Notes on the 2020 Coronavirus Pandemic
The world is fighting a virus pandemic that is called COVID19. The first outbreak was is Wuhan, China around December of 2019. Emily and I traveled by train through China in May of 2019. One of the train stops was Wuhan, but we did not depart the train. The virus has spread rapidly throughout the world. It is the worst pandemic since the 1918 Spanish Flu. The first American death was in February 2020. Today, May 28, 2020, America recorded it’s 100,000 death. As of today, 1,680,913 Americans have been infected.
