A report by the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center has made it clear that the number of confirmed cases in the United States grew at a faster rate than any other country in the world yesterday.
With this statistics, it is clear that the United States falls in last place with regard to containing COVID-19 spread according to the number of confirmed cases.
According to the table, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases rose from 7,783 on Wednesday to 13,677 yesterday. The growth of 5,894 new confirmed cases in just one day equates to a 76% increase in cases in just a 24-hour period.
Meanwhile the clash between US President Donald Trump and US media is also growing up. In an extraordinary exchange on Friday, President Donald Trump verbally attacked a News reporter for raising questions about the worried Americans in the light of COVID19.
What annoyed Trump was the question from NBC News reporter Peter Alexander that what US President’s message would be to Americans who are frightened by the coronavirus pandemic.
Peter Alexander began with a statement that whether Trump was giving Americans "false hope" by touting unproven coronavirus drugs. The untoward incident of question-answer duel happened at the White House's daily coronavirus task force briefing.
Trump is also drawing ire from China for calling the COVID19 as ‘China virus’. Democrats blame Trump that he took the pandemic in a lighter way that caused much havoc to the United States as most of the cities in the US is now under lockdown.
A few weeks after the outbreak began in China’s Hubei province in December, U.S. health officials warned Trump of the seriousness of the threat. But in his first public comments about the virus, on Jan. 22, Trump told the public he wasn’t worried. “Not at all,” he said. “We have it totally under control.”
