As Coronavirus Cases Climb CDC Updates Guidelines Changes US Landscape



The coronavirus infection rate climbs to 174,961 worldwide as of March 16, 2020. Of those, 3,813 are in America. The CDC updated its guidelines recommending no gatherings of 50 or more in the U.S. for the next eight weeks further changing the country’s emotional landscape.

Gatherings, including weddings, festivals, parades, conferences, and more were noted in the announcement of “one of the federal government’s most sweeping efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus,” according to The New York Times.  The CDC recommendations do “not apply to the day to day operation of organizations such as schools, institutes of higher learning or businesses.” The federal agency added the intent is not to replace the advice of local health officials.

By March 1, governors of 40 states declared public-health emergencies as a result of the coronavirus. However, President Trump waited until March 13 to declare a national state of emergency.

President Donald Trump’s Response to the Coronavirus Crisis

During a “Meet the Press” broadcast, a graphic was posted revealing recent polling results. Americans were asked how much confidence they felt in the government surrounding their handling of the coronavirus pandemic. At the state level, responders gave a 75 percent rating, the federal level (CDC) garnered 62 percent, pollsters report that their local governments were rated 72 percent, and President Donald Trump’s handling of the crisis resulted in a dismal 48 percent confidence rating.

coronavirusIn this time of uncertainty, it is vital that the U.S. President and his administration present a united front with the CDC, WHO, researchers, and other coronavirus experts in the field. Trump, on the other hand, cannot quit trying to sell “we’re doing great.”

Moreover are his half-truths. For example, on Friday, March 13, after he was pressured by a reporter about his interactions with two individuals who are reportedly infected. He insisted he did not know one of the men or if he was infected, and that the Brazilian president’s test revealed he was clear – the results of the latter’s coronavirus test are unclear as both positive and negative have been reported.

The reporter insisted Trump give an answer about being tested for coronavirus. He tried to deflect, but finally conceded he would be “most likely” be tested. Later that day, he tweeted that he had been tested and would have the results in a day or two. Amazingly, his results were quickly announced. On Saturday, the White House doctor reported that the president was not infected.

News of the coronavirus is ever-evolving and rapidly changes. Guardian Liberty Voice will continue to provide updates.
