COVID-19 Cases Reach two-million World-wide: US lead in total cases….Could this have been averted?
Today, New York has 241,041 cases, with a reported 17, 671 individuals having lost their battle with the deadly virus. California ranks 5th with a reported 30, 811 total cases, with 1,148 total deaths and 93 new cases as of Sunday, April 19.
The question many individuals are asking themselves across the country and around the world, “is there an end in sight?”
Dr. Anthony Fauci of the Allergy and Infectious Disease Bureau encouraged “Social distancing” in February it was reported by several major news outlets. The coronavirus does not have a date to finish its business of disabling and rendering even healthy individuals helpless and unable to breathe (at times) on their own.
While the President appear to focus more on the economy and has voiced opinions about “reopening the economy” in weeks. Governors have a different take and it is questionable if they will follow suit. California Governor Gavin Newsom as well as New York Governor Andrew Cuomo have taken the lead and began discussions and as well as strategic planning with governors in their areas referencing uniform plans get their regions back to work following the science and informed recommendations from the CDC.
“The safety of our citizens, our medical professionals, and those working to stock shelves and keep food and necessary products available is my first concern,” shared New York Governor Cuomo.
“Certainly we all would like to get back to normal, i.e., working, school, etc. That has to take a back seat to saving and preserving life.”
