Coronavirus Pendemic turns 1 Year Old

It was one year ago today that health officials announced the first U.S. case of COVID-19 – and things have gotten progressively worse since then.
After the Seattle resident – who’d just returned from a trip to Wuhan, China – tested positive, health officials at the time announced the risk of transmission was low. Since then, we’ve learned otherwise.

As of Thursday, the U.S. has recorded 24.4 million cases of COVID-19 and 407,111 deaths.

Did you think in your wildest dreams the pandemic would still be going on a year later?
