SARS-CoV is 2 long unnoticed in the United States?
In no other country in the world, the new Coronavirus SARS-CoV, is spreading-2 is currently as strong as in the United States. Again were reported from the 01.04.2020 on the 02.04.2020 over 25,000 new infections. In addition, around 1,000 people died in just one day. Currently 216.722 laboratory are known to be confirmed COVID-19 cases and 5.137 deaths. The number of unreported cases is likely to lie about it. How could it come to this?
The chief virologist of the Charité hospital in Berlin, Professor Christian Drosten explained in his NDR Podcast on the Coronavirus, why it has hit the USA so hard. Latest research suggests that the Virus has already spread very early on, unnoticed in the United States and to long to play down. The health and economic consequences are dramatic.
Small mutations provide conclusions on the introduction of
Professor Drosten reported in the Podcast, on the basis of small virus mutations to determine the origin of the Coronavirus with a high degree of probability was introduced. In addition, the genome of the virus, provides a clue as to what was the point of this. So, for example, two different variants of SARS-CoV-2 were discovered, which focused both in Wuhan grass.
While a rarer variant was discovered at a very early time, spread in the further course, as the Situation in the Chinese hospitals, more stringent, especially a later variant of SARS-CoV-2. Both of the virus variants were exported to other countries in the world. “Europe has gotten of the a variant and more, the US has more of the other variant – the USA have even gotten both versions quite a lot,“ says the virus expert.
Spread the Coronavirus unnoticed in the United States?
“The fact that the USA have to get a bit of both – also of the early Virus – we also see that the Virus was apparently introduced very early in the USA,” says Drosten. You could not tell, whether is a variant more dangerous than the other, but you could reconstruct on the basis of the variations of temporal and spatial relationships well. “If we know, for example, the early Virus in China is today relatively much in the United States, then we can derive relatively directly, that the United States had probably already at a relatively early age, many of the entries from China, you have not noticed,” explains the virologist.
Has traded with the USA is inconsistent and irresponsible?
US President, Trump has been played, the Coronavirus is long and seemingly not taken seriously. “And this is the major Problem in the United States that do not consistently tested as long as it was not noticed,” says Drosten more. Now, a Problem that is hard to control yet to be established.
Coronavirus sets US economy is lame
The severe consequences of the rapid spread of show already now. Many companies are struggling to Survive. How drastically this effects, shows a view of the restaurant chain, “Waffle House”, which in the US is particularly resistant to the crisis. In the southern States of the USA, the Waffle House is a kind of Institution and especially for its Sandwiches and waffles known. Early crises in the supernatant of the chain so well that the US civil authority, FEMA used as an indicator for the economy, or the Severity of a crisis.
Due to the Corona-crisis have now been closed more than 400 of the 1.992 locations of the company. In addition, the sales declined by more than 70 percent. The “Waffle House Index” jumped, consequently, to red – a clear alarm signal for the entire American economy.
New York has been particularly hard hit
Especially difficult it has caught the world metropolis of New York City. Here alone is already over 47,000 laboratory-confirmed infections and 1.374 deaths were reported (source: Johns Hopkins University at the 02.04.2020). According to media reports, the medical capacities of the city are so overloaded that the health staff Triage already-must make decisions and, for example, people with heart attack, no longer submits to hospitals, if you can’t be revived.
