The coronavirus adds nine deaths in the United States. The majority of cases and deaths are recorded in Seattle, Washington; but nevertheless, Health authorities are taking steps nationwide.
Although Donald Trump President cut the health budget, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is taking action to prevent the disease from causing alarm as it has in other countries.
As explained by the CDC authorities, the problem in America, is that the source of contamination was not detected in time and that, the virus is spreading from one place to another without being detected in time.
This week, the CDC asked the population to take extreme measures, wash hands and avoid public place if not necessary. But also, informed the local media that the country only has just over a million kits to carry out the tests.
All nine deaths were recorded in two Seattle counties, one of the deaths was a man who had not traveled outside the country and who apparently had not been exposed to an infected person.
