President Trump to make "statement" Wednesday on coronavirus measures

US President Donald Trump said he would be making a statement later Wednesday on measures to confront the growing challenge from the spread of the coronavirus.

Trump said: "I'll be making a statement later on tonight as to what I have decided to do," Trump said at the White House, adding that it would be at about 8pm (0000 GMT).

Earlier he had tweeted he was "fully prepared to use the full power of the Federal Government to deal with current challenge of the CoronaVirus!"

Fallout from the spreading coronavirus has extended into acute difficulties for parts of the economy and a tanking stock market.
