One of the scariest points in our country seems to be hitting us front and back. New York has been the epicenter since this virus took to our land.
Now it is totaling even more deaths after just a scarce 24-hour period. 100 in just 24-hours!
According to The Daily Mail:
New York has recorded 100 coronavirus deaths in just 24 hours, bringing the state total to 385, as the number of fatal cases across the United States increased to 1,205.
New figures released on Thursday show that there are now 83,553 confirmed cases across the United States.
The US has now overtaken both Italy and China with the number of confirmed cases.
New York, which is the epicenter of the US outbreak with 50 percent of the country's total confirmed cases, now as 385 deaths and more than 37,877 infections.
There are 281 deaths in New York City and more than 21,000 infections.
Louisiana is now emerging as the possible next epicenter of the US outbreak after infections rose by 30 percent in 24 hours. That state recorded 2,305 infections and 83 deaths by Thursday. Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans has been blamed for the outbreak there.
New Jersey has 6,876 confirmed cases and 81 deaths, while California has 3,899 cases and 81 deaths. Washington state, which was initially the epicenter following an outbreak at a Seattle nursing home, now has 3,207 confirmed cases and 150 deaths.
It comes as new research showed the outbreak could lead to more than 80,000 deaths in the US within the next four months and overwhelm hospital capacity nationally as soon as early April even if social distancing measures are respected.
The country needs to take this a whole lot more serious so we can take this Covid-19 by the horns. It needs to be destroyed so we can end the deaths, panic, and sickness. I pray things don't get worse but you never know how things are going currently.
