A few years ago, it looked like this was the year the country would see an era of black heroes.Black history month would mark the end of slavery and the end, for the time being, of Jim Crow.There would be a few hundred black-owned businesses, black-led museums, black political organizations and, of course, black athletes and politicians.But in recent months, it has felt like something else has hap...
The number of confirmed cases of the highly contagious, highly contagious coronavirus has reached 9,000, a staggering number for a new outbreak.
In the last 24 hours, the country has seen 1,800 new cases, bringing the total number of people infected with the virus to 4,000.
As of late Wednesday, nearly 11,000 people were confirmed infected, making it the most infected country in the world.
But there is one more complication: The latest national data from the CDC shows the country is still not fully vaccinated against the virus.
According to the latest update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 80 percent of the country’s children and adults have not received a full dose of the vaccine.
The number continues to rise, with some states reporting the highest number of cases of Polio in the country.
A full dose is required to prevent the disease, which can cause fever, headaches, muscle pain and pneumonia.
In addition, the CDC is reporting that the number of new cases in the U.S. and Canada is increasing.
But the number is still far too low to warrant an immediate government shutdown.
“This is a major public health threat and we need to act quickly to address it,” President Donald Trump tweeted Wednesday night.
While the country will continue to monitor the situation closely, the president said that he was confident that he would be able to pass a short-term funding bill to fund the government.
“The President believes that with bipartisan support and an appropriate amount of time, we can pass a bipartisan funding bill that provides emergency funding for our country,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters.
