Worldwide: United States Number One With All The COVID-19 Cases: 6,608,623 cases of corona virus-infected people so far in the United States. The United States so far as the highest number of people who were infected by the virus.
A New Conclusion
There have been many assumptions on how the SARS-CoV-2 virus begins in the United States. According to scientists, this is the second conclusion that has come to light.
Scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggested that transmission may have begun in late January or early February on the West Coast.
The virus may have spread undetected for more than a month. Also, scientists believe that the transmission may have begun with a single unidentified case from China.
The other evidence so far has made the scientist drive different conclusion, and the C.D.C..D.C. team has concluded that the community transmission in the U.S. began in late January or early February.
Mistaking It For Flu
The first cases of the infection got mistaken as the flu. The authorities missed the source which had lead to the outbreak of the pandemic in the United States.
On 25 February the first case for COVID-19 was found in a patient in Washington. After two days the virus had already spread and had been reported by the authorities in California. Women had tested festive that time from California. She didn’t travel outside the U.S..S. neither had met anyone who had come back to the U.S.S.
Kristian Andersen, an expert in viral genomes from Scripps Research, told STAT that the first missed cases of the virus had been wrong leading to the spread.
He pointed out:
“It’s a sad fact that the United States missed the boat on getting adequate testing set up early enough to be able to stop the virus in its tracks — it’s likely one of several reasons we have by far the most cases of any country in the world.”
As of Friday, the U.S. has recorded more than 102,000 deaths — 28% of the global total.
