American Deaths from COVID-19 Top 100

The virus is now in all 50 states.

The coronavirus continues to spread throughout the world, and particularly here in the United States. According to stats from Johns Hopkins University, deaths in the US have topped 100, and the virus is in all 50 states. Additionally, the number of cases worldwide has risen above 200,000, with over 6,000 of those in the United States alone.

The rise in the number of cases naturally follows the increase in testing, demonstrating what medical experts suspected: that there were more people who just thought they had the flu who in fact had COVID-19. Awareness of the disease is growing, but these stats show that things may get worse before they get better.

The number of people recovered from the coronavirus has stayed at 17, but that’s likely to rise too as more testing becomes available.

This news comes as Americans seem to be sheltering in place for the most part – working from home when possible, schooling their kids at home, limiting errands to essential trips. Churches are leveraging technology not just to host Sunday services on line, but also to meet the needs of their congregation.

Even with the government’s efforts to combat COVID-19 and their plans to give the economy a boost, the best ways for us to combat coronavirus is to limit our contact with the outside world.

The advice we’ve heard over and over continues to ring true. Wash your hands. Practice social distancing. Stay at home as much as you can. And pray for this disease to slow down.
