WASHINGTON (Diya TV)  — The worldwide death toll for COVID-19 hit a grim milestone. More than 102,000 people have died from the coronavirus, nearly 20,000 of those people in the U.S. While heath officials say the COVID-19 curve is starting to flatten thanks to social distancing measures, they also warn Texas and Florida are emerging hotspots with giant populations.

India is taking a different approach towards government spending when compared to the U.S. as the coronavirus battle lengthens, telling all departments to cut spending by 60%. These savage cuts will apply to just about anything other than the fight against the virus. Earlier this week, Indian members of Parliament and chief ministers all agreed to take a 30% pay cut.

Jack Dorsey, the CEO of both Twitter and Square, pledged $1 billion worth of his Square stock or 28% of his net worth to fight the coronavirus. Dorsey said he wanted the process to be transparent, so he created a public spreadsheet detailing where the funds will go.
