It was one month ago on February 26 that President Donald Trump proclaimed the number of coronavirus cases in the U.S. would soon drop from 15 to almost none. The U.S. has now surpassed China, Italy and every other country for number of coronavirus cases and has just now surpassed 100,000 infected in the country, becoming the global epicenter for the coronavirus.
Back in February, taking the opportunity to pat himself on the back, Trump told reporters that “when you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”
One month ago today…
The number of cases did not drop, in fact, they rose. Exponentially.
Perhaps ironically, the United States reached that new, horrific milestone, exactly one month after President Trump’s prognostication of “close to zero” cases “within a couple of days.”
By the end of the day on 26 March, the United States had overtaken China for the highest number of confirmed cases. Italy is also poised to surpass China in the coming days. Italy and Spain now have the two highest death tolls, with Italy accounting for more than one-third of the global total. For reference, China is a nation of more than 1.4 billion people. The U.S. has just under 330 million.
And today, Friday March 27th, the US just passed 100,000 cases infected with the coronavirus, with no end in sight…
