Breaking COVID-19 information: click here for WHO / CDC

Nearly fifty percent more people died Tuesday from COVID-19 than any previous day during the epidemic, according to the Wall Street Journal. New York, New Jersey, Louisiana, and Illinois recorded their highest single-day death tolls from the disease. The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, and Boston Globe report that black Americans are dying from COVID-19 at disproportionately higher rates. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot said that more than half of the people who tested positive, and seventy-two percent of virus-related fatalities, in Chicago were African American. The Globe says that Boston seems to have high rates of coronavirus infection in large black, Latino, and immigrant communities in Hyde Park, Mattapan, and East Boston. Although President Trump directed states and hospitals to obtain supplies on their own, the Los Angeles Times reports that the Federal Emergency Management Agency is seizing orders. The administration has not revealed how it determines what orders to seize and where to redirect them. President Trump has removed the Pentagon's acting inspector general, Glenn Fine, according to the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post. Removing Mr. Fine makes him ineligible to head the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee, which Congress created to oversee the administration's management of the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package. The Wall Street Journal reports that New York City hospitals have faced the full force of the coronavirus pandemic in recent days. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said there are signs the outbreak is plateauing, according to Newsday. New York's death toll from COVID-19 is now at 5,489. The New York Post reports that the USNS Comfort will treat up to 500 COVID patients. The first confirmed positive test for the coronavirus in New York City occurred on March 1 — and a week later, a lawyer from New Rochelle tested positive. The New York Times' J. David Goodman reports on how New York found itself one step behind the coronavirus outbreak. Detroit's neighborhoods of poverty and populations with poor health outcomes are compounding the city's coronavirus outbreak, according to the Wall Street Journal.  The Los Angeles Times says that testing is ramping up in California, but it is still behind most other states. Illinois' coronavirus death toll rose to 380 yesterday, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. With some preliminary signs that infections from the coronavirus are slowing, the Wall Street Journal reports that government officials and business leaders are turning their attention to reopening the economy. The Journal also reports that Nissan Motor Co. and Honda Motor Co. will furlough 24,000 U.S. workers. Amazon is suspending its Amazon Shipping delivery service, which competes directly with FedEx and United Parcel Service, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, Washington Post, and Los Angeles Times report that Wisconsin voters turned out to vote in the states' primary yesterday. In Milwaukee, the traditional 180 polling places were reduced to five. Some voters complained that absentee ballots they had requested never arrived.

Acting Navy Secretary Thomas Modly has resigned after the negative reaction to comments he made about the former captain of the coronavirus-stricken USS Theodore Roosevelt, according to the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Washington Post. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the sailors left onboard the Roosevelt to maintain and disinfect the ship with minimal personal protective equipment. At the direction of the Pentagon, the sailors are making masks out of t-shirts.

The Wall Street Journal, Chicago Sun-Times, and Dallas Morning News report that iconic singer-songwriter John Prine has died at the age of 73 of complications from COVID-19. Prine was hospitalized in late March and quickly deteriorated. Earlier this year, he was awarded a lifetime achievement Grammy.
