U.S has reported at least 10000 deaths now. The country’s death toll has now exceeded the number of deaths from the virus in China. It has doubled from 5000 to 10000 in less than five days.
Cases are currently being reported to double every 3 days, 5 days and 7 days. The increase in deaths have been reported after the governors of the countries seek scarce ventilation. Also, the police have issued citations. This is to residents who have ignored orders to stay at home.
The infection rates have been expected to show a surge. Americans have also been urged to cover their faces with masks in public. The convention centres have also been converted into makeshift medical centres. Some of the states have also released prisoners. This is in an effort to reduce the spread of the infection.
As reported on Tuesday morning, at least 366238 people have been tested positive for the virus. This number is of cases across every state, plus Washington D.C. plus the four U.S. territories.
U.S.A has reported the highest number of cases of this outbreak. The looks of it is vastly different as of a month ago. At the start of March, only 70 cases had been reported. Most of these cases had history of overseas travel. This was the time when only limited testing was available. Since the beginning of April, the number of deaths have grown by thousands. It has doubled in some parts such as Indiana, Florida and many more.
