WHO Says That the US Could Be the New Epicenter of the Coronavirus!

With the numbers of new cases dropping in China, the World Health Organization (WHO) has said the United States could soon be the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak.

The speculation by WHO came as Britain went into lockdown and Olympic organizers postponed the Tokyo 2020 games until next year.


On the economic side, business activity collapsed from Australia and Japan to Western Europe at a record pace in March, with data for the United States pretty much just as dire.

“The coronavirus outbreak represents a major external shock to the macro outlook, akin to a large-scale natural disaster,” analysts at BlackRock Investment Institute said.

However the Dow Jones did rally on Tuesday in anticipation of the $trillion coronavirus stimulus package expected to soon be passed by the Sentate.

WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris said in Geneva there had been a “very large acceleration” in coronavirus infections in the United States which had the potential of becoming the new epicenter.

Over the past 24 hours, 85 percent of new cases were from Europe and the United States, she told reporters. Of those, 40 percent were from the United States.

Asked whether the United States could become the new epicenter, Harris said, “We are now seeing a very large acceleration in cases in the U.S. So it does have that potential. We cannot say that is the case yet but it does have that potential.”

    The notion that this is anything more than the Chinese attempt to get rid of their elderly , got caught by the world suddenly giving the opportunity to the globalist/left wing democrat Nazi communist baby killers, seizing the the moment using their treasonous media to spin the world into a frenzy so the likes of George Soro’s , the Clintons, the pelosi’s and the Schumer’s oh and don’t leave out nadler, schiff and Romney all to get richer by manipulating the stock market hedging their portfolio’s to rape every investor in the world out of half the worlds net worth, while simultaneously blaming it on Trump!
    Globalists, actors, media and all democrats should be expelled from this country and all their assets seized for their treason against America and all other Humans in the world!

    We are afraid to even go out of our house.I am 74 with a heart problem so it’s a death sentence to me if I get this virus.
    If people would stay home and stop spreading it maybe we can contain it soon but some people, especially the young people, are doing stupid things and acting like it’s a joke.I also think that it’s people coming from outside my area that has it to come to us because for awhile we had none of it.
    People don’t need to be traveling from one city to another or town to town even if you live far out a way from people, don’t come to town unless it necessary and always wear a mask and gloves.
    Just stay home please.
