People from China went to Italy instead US after ban - Trump

United States President Donald Trump said in an interview with Fox News on Thursday Washington correctly responded to the COVID-19 outbreak by initiating a travel ban on China very early on, despite criticism.

Trump insisted the government's decision was right as many Chinese citizens, after not being allowed to enter the US, visited Italy instead. According to him, if other countries have reacted similarly, their infection spread would be much lower.

Italy is currently the epicenter of the disease in Europe with 8,165 total deaths and has surpassed China, the country where the pandemic began.
