Some reasons why COVID-19 is spreading like wildfire in America

Posted by

Do you know why Coronavirus cases have grown 4.15 times (from 35,060 on March 23 to 145,443 today) in the USA in just one week? Or why the US is the country with the highest number of absolute COVID-19 cases?

There may be many reasons, but if you look at the results of a Survey of 2,436 Americans conducted by University of Southern California (my son’s alma mater), you will find some very obvious ones.

The Statista graph shows what Americans have done, not what they haven’t done. If we subtract the numbers from 100%, this is what we get:

  • 75% of Americans have visited a restaurant
  • 39% have NOT practised social distancing
  • 15% have NOT washed hands or used hand sanitizer more frequently

What’s the point in blaming President Trump, the federal government, your state government or any other authorities if you yourself are not following easily available guidelines on how to save yourself from getting infected by COVID-19?

Wake up and smell the coffee, dear Americans – at the rate you are getting infected, USA will have more than 1 million people infected in the next 10 days.
