More than 1,000 people died of coronavirus in the United States on Wednesday alone, raising the death toll over 5,000. A week ago the total was less than 1,300. Trump and federal health officials predicted a “very painful” period in the country's fight against the public health emergency.

Meanwhile, several states joined the stay-at-home movement. In Los Angeles, the mayor has urged residents to wear masks. In New York, a former police commissioner was brought back to serve as the medical supplies czar.

The U.S. death toll was at 5,137 early Thursday, according to the Johns Hopkins University data dashboard. Worldwide, the virus has killed more than 48,000 and infected more than 950,000.

    In the beginning of this month he said there was no problem and for people to keep going out and going shopping. He clearly was not prepared for any of this.

      @LiS Wright can i talk to you


      Wxhxn (once I spell it correct, the post gets auto deleted.) sealed off again.

      A lady with red health signal in her phone escapes.

      Yes, 🇨🇳 now colour coded its citizens…
      Green = safe to work
      Yellow = quarantined
      Red = infected with 🇨🇳 virus

      🇨🇳 recently reported new cases of hanta virus. Hanta is a place in Korea.
      Why must it be known as hanta?
      Why Spanish flu?
      Why hong kong feet?
      Why not 🇨🇳 virus???

      Sars should also be 🇨🇳 virus 1.
      Now this is 🇨🇳 virus version 2.

      Yes, I am marked by 🇨🇳 cyber warriors who reported me. Then youtube auto delete my posts without checking.
      I speak only truth in the name of jesus. 🙏
      I want to save as many people as possible.

      @LiS Wright Cuomo himself. His quotes from earlier this month and even up to January we’re shown on TV. And I doubt they were lying because they were direct quotes.

    I’m in rural California, but, I really feel bad for New York and New Yorkers are so resilient. They behaved so great during 911 and they’ll behave so great during this. They set a really great example for the rest of our United States and WE MUST. LIKE DURING 911 TRULY UNITE AS ONE!!!!!
