The world is forever changed with the advent of this pandemic. The casualties may include traditional forms of greetings such as handshakes and hugging as more people embrace the new standard of “social distancing.”
Possibly, large public events will become rare occurrences. Fewer people will shop at retail locations or attend movie theaters, as the rush toward online shopping and entertainment will be accelerated. Popular modes of travel such as cruise ships may find fewer customers in the future as the many coronavirus worries may disturb American life for many years to come.
The United States has now become the world leader in a rather unfortunate category with the largest number of coronavirus victims. As of Friday March 27, there were 92, 282 confirmed cases and 1,380 deaths associated with the coronavirus in the United States. The area with the fifth highest total of deaths in the country is Orleans Parish, which leads the nation in fatalities per capita.
With the coronavirus spreading across the nation, all Americans are feeling vulnerable and nervous about the future. Incredible steps have been taken to shut down interaction among people and slow the spread of the killer disease. Hopefully, these measures will be successful, and life will soon return to normal in the country.
In the meantime, the crisis will get worse before it eventually gets better. One place that is being particularly hard hit is Louisiana. Our state is facing a crisis like nothing it has ever experienced. We are used to dealing with hurricanes and natural disasters, but this crisis is multi-faceted and will be long-lasting.
Once again, hell broke loose at the White House. Meanwhile, California, New York and Illinois are on lockdown. More are likely soon go follow.
Now that we’re in crisis mode with the Covid-19, the issue of the moment involves Trump vs. a member of the media. Meanwhile, those most at risk are Americans who are just looking for answers.
Ever since the coronavirus became a household word and the American people started to worry about its tremendous impact, President Trump and his task force have held daily media briefings. At these events, the President will usually make an announcement and then introduce members of his team who have important information to share with the American people. It is quite helpful to hear from these tireless public servants who are working day and night to save the lives of countless Americans.
