The president also said health insurance companies had agreed to extend insurance coverage to cover coronavirus treatments as well as waive related co-payments.

The mortality rate for the general population is thought to be between 1 and 2 per cent for the coronavirus. 

But this rises to 8 per cent to those in their 70s, and to 15 per cent for over-80s. People with underlying conditions are at even greater risk. 

And while the risk for younger people are lower, they can spread the virus just as easily. 

Anyone visiting in close proximity to older folks should be very careful about hygiene – by washing their hands and perhaps staying away if they have a cold. 

But experts state not to avoid all contact as they believe this will do more harm than good. It could mean they become isolated, exacerbating loneliness.

A California doctor says three men he knows struck down with coronavirus are all in intensive care and are as young as 40 – contradicting claims that the disease only impacts the elderly.

Dr Sam Fink, who is based in the affluent town of Tarzana, began treating two of the men following their return home from a ski trip to Northern Italy late last month. Dr. Fink is friends with a third patient from the trip, who is also now in ICU battling against the virus.

‘I have never seen anything like this,’ Dr Fink told DailyMail.com on Tuesday

‘These people who are in the hospital are generally young. Forty, fifty, sixty. These are not elderly people. There are three people who are now in the ICU.

‘It is my understanding that one has underlying medical issues, but the other two sure don’t. Not having any underlying medical issues does not protect you,’ he warned. 

Dr Fink hit headlines earlier this week after he took to Facebook to urge all schools to close down amidst the coronavirus outbreak. The post was subsequently shared tens of thousands of times. 

The medic says he took to social media to share his concern about the alarming rate that the killer virus is spreading. He believes that closing down schools could help drastically slow the spread of the disease. 

‘I have never taken to Facebook, but the reason I did is because I have patients and I was really concerned about the number of patients,’ he said. ‘If this is true and this is a pattern, then we are not doing enough’.
