Coronavirus Update: 1 million cases of infection in the United States in 100 days

“100 days, 1 million confirmed cases of infection, the United States has turned upside down.” April 29 local time, the United States “New York Times” issued a sigh on this topic.

At the node where there are more than 1 million cases of new coronavirus infections, the New York Times made a simple review of what happened in the past 100 days.

The report said, “On January 20, the first positive case (new coronavirus test) appeared in the United States.”

“100 days ago, a 35-year-old man appeared in an emergency medical clinic in Snohomish County, Washington. He had cough and had a fever for 4 days, and the new coronavirus test was positive. He was the first to be discovered (new coronavirus Positive test). “

“Since then, more than 1 million people in the United States have tested positive for new coronavirus.”

The real-time statistics of the epidemic released by Johns Hopkins University in the United States show that as of 14:50 a.m. Eastern Time on April 28, the cumulative number of newly diagnosed cases in the United States exceeded 1 million, reaching 1002498 cases, and a total of 57533 deaths. The number of confirmed and dead cases in the United States is the largest in the world.

There are over 1 million cases of new coronavirus infection in the United States within 100 days. What happened during this period?

The New York Times said that during this time, residents of most states in the United States and more than half of the world’s population were isolated at home to slow the spread of the virus and try to avoid overburdening the hospital system.

Over the past 100 days, more than 53,000 people in the United States have died from infection with the new coronavirus, accounting for about a quarter of global deaths (210,000).

Epidemiologists estimate that the actual number of infections may be about 10 times the known number. Similarly, according to the analysis of death data by the New York Times, the official death data published by the United States is likely to be far less than the real data.

The report continued that the timeline of the US epidemic changed as public health authorities found evidence of the spread of the new coronavirus in the community earlier than expected.

For weeks, no one has celebrated a normal birthday party with friends, no one enjoys a wedding, and no one weeps at a large funeral.

Over the past 100 days, the global economy has suffered a rapid and sudden recession, so that economists have to go back to the Great Depression to find similarities.

The New York Times also stated that over 26 million people in the United States have lost their jobs. The US Department of Commerce is about to release the GDP data for the first quarter of this year on Wednesday (29th). It is expected that there will be even more shocking news.

According to reports, with the highest number of infections and deaths in the world, the national image of the United States has suffered worldwide, and Americans are forced to reexamine their self-image.

The report also said that the United States watched the president talk about the epidemic almost every day. He sometimes misled, vented his resentment, acted rudely, and sometimes acted dangerously, and was often mixed with bragging.

However, after 100 days, the United States is trying to slowly lift the blockade. In the absence of vaccines or treatments, the United States is trying to find a way to restore some form of public life, and the virus has not stopped. …

Trump announced on March 31 to extend the guidelines for maintaining social distance until April 30, and suggested that Americans stop large-scale gatherings, work from home, and suspend unnecessary travel. On April 16, Trump announced the guidelines for “restarting” the US economy in stages.
