “absolutely essential work” and stipends to affected workers to assist them in paying their bills as the pandemic continues to unfold across the globe.

“The time has come for extraordinary measures to combat the Chinese coronavirus. What seems extreme today will seem obvious tomorrow,” Cotton, an outspoken skeptic of the House’s relief package, said on Monday.

Cotton prefaced his proposal by referring to Italy, which now faces a health care crisis after an explosion of coronavirus cases in the nation. The crisis has led to overwhelmed hospitals rationing care for older, sicker patients.
