NATURAL NEWS | US Covid-19 Cases Surpass Half a Million


US Coronavirus cases surpasses 500 000, with over 20 000 deaths. Almost a third (1/3) of the total number of deaths come from the most hard hit state, New York.

The federal (national) government has been accused of not doing enough to fight off the virus by not providing Personal Protective Equipment, with the President deflecting the burden onto the state government, pushing for stricter measures.

Although President Trump believes that the United States will have fewer deaths than the number that is projected by health officials (experts) with their graph-models. A clear antagonism between State and Federal government is not doing American citizens any favours. The governor of New York State, Governor Andrew could never stress this enough, "the worst thing that can happen is that we make a misstep and we let our emotions get ahead of our logic and fact," when question about how the federal government is playing politics.

Dr Fauci, who is the dirrctor of the National Institue for Allergy & Infectious Disease Control, has acknowledged that earlier action against the virus, particularly early February, could have resulted in the pandemic having less of an impact than it does correctly. In essence, America would have been more prepared in attaining face masks, ventilators and other PPE for health officials and for its citizens. This now causes a a situation whereby because of the lack of supply of necessary equipment, the distribution channels aren't effective enough to assist every city in each state, with accusations of President Trump not having taken the virus seriously enough before it was regarded as a pandemic.

Dr Fauci also stated that there was a lot of resistance to closing down the biggest economy in the UD, which seemed to be counter productive as not only more lives have been lost, but the American economy is suffering even more with over 6.6 million Americans filing for unemployment in less than month since restrictive measures have to put into place in most parts of the country.

However, some areas on the US, such as the Bay Area in San Francisco and Ohio have less infection to death rates because instead of waiting for President Trumps federal lockdown. Unlike states such as Florida, exercised state authority earlier on by enforcing restrictive measures and therefore slowed down the spread of the virus in comparison to areas where the economy is naturally a priority and failed to adjust within the recommended time.
