China paid homage on Saturday to victims of the covid-19 in the place where the global pandemic began, as Americans were warned to wear masks amid fears the disease can be spread by breathing.
The advice came as America logged another huge rise in its death toll, almost 1,500 in a day and as new infections continued unabated.
Since Coronavirus emerged late last year, around 1.1 million people have fallen ill. Almost 60,000 people have died.
China, which appears to be over the worst of its outbreak, on Saturday held a national day of mourning for its dead, well over 3,000 people have died since the covid-19 emerged there late last year.
