Glenn gives the latest coronavirus numbers, updating YOU on everything needed to know as Americans and officials monitor China's new COVID-19 virus:
- Total confirmed cases are now up to 83, 896 -Total deaths are up only 3 today, now at 2,817
- 60 countries have confirmed cases
- 18 percent of active cases are labeled as serious or critical (requiring hospitalization)
- 60 confirmed cases in the U.S., with no deaths
- Only 445 Americans have been tested, according to the CDC
- 10 thousand FAULTY tests were sent to hospitals last week -- by this morning hospitals should have the new ones to use.
- 40 labs across the U.S. now should be able to test patients.
- Possibly 14 percent of recovered patients in China have been REINFECTED, and Japan has confirmed it's a possibility.
Glenn reminds Americans that our country WILL survive this new virus, as long as capitalism and freedom remain. American AND Israeli doctors already think they're close to a vaccine, and human testing for it has begun. Still, everybody should prepare by having a supply of food, water, and medicine to survive indoors for at least two weeks.
Don't panic. Keep your immune system strong by staying stress free, getting plenty of sleep and good nutrition, washing hands frequently, and disinfecting surfaces.
