Throughout the month of February, the entire world has been watching and waiting as they've witnessed the spread of COVID-19, or as it's called coronavirus as it has been spreading throughout mostly China, but in other countries all over the world as well.
We've even had some cases in the United States as well though they are very contained and no threat of it spreading any further has emerged.
At the heart of the outbreak is the city of Wuhan, China, where authorities believe that the illness may have jumped from bats to humans at a wildlife market. That theory is now being combated though as it is believed that it could possibly have been leaked from a lab.
This week, President Trump told Americans that U.S. authorities have the coronavirus very much “under control” stateside, but new reports from the CDC seem to contradict that statement.
“It’s not so much a question of if this will happen anymore but rather more a question of exactly when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illness,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, the head of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said during a media briefing Tuesday.
Measures to contain the virus in the U.S. so far have involved restricting travel to and from China — the center of the outbreak — and isolating identified cases.
But Messonnier said evidence that the virus is spreading to countries outside the region, such as Iran and Italy, has raised the CDC’s “level of concern and expectation that we’ll see spread” in the U.S.
As of Tuesday, more than 300 cases had been reported in Italy. Iran had nearly 100 cases.
Just days ago, reports surfaced of an evacuation of infected Americans from a quarantined cruise ship abroad. The CDC warned the federal government not to bring the infected back to the United States right away, but were ignored.
