Protestors care not as Coronavirus deaths in America cross 110,000 and the number of cases crosses 2 million.
The White House is now on a path for the continual of its existing alleviation efforts to combat the Coronavirus, for another 30 days. This course of action has been taken, so that even if things start getting from bad to worse over the next few weeks, the efforts should pay off.
Dr Deborah Birx, one of the experts on the US taskforce said:
“There’s no magic bullet. There’s no magic vaccine or therapy. Just behaviours.”
On Saturday, the number of deaths due to Coronavirus in America, went past the 110,000 mark. But this did not stop the people from America coming out in throngs, to protest against the killing of the 46 year old black man George Floyd, by policemen in America.
America is now spiraling out of control, protesting against the brutal police killing of George Floyd.
What leaders are saying about the killing of George Floyd:
- “We need the harm to stop in our communities. We need the damage to be repaired. We need to be able to have the opportunity to have a life of dignity, and the possibility to thrive.” – Opal Tometi, Co-founder, Black Lives Matter movement
- “The haunting video of Mr. Floyd’s last breaths is a sobering reflection of this national crisis. …This is a time when we must embrace our differences and become more inclusive. No group should ever be targeted for racism, harassment or other form of discrimination.” – Roger Ferguson, CEO, TIAA
- “Let’s not excuse violence, or rationalize it, or participate in it. If we want our criminal justice system, and American society at large, to operate on a higher ethical code, then we have to model that code ourselves.” – Barack Obama, former US President
- “The voices calling for an end to the killings of unarmed African Americans need to be heard. The voices calling for an end to police violence need to be heard.” – Michelle Bachelet, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
It was also reported that on Saturday, William T. Morris, NYC, Chief of Transportation, died because of Novel Coronavirus.

Amidst all the chaos, turmoil and deaths in America, US President Donald Trump has unveiled guidelines for opening up America again. But the big question is – Is America ready to open?
