People need to take this virus extremely seriously and protect themselves.
As the number of cases rises worldwide, the spike in the number of cases coming from the United States is highly worrisome. At the time of writing, the number of confirmed cases in America is more than the sum total of all the cases in the next 3 worst-hit countries (Spain, Italy, and France). Currently, the number of global cases stands at 1,783,941 according to Johns Hopkins University tracker.
The total number of confirmed cases in America stands at 530,006 which is more almost three times more than Spain (163,027), and way more than Italy (152,271) and France (130,730). The total number of confirmed deaths due to the virus, worldwide, is 109,312, of which the US makes up almost one-fifth with 20,608 deaths registered already.
The total number of tests done so far in the country stands at 2,688,766 but the graph is showing no signs of letting up any time soon. Meanwhile, there have been some slowdown in the number of cases being reported from countries like Spain and France but not from the U.S. The fact of the matter is that one way or another, people are being affected every day and it is upon them to essentially protect themselves first. It is urgent that people follow social distancing and extreme precaution because that is the only way to defeat the virus.
