New York announces closure: 500,000 new cases in the U.S. if not controlled

U.S. President Donald Trump has declared New York a “major disaster area” for the outbreak and will provide additional aid, MSNBC news agreed. New York is the worst affected of the 50 U.S. states. As of 20 pm local time, New York State has confirmed 8310 cases of new coronary pneumonia, of which 5,151 cases in New York City.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Friday local time that he will sign an executive order that would require all workers except basic services to stay at home to prevent the spread of the new corona virus in the state. The order will be signed on Friday and will take effect Sunday night.

As a “final step” to closing the valve, Mr. Cuomo said, all non-essential businesses will have to close or have their employees work from home, with the exception of businesses such as pharmacies or stores.

Andrew Cuomo is using the Matlida’s Law act to order people over 70 or have problems with the immune system to stay at home, keep a distance of 6 feet from others, and pre-check a visitor’s temperature before taking it.

It comes after San Francisco Mayor London Breed announced that residents would be banned from the until midnight on the 16th to April 7th, in an effort to stem the spread of the new corona.

As for the current situation in the United States, President Trump said the outbreak ended in July, August or later. Researchers at Columbia University used mathematical models to predict the development of new coronas in the United States. Research shows that the current outbreak in the United States is only in its infancy, and that the peak will not arrive until May at the earliest. If left unchecked, the new coronavirus will spread across the United States, with up to 500,000 new cases on a peak day.

The study also found that even if the infection rate was cut in half, the number of people infected in the United States would reach 650,000 in the next two months. Because there are many carriers of the virus with no symptoms or mild symptoms, the number of undetected cases in the United States may be 11 times the current number of confirmed cases, which also reflects the current U.S. testing capacity is still lagging behind.
