As the coronavirus spreads terror across the globe, governments in various countries are implementing strict protocols to battle the disease. Here is what US President Donald Trump says about fighting the corona.
Corona's Emergence And History
The COVID-19 virus of the Coronavirus as it is popularly called emerged in China. Wuhan, a district in China, is the epicentre of the outbreak of the virus. It does not have a higher death rate than other infections. However, like other viruses, it does not have a cure, and if detection is not fast enough, it can lead to death.
Older generations and people who have chronic physical ailments are more susceptible to the virus. It spreads through contact and unhygienic conditions that come up in large crowds and gatherings.
Trump Bans Travel For 30 Days
With almost 100+ cases in America alone, Trump is taking measures to handle the spread of the virus. His Oval office address says that travel to the United States from 26 European countries is going to be suspended for 30 days. However, the United Kingdom is not on the list of the 26 nations.
With the dollar also taking a hit, it is crucial to take careful steps to address the situation. Since the predictions about the effect of the corona on the travel, tourism, entertainment and other consumerist industries are also mostly unpromising. However, Trump's action seems a bit on the less severe side of the situation.
According to Trump, the corona has nothing on us.
The death toll of the corona is at 3000 right now and counting. Many countries are reporting a sudden spike in the number of cases of the virus. Countries like Italy and many cities in China are on lockdown. Also, many countries like India, Indonesia and Japan are facing spike and rises in the number of corona cases.
With the rise in the number of cases, the number of deaths due to the corona is also rising. The death toll in many countries sees an increase with many schools, colleges and theatres shutting down.
The imminent threat of corona is no joke since it has been declared as a pandemic. However, it is also necessary to stay calm and cautious instead of creating panic.
