The coronavirus outbreak hit home Wednesday among the well-born and the desperately poor alike. Britain’s Prince Charles tested positive and India locked down its 1.3 billion people, or one-sixth of the Earth’s population.

Meanwhile, U.S. lawmakers finally agreed on a massive domestic aid package of $3 trillion and would give one-time payments of $1,200 per adult and $500 per child directly to the public, and the death toll in Spain shot up.

 More than 435,000 people worldwide have been infected by the virus and more than 19,000 have died, according to  Johns Hopkins University. Overall, more than 111,000 have recovered.
