The global death toll from the coronavirus outbreak has risen to 3,087, with the US reporting its sixth death; more than 90,000 people worldwide have now been diagnosed with the illness. The number of people in Australia who have contracted the virus has risen to 33; a doctor is among two people who have been infected via person-to-person transmission within the local community rather than while they were overseas. Health Minister Greg Hunt and Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy have warned that it is now impossible to contain the virus.
