said Tuesday he was growing “more and more angry at China” over the spread of the coronavirus, as American health officials warned they were not in “total” control of the pandemic.

He also warned that cases could more than double to 100,000 per day if and the public fail to take steps to suppress the pandemic.

US officials, meanwhile, have urged greater transparency from China.
