COVID-19 Crisis: 1 million new cases in United States in just two weeks.
THE SPEED at which the United States is trending in the wrong direction is astounding.
Shortly after the morbid day where one thousand people have died due to COVID-19, the United States is about to hit a new gruesome milestone of 4 million COVID-19 cases.
The rapid multiplication of infections is truly staggering. 99 days after the first reported case on January 21st, there were 1 million Americans infected by COVID-19.
After that, it took 43 days for the number of infected Americans to reach 2 million cases.
Then just like the zombie thriller, 28 days later the number of COVID-19 cases reached 3 million. Finally just two weeks later, the United States now has 4 million Americans infected with the novel coroanvirus making it one of the hardest hit first world countries on the planet.
States are once again reporting record breaking numbers of infections, and their respective governors are requiring face masks, hospital beds, and intensive care units.
Furthermore, at least 27 states have stopped or even rolled back their economic reopening due to the devastation caused by the highly infectious coronavirus.
United States President Donald Trump once again is giving an update from the White House Briefing Room, a practice that he has stopped for the past three months.
Trump said the coronavirus situation will “get worse before it gets better,” which echos an earlier statement by the CDC.
Likewise, CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield said the fall and winter will be “one of the most difficult times that we’ve experienced in American public”.
More important than ever to wear face masks
