America First Update: Latest Coronavirus News

As the Chinese Wuhan Coronavirus continues to spread across the globe, and various countries deploy their countermeasures to combat this spread, here are the latest developments that you need to be aware of:

  • There are currently over 837,000 confirmed cases in the world, with over 41,000 deaths

      • In the United States, there are over 163,000 confirmed cases and over 3,000 dead

      • In the United Kingdom, there are over 25,000 cases and just under 1,800 deaths

      • In Italy, there are almost 106,000 cases and nearly 12,500 deaths

      • China’s latest claims are of over 81,000 cases and 3,300 deaths, although these numbers have been questioned due to China’s unlikely claims that there have been no new cases at all in the last several days.

  • In the United States, President Trump unveiled Abbott Laboratories brand new “point of care” testing machine, which is capable of producing results for a Coronavirus test at local care providers in just under 5 minutes
  • The Navy hospital ship USNS Comfort arrived in New York City on Monday morning to provide much-needed treatment to citizens who have serious medical conditions other than the Coronavirus, thus allowing hospitals on the mainland to continue treating the outbreak while those with serious other pre-existing conditions can still receive the care that they need

  • As additional tests further confirm the effectiveness of Hydroxychloroquine in treating the Coronavirus, multiple companies have stepped up to mass-produce the anti-malaria drug for distribution. Among these companies is Bayer, which has donated three million tablets to the United States in order to fight the virus.

  • The Phase One trials of a potential Coronavirus vaccine continue at a recording-breaking pace.
