AMERICA FACES A NEW NORMAL AS CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAKS SHOW NO SIGN OF SLOWING DOWN

Date:

Travel restrictions into the US are going into effect today. Leaders across the country are banning public gatherings, dozens of school districts and universities hit the pause button on classes, sports leagues suspended their seasons and major entertainment venues — including Broadway and Disney World — announced a halt in activities.

Despite the unprecedented measures, one top US health official said the number of outbreaks is “definitely going to get worse before it gets better.”

There’s no way around it, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health told CNN Thursday night. “We will have a lot more cases.”

What life is like inside the coronavirus containment zone in New Rochelle, New York?

At least 1,665 cases have been reported across 47 states. At least 41 people have died: 31 in Washington state, which has been the epicenter of the outbreak, with at least 457 cases; four in California; two in Florida; one in Georgia; one in Kansas; one in New Jersey and one in South Dakota.

The number of cases will likely continue jumping as more tests become available and some facilities begin conducting drive-through testing.

In New York, which reported 328 positive cases, the Broadway League said it is suspending all shows through April 12 “in support of the health and well-being of the theatre public, as well as those who work in the theatre industry.”

It was one of many cancellations that left the public stunned.
