US live coronavirus updates: 470 people have died, New York cases top 16,000, at least 9 states order lockdowns — here’s the latest

The US has examined over 470 deaths from the coronavirus as of March 22. The country’s case tally is at least 35,000, with patients discharged in all 50 states and Washington, DC. The illness has also spread to Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands.

The World Condition Organization declared the outbreak a pandemic on March 11, and two days later President Donald Trump declared a governmental emergency.

Because county- and state-level health authorities are reporting the latest case counts before the Centers for Plague Control and Prevention (CDC) does, Business Insider is tallying those local reports and updating this story regularly to let out a comprehensive picture of where the virus is spreading in the US.

The virus originated in Wuhan, China, in December. It causes a respiratory malady known as COVID-19.
