NEW YORK: US deaths from coronavirus could reach 200,000 with millions of cases, the government's top infectious disease expert warned on Sunday as New York, New Orleans, and other major cities said they would soon run out of crucial medical supplies.

Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, estimated in an interview with CNN that the pandemic could cause between 100,000 and 200,000 deaths in the United States. But Fauci, a leading member of President Donald Trump's coronavirus taskforce, quickly added: "I don't want to be held to that ... It's such a moving target that you can so easily be wrong and mislead people."
