March 24, 2020 / John Bacon, USA TODAY

The nation absorbed its 600th coronavirus death Tuesday as stocks roared higher, the Summer Olympics were delayed, and President Donald Trump said he hoped to “open up” the nation by Easter.

In Congress, leaders on both sides of the aisle said a stimulus deal was near.

The U.S. death toll reached 600 hours after growing by more than 100 in a 24-hour period. As of Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. had more than 49,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus, trailing only Italy and China. New York state, now testing more than 16,000 people daily, has more than half the U.S. cases.
