End of the American Dream
Do more than 100,000 people in the state of Ohio already have the coronavirus? As you will see below, that is what the top health official in the state believes. It has become exceedingly clear that COVID-19 is spreading like wildfire all across the country, but because of the very limited testing that is taking place the official count of confirmed U.S. cases is still very low. Even though South Korea has managed to test more than 140,000 of their citizens, the U.S. has still only been able to test about 10,000 people, and that is making our numbers appear far better than they should. At this moment, there are still less than 2,000 confirmed cases in the United States, but that number will undoubtedly go much higher once testing starts ramping up.
For many of us, it is deeply frustrating not to have an accurate picture of what is really going on out there.
We don’t really know how widespread this pandemic has become in this nation, but some brave health officials are giving us their best guesses.
