COVID-19 outbreak in the US is likely to become global pandemic, the CDC informs:
“This is the time to open up your pandemic plans and see that things are in order,” Dr. Anne Schuch at, a top official of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, urged hospitals as an outbreak of a deadly new coronavirus ravaged much of China.
A larger spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus across the U.S. could overwhelm emergency rooms and cause supply shortages of some crucial medical supplies.
While a majority of those cases are in China — with just 15 confirmed in the U.S. — the CDC has been working with the health-care sector to prepare for the virus to“take a foothold in the U.S,” Dr. Nancy Messonnier, director of the CDC’s National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases, told reporters.
The 15 US cases include eight in California, one in Massachusetts, two in Washington state, one in Arizona, two in Illinois and one in Wisconsin. Among these cases, there are two instances of person-to-person transmission, one in Illinois and one in California
