With the postponing of festivals, shows, and sporting events up and down the country, we can’t say that this news comes as a surprise.

The deadly coronavirus, or COVID-19, as medical experts are referring to it, has taken our planet hostage, and is showing no signs of letting go anytime soon.

According to the World Health Organization, COVID-19 is a new strain of coronaviruses that had not been previously been identified in humans.

And common symptoms include fever, coughing, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties.

And in patients who are elderly and have existing health issues, the virus can lead to pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.

There are now 341,816 to be precise. And, devastatingly, a staggering 14, 757 people have been reported to have died from the illness.

And many have been asking the same thing – Where did this virus actually come from?

On December 31st, 2019, China alerted the World Health Organization of several flu-like cases in Wuhan.

Many different theories have been proposed, but it is now widely believed to have originated from the sale of meat from wild animals, especially bats, where the virus has been discovered in the past.

The virus was alarmingly quick to spread, with cases being reported as far away as Thailand just one week later.

Which was done in an attempt to combat the virus and enable countries to put in strict measures to prevent any further spread.

Because, fast forward 3 months, and nearly every major country in the world has been infected by the virus, with some of the worst affected being Japan, South Korea, Russia, Italy, Iran, and Spain.

And many have banned large and crowded events, and any travel to and from infected countries.

Leaving their streets completely deserted.

Our first case of COVID-19 was confirmed in Washington in late January after a citizen returned from a trip to China.

Since the first COVID-19 patient in Washington, there have been 9,464more confirmed cases across the country and 155 deaths.

And, on Friday, President Trump declared a national emergency to combat the coronavirus pandemic, freeing up $50 billion in federal funding and promising a screening website and drive-by tests.

FYI… A pandemic is a disease that is spreading in multiple countries around the world at the same time.

Which prohibits any travel between the United States and any European country, including the United Kingdom and Ireland.

And many people have been descending into mass hysteria over the risks the virus brings with it.

There has been some utterly horrifying sights, including one on the streets of Italy today.

And it shows military trucks filled with bodies driving through the streets overnight.

According to Metro, an army spokesperson confirmed that fifteen trucks and fifty soldiers had been deployed to move bodies to neighboring areas.

They were transported from the crematorium to the highway and out of Bergamo.

This really shows how serious this pandemic is.  

‘The Olympics should not be held in a situation people in the world can’t enjoy,” Kaori Yamaguchi, Japanese Olympic Committee board member, said. This is sad news, but the safest decision to make.
