In the United States, more than 200 thousand positive cases of Coronavirus have been found, even the death toll has reached more than 5,000 lives. Interestingly, US president Donald Trump is still relaxed responding to that fact.
This virus is spreading rapidly throughout the world. In Indonesia alone, there have been more than 1,700 positive cases of Coronavirus, and more than 100 people have died as a result.
Although relatively high, but that number is nothing compared to the findings of cases in the United States that reached more than 200 thousand. Its spread is very fast in the land of Uncle Sam, for two months alone has reached 200 thousand more.
The first finding occurred on January 22, there was only one case confirmed at that time. It’s a US citizen, who just came back from China. Donald Trump then underestimated him.
“We have handled it. Only (infects) one person from China and we can control it. Everything will be fine, “Trump said at the time.
Day by day, more and more case findings, although not significant, only dozens of cases were found a month ago. However, there is still no seriousness that can be seen from Donald Trump’s statement.
The President seemed to give peace to his people, claiming that the virus could not last long in the summer. In fact, several tropical countries including Malaysia and Indonesia have found more than 1,000 cases.
Sure enough, what worries happened. After two months, the increase was very significant. In fact, as of Thursday, 2 April 2020 there have been more than 215 thousand positive cases of COVID-19 in the United States. Again, Donald Trump seemed relaxed, he even doubted the accuracy of the data.
“How do we know if their data is accurate?” he said.
I do not know whether the number of findings of this case will continue to grow or not. What is clear, seen from the attitude of the President who seemed to underestimate, it looks like this plague will continue to spread to various parts of the land of Uncle Sam.
In fact, that number makes the United States tops the list of most COVID-19 cases in the world, surpassing China as the home country of the Coronavirus.
