CNN News:美国疫情震中纽约州的感染增速放缓

Source: 恒星英语学习网    2020-05-21   English BBS   Favorite  

Here's what's going on in the Empire State. It's the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in America. More than 75,000 cases have been confirmed in New York. So, what's hopeful about that?
Well, even though the disease is still spreading there and the number of deaths are increasing, the rate of infection might be slowing down. And here's what we mean. The state's governor says the number of coronavirus cases was doubling every two days at one point. But then it seemed to slow down, doubling every three days and then four days. Now, it's every six days.
And a cnn count found that New York's daily increase in coronavirus cases over the past week was less than a third of the daily increase in a week beforehand.

So, what all this may indicate is that the spread of coronavirus in America's hardest hit state may be significantly slowing down. This isn't proven yet. There's a backlog in coronavirus testing there. So we don't know the true number of cases right this moment. We also don't know why they're slowing down, if they're slowing down. New York has strict limits on who's allowed to go to work. And it's banned parties and celebrations entirely. It's possible that could be having an impact, though the program has only been in place for a week.
New York alone has more than 40 percent of all the coronavirus cases in America. And it's looking for the all the help it can get.
