Stock market upheaval exacerbating Trump's concerns over coronavirus

Trump has a briefing on the coronavirus with top aides Wednesday. He announced Wednesday morning that he would hold a news conference at the White House about coronavirus at 6 p.m. ET…

And behind the scenes, Trump is pushing for more travel restrictions on countries where the virus is spreading to, administration officials tell CNN, but so far no decisions have been made.

Administration officials have been privately weighing imposing additional travel bans similar to the one the US has already imposed with regard to foreigners who have been in China, a senior administration official and sources close to the White House said.

“If it gets to the point where we need to do that, we will,” a senior administration official said.
