As coronavirus has spread in the United States: Trail of Eye of the Epidemic ‘

For months, confounded by many as the United States, the richest and technologically capable countries of the world, the world had two confirmed cases of COVID-19 and resulting deaths lead. Fingers have been pointed out in many directions, from the listless political leadership of persistent cultural attitudes. But there is another factor that has made the US duck for viral disaster well: the country of 328 million inhabitants are scattered through his many states, districts and territories, each with its own approach to viral containment. We are not fighting an epidemic-are fighting more than 50 of them. in others, such as a hurricane, with no sense of direction or more than one observer effort, the country has the struggle against the coronavirus to a game of whack-a-mole every time to smooth the curve in a state, it seems, compared arches. To view this geographical phenomenon, pursues time the wandering eye of this storm infectious calculating, for each new day by the end of February, the central point the exact location of the epidemic in the United States, half of whom were of all new cases reported in the west and half were in the East, and likewise for the north and south (which demographers, the media center of the population call). This function is updated daily. Here’s how it stands: As expected, the inside line of Hurricane COVID starts at the top to the northwest. That’s where it was confirmed the first case of the United States reported on 20 January in Snohomish County, Washington., A few weeks after the virus emerged in Wuhan, China. After a period of relatively slow growth in February, l ‘ “eye” push its south in California, the week starts paired with 103 passengers on board infected before the Grand Princess in the port of Oakland on March 9. At the same time, the cases has grown rapidly in the Tri-State area of ​​New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, the disease probably led to the traveler beyond Europe, to open a second theater of combat. “The virus has had several attacks in the US, he began,” as two of my colleagues wrote these tips on opposite coasts. While the rate of new cases began to stabilize in the West who have experienced the areas around New York City crowded spikes that quickly caught the eye of the hurricane COVID across the country. The eye then hovering around the New York area until mid-April. It is remarkable to see the average length (vertical line) so close to this hotspot, as it means that, for many days, the tri-state region substantially as many new cases as the entire rest of the nation in the West and South had. Then, an increase in and around Chicago, in conjunction with a possible flattening of the New York curve, the line moved west to mid-May, when a sudden spike in Los Angeles the average width to the south began to pull. At that time, some states, such as Virginia, began to think a moderate recovery of public spaces such as beaches and parks of Memorial Day. In June, many southern regions, which had not yet seen the worst of the pandemic started prematurely resume following. Soon, Texas, Arizona and Florida were the new hot spot in the center of the south and west as Southern California also draw continue to suffer. Late June to mid-July was caught the eye in a tug of war centered in Arkansas in the increase of cases in Carolina. attract even the recent shock in cases in Iowa and Dakota and the center to the north. It ‘important to note that the location of our center does not demonstrate an increase in cases in this particular location. Instead, it is the middle of a theoretical point that divides the total number of new infections in both directions equally. Arkansas, for instance, was relatively stable when it is presented to the geographical center of the epidemic, about 20 cases per 100,000 inhabitants per day States, much lower than many nearby ratio on average. Now, get in decline in many parts of the Deep South, the eye of the way back to the north, in the direction of the central impulses area as cases in parts of the Midwest with COVID-19 Finally, where the eye is established, however, it is much less important that the spread is no longer necessary that hope more distant virus.
