America Sees Its First Coronavirus Death in Pacific Northwest

While this is an unfortunate milestone, there is no indication that a panic should ensue.

A debate has been raging in American politics this week over whether or not the Trump administration has done event to prevent the spread of a deadly strain of coronavirus here in the United States.

The Democrats have predictably taken to trashing President Trump wholesale over the issue, attempting to blame him for some future, hypothetical pandemic for which there appears to be no evidence for as of yet.

The CDC complicated the issue by insinuating that a “spread” of the COVID-19 strain of the virus was inevitable stateside.

News out of the Pacific Northwest will almost certainly elevate the conversation again this week.

A person in Washington state infected with coronavirus has died, according to the Seattle and King County Department of Health. The fatality marks the first death associated with the virus in the United States. The health department had no further details at the time of the announcement, but plans to announce more Saturday afternoon.

The death comes after U.S. health officials have warned that coronavirus now appears to be spreading within the country from person to person independent of any foreign travel. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention acknowledged three such cases, known as community spread, in the U.S. late Friday night.

“When you have a community spread, someone appears, had to have been infected by someone, but you don’t know who that person was,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases at the National Institutes of Health, told NBC Saturday morning. “It becomes more difficult to track down what the original source was.”

And while this is certainly an unfortunate milestone for COVID-19 stateside, the President and his administration has consistently maintained that the virus is “under control”.

Vice President Mike Pence has been appointed to oversee our national effort against the spread of the deadly contagion.
