On Thursday, The US overtook Italy and China as the country with the highest number of confirmed Covid-19 cases. Americans are suffering and dying because the US Government failed to act quickly and decisively to prevent the virus' spread. The US has now seen about 1,195 deaths and the number is rising rapidly.
The number of confirmed cases has been increasing tremendously every day since the first day I started working at LiftPort. Michael and I are constantly checking the number of confirmed increases and predicting the future. This is because more than 30 percent of the U.S. stock market's fall has resulted and our monthly plans are being further delayed.
The coronavirus is changing how we live our daily lives. Whenever I visit the grocery store every week, I am often surprised by the number of people and empty shelves.
Toilet paper, hand sanitizer and other hygiene essentials began flying off store shelves weeks ago
The ultimate question everyone wants to know is when will the store shelves be restocked
The COVID-19 pandemic is gutting the global economy and forcing entire nations into quarantine. In many countries around the world, the 'Social Distance Setting Strategy' is a public health strategy aimed at curbing or delaying the spread of infections.
They say that by limiting people's behavior and maintaining the physical distance between people, fewer opportunities for contact, fewer opportunities to transmit COVID-19 to others.
There are also a series of countries and regions that seek "lockdown" by blocking countries or regions to forcibly restrict people, citizens and businesses' activities.
Never before had the Olympic Games been postponed or canceled for something other than war.
But on Tuesday, Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach agreed to postpone the Tokyo 2020 Olympics by about one year.
I came here to experience American culture. I was studying English in San Diego and working in LiftPort, experiencing American culture little by little. However, due to the influence of COVID-19, many cultural facilities in Washington state and Tacoma are not available. I can't freely do outdoor activities with people or even eat out. I explained the rules by studying American football and watching the 2020 Super Bowl LIV with my friends. From now on, we can't go to see the games together at the end of this year. I want to spend more time in the US with you. Let's follow the government's guidelines and defeat the virus altogether.
