From one end of the world to the other at this time, the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is humbling both the rich and the poor countries, which has also made it difficult for countries to rally round the other for help.
But aside China, where the virus started, Spain, Italy and the United State of America are the next worst hit at least for now. The figures of affected individuals are gradually rising in most countries of the world including African countries. Sadly though, the number of people who have lost their lives to the coronavirus pandemic in the United States has increased again and now stands at more than 5,000 and counting.
Just like other countries, the government of Mr. Donald Trump, the US president is doing everything within their powers to curtail and contain the dreaded virus. But as much as they try, there were 884 coronavirus-related deaths in the US in 24 hours—a new record—according to Johns Hopkins University, which has become the leading authority on tracking the global pandemic.
Around the world, cases of the coronavirus are closing in on a million with over 938,000 people having received a positive diagnosis. There have now been over 47,000 deaths related to the pandemic, but over 194,000 people have also recovered after they were hit by the virus according to the latest statistics from health authorities that are monitoring the pandemic.
