Corona Virus, Some Countries have managed to Flatten the Curve



A new respiratory virus, thought to have originated in a food market in Wuhan, China, has put health authorities on high alert. The spread of the novel coronavirus—named 2019-nCoV—has impacted travel, business and spread concern around the world.


The coronavirus outbreak is now a pandemic, the World Health Organization declared on March 11, as global confirmed cases of Covid-19 now surpass 650,000 worldwide, with deaths topping 30,000. The outbreak has spread from the Chinese city of Wuhan in late January to more than 140 countries and territories—affecting every continent except Antarctica—in the course of a month. Cases in Europe now exceed the number in China. Efforts to prevent the pneumonia-like illness from spreading further have led to shuttered cities, widespread flight cancellations and shaken financial markets.

Tracking the Spread of the Coronavirus Outbreak in the U.S.


Since the first U.S. case of the new coronavirus was reported on Jan. 20 in Washington state, more than 110,000 people have been diagnosed, with clusters around New York City, Seattle and in California. At least 1,972 people have died. American health officials have identified multiple people with Covid-19, as the infection is called, without known ties to other outbreaks or patients—a sign the virus is transmitting person-to-person. A lack of testing has hamstrung health workers’ efforts to track the infection.



As cases in the U.S. continue to increase, Governor Andrew Cuomo ordered New Yorkers on March 20 to stay at home for the foreseeable future, the U.S. implemented travel restrictions on flights from Europe and markets have plummeted.


The number of tests performed by each state has varied greatly. As one of the first sources of the outbreak in the U.S., Washington state began widespread testing relatively early. Recently, New York state significantly increased testing, with more than 15,000 additional tests reported on March 23. However, many states have yet to test more than 1,000 people.


Mapping New York City Hospital Beds as Coronavirus Cases Surge

New York City is the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, putting historic pressure on a world-renowned healthcare system as the number of confirmed cases in the area grows exponentially.


Bloomberg News is tracking how many beds are in each hospital in the city, and is monitoring the search for new ones as the number of cases soars daily.
Much information is unavailable. Citywide hospitalization figures have been updated only sporadically, and hospitals haven’t been disclosing their occupancy or their data on intensive care units and life-saving ventilators.
