Exclusive: Coronavirus (COVID-19) is not just a cool cartoons and jokes but real threat to world population and global economy. It’s not just a seasonal flue but, officially, it’s a global pandemic according World Health Organization (WHO). The global death toll is clocked at 5,397 deaths and 144,031 cases of infections as of March 13, 2020, 19:40 GMT according to WorldOMeters.info. It has spread in 137 countries and territories.
U.S. Government has just declared National Emergency which will ensure that there is enough funding to contain virus through tests, treatment and other measures. U.S. has seen more than 1,800 Coronavirus infection and 41 deaths.
Leaders worldwide are also scrambling to contain the virus without an effective vaccine to treat the infection. We must stay vigilant and limit our community social interaction as much possible as we can. Laugh at the jokes but don’t become a victim of virus ignoring the real threat.
