It’s been 12 days since the World Health Organization (WHO) proclaimed the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic. In the U.S. as of March 23, there have been approximately 38,500 cases and over 400 deaths due to the virus. That’s more than double the 18,170 confirmed cases (241 deaths) being reported less than three days ago.
The situation is really starting to worsen as we’re seeing more states, counties, and cities choose to close nonessential businesses or issue some sort of “stay at home” or “shelter in place” orders. These include states like California, Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Illinois, Louisiana, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania.
