Coronavirus – Around The World
In the U.S., numbers are changing daily, as different parts of the country experience different levels of COVID-19 activity. All 50 states have reported cases (the CDC is providing a daily update of the numbers in the U.S., but says data provided by state public health departments should be considered the most up to date).
The CDC expects most people in the U.S. will be exposed to the virus in the coming months (such widespread transmission could mean large numbers of people needing medical care at the same time—which is why an important strategy is to try to delay the spread).
Meanwhile, people in the U.S. are facing significant disruptions, including unprecedented cancellations, postponements, and shutdowns of everything from schools to religious services as reports of community transmission.. States and cities across the U.S. are asking or ordering people to stay home. President Trump has activated the National Guard to assist California, New York, and Washington, which have been hit especially hard.
