The United States risks becoming the new epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic

The situation with the spread of coronavirus in the United States is deteriorating and becoming threatening. According to the statement of the World Health Organization, in the USA there is a rapid increase in the number of patients with coronavirus infection, which may lead to the United States becoming a new epicenter of the epidemic.

About this, referring to the words of the WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris, reports Reuters.

According to her, over the past day, 85 percent of new cases of the disease were noted in Europe and the United States. At the same time, 40 percent of them happened in the United States.

Harris noted that this trend suggests that in the near future the United States may become the new epicenter of the coronavirus epidemic.

If the observations and forecasts of the international organization turn out to be true, then North America will experience big shocks with an unpredictable ending, not excluding the further spread of the epidemic to South American countries.

Apparently, it will not do without political shocks in the United States. Already today, given the deterioration economic the situation in the country, Trump's chances of winning the presidential election no longer look so clear-cut.

    And the reason for this is probably in an extremely unevenly distributed population: the highest density in the east and along the coasts is empty in the central regions. In fact, the whole east is a metropolis. To ensure the non-proliferation of infection in such conditions (and even with the enormous mobility of the population) is extremely difficult.
    Let's see how they get out.

    I called my classmate yesterday; his son lives in the USA. Indeed, in the USA, quarantine has been introduced everywhere. But for the US, the problem is that their medicine is not ready for an epidemic. The lung ventilation apparatus is few and it is amazing. And what is interesting, ordinary Americans themselves say that the virus was intended for CHINA, but they did not think about the Boomerang effect.
