The United States has recorded almost 1,000 cases of coronavirus disease on Tuesday.
KAMI learned that the sudden increase of the cases came after there had been delays in testing.
As reported by the ABS-CBN News, public health experts criticized the authorities in the US for downplaying the epidemic that resulted in testing delays.
Some epidemiologists said that there were faulty test kits and the diagnostic strategy initially targeted few people led to the spread of the disease beyond the US.
In a report by the CNN Health (authored by Jason Hanna, Madeline Holcombe, and Steve Almasy), officials started calling off public gatherings and holding online classes for students due to the increasing number of cases.
"We would like the country to realize that as a nation, we can't be doing the kinds of things we were doing a few months ago. It doesn't matter if you're in a state that has no cases or one case," Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases said.
According to the ABC News (authored by Morgan Winsor and Julia Jacobo), the US has now recorded about 975 cases of coronavirus. Meanwhile, a total of 30 people have died due to the disease.
As previously reported by KAMI, the virus continues to spread globally. In the Philippines, there have been 33 cases recorded.
The coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was first reported in Wuhan, China. On March 7, the World Health Organization (WHO) the cases of coronavirus globally reached more than 100,000.
