US Government Braces Up to Battle COVID-19, Expected to Last Over 18 Months

The US government is preparing to battle against the pandemic coronavirus expecting it to last 18 over months. The first COVID-19 case was registered two months ago in the US and the tally of as now has crossed 8700. The pandemic might stay with multiple waves as per a report obtained by CNN. 

In an announcement earlier this week, the US government has said that they will try to make up for the shortage of medical supplies.  The hospitals have already made the government aware of the continuous shortage of supplies. Nearly 9,000 Americans have tested positive for the virus. At least 149 have died.

The battle is to get equipment and beds to doctors and nurses and to stem the economic fallout by taking measures to provide financial relief. The concern, however, is more tests become available, more people will find out they have Covid-19, the disease caused by the new virus.

 US President Donald Trump has said that the country is almost in a state of war against coronavirus. "I view it as, in a sense, of wartime president," President Donald Trump said in a news conference Wednesday.


Meanwhile, to slow down the rate at which the COVID-19 is spreading across the country, the government has ordered schools and colleges to remain closed until further notice. Also, the general public has been asked to not come together in social gatherings.

City leaders like San Francisco's Mayor London Breed have asked their residents to ''shelter in place''. About 10 million residents are under such an order. 

"We are taking this health crisis seriously and trying to protect our community while still ensuring that the essential parts of our county can function and attempting to lessen the substantial burden placed on workers and businesses," Dr. Bela Matyas, Solano County Public Health Officer said in a statement.

The COVID-19 pandemic has put the entire world to a standstill with doctors trying to discover the cure to the virus.
