U.S. Coronavirus Cases Surpass Those of China, Italy

And some people want to call off self-quarantining because they think they’re in the clear. We’re all still facing a bullet whether you like it or not.

U.S. Coronavirus Cases Surpass Those of China, Italy

The U.S. has overtaken China as the country with the most cases in the world of the novel coronavirus, marking a new milestone in the fight against the global pandemic.

China had held the top spot since the deadly virus began spreading there in December.

There were 82,404 confirmed infections across America, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The first case in the U.S.—a man in Washington state who had recently traveled to Wuhan, China—was reported on Jan. 21. Within six weeks, the U.S. began to see a surge in new infections and the country’s first deaths.

New York is the center of the pandemic in the U.S., with its 37,802 infections accounting for nearly half of all cases in the country and tens of thousands more than any other state.

The Trump administration is planning to issue guidelines categorizing counties across the nation as high-risk, medium-risk or low-risks, aiming to help state and local authorities decide whether to tighten or relax social-distancing measures designed to help slow infections.

China said Thursday it would close its borders to nearly all foreigners and drastically slash international flights in a bid to curb the reintroduction of the fast-spreading coronavirus from abroad.

Even China is closing down its borders. We have a ways to go before we’re out of the woods.

3. Whatever. I think its significant that China is

finally shutting down it’s borders.

But I don’t outright doubt this story. Yeah, China lies. What country doesn’t? We do too.

It’s easy to believe we’ve taken over the title as No1 in the world for this disease. This is the most selfish nation on a Earth, especially the youngest amongst us. And it doesn’t help that the ignorant buffoon mayor of NYC told people to party on even after the news about the pandemic hit the airwaves. THAT’S why NYC is in such dire straits. Now Cuomo wants every ventilator in the country.

This is NOT surprising. What matters now is how we deal with this problem from here on out.

4. What do you object to most? That China may have

reduced the number of new cases or that we haven’t even begun to get a handle on what’s facing this country?

7. If the U.S. had enacted social-distancing measures earlier, it wouldve saved lives.

trump's delay in adopting social distancing measures has resulted in thousands of deaths
