According tomedia reports, the death toll from the new corona virus in the United States has exceeded the number of deaths caused by the 9/11 terrorist attacks. This disturbing statistic comes from numerous statistics tracked by health officials throughout the country. At least 3,017 people have died of new coronary pneumonia in the United States since the outbreak began, with more than 160,000 confirmed cases.
So far, New York is the largest U.S. city with nearly 67,000 positive cases and more than 1,200 deaths. Monday was the deadliest day for new coronavirus patients in the United States, with more than 500 deaths occurring in 24 hours.
With the exception of Hawaii and Wyoming, deaths are now reported in almost every state in the United States. Medical professionals across the country fear that their already overburdened health care system will soon be overwhelmed by patients, CNN reported.
However, while the number of infections and deaths is increasing, there are some positive signs that in some states, orders for social distance and home shelter are having the desired effect.
Washington state public health officials say the spread of the virus in the community has slowed significantly. This is undoubtedly good news, and it will go a long way towards easing the trend of new coronaworlds, while also ensuring that local hospitals can handle the influx of patients.
9/11 left a lasting scar on the country, a terrorist attack that prompted major u.S. changes to strengthen the country’s security. These changes still exist today, and it’s not hard to imagine that the new coronavirus pandemic will eventually bring lasting change to the country. People don’t have to keep their distance from society forever, but this outbreak is a wake-up call that it conveys a disturbing message of how caught us humans have been caught off guard in an invisible battle with micro-enemies.
