The stock market plunged as Americans nervously braced for the worst about the mysterious coronavirus.
On Wednesday night those worst fears may have come true.
And one announcement about the spread of the coronavirus has all breaking loose.
The Center for Disease Control released a statement on Wednesday that a California patient became the 60th confirmed Coronavirus case in America.
But what startled Americans – and caused another 400 point drop in projected opening for Thursday’s stock market – was the announcement that it was unknown how the individual contracted the virus.
A Center for Disease Control (CDC) statement indicated this could be the first case of “community spread” within the United States.
“At this time, the patient’s exposure is unknown. It’s possible this could be an instance of community spread of COVID-19, which would be the first time this has happened in the United States. Community spread means spread of an illness for which the source of infection is unknown. It’s also possible, however, that the patient may have been exposed to a returned traveler who was infected,” the CDC statement read.
Community spread means the disease will spread in areas of America like it has in Italy and China.
Despite this news, medical professionals still reassure Americans that the risk of them catching the disease is still very low.
And the federal government does have plans to deal with influenza outbreaks – which offer similar guidance to how to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
The Fake News Media is trying to whip up a climate of fear surrounding the virus to hurt the President ahead of 2020 election.
This news of possible community spread will only add ammunition to the President’s enemies in the media to claim this is Trump’s “Hurricane Katrina.”
