As the UK tries to prevent a second wave of coronavirus, over in the US they’re still trying to put a lid on the first.
9 Charts That Show Just How Bad The Coronavirus Situation Is In The US Right Now
The situation is becoming increasingly dire by the day and the number of deaths from Covid-19 is beginning to reflect the massive surge in infections seen in recent weeks.
Compounding the crisis are a president still doing his best not to acknowledge anything is wrong, and an economy in tatters.
Here are nine charts that show just how bad things are right now.1) CasesFirst let’s look at the global level and the rather straightforward fact that the US has more confirmed cases of Coronavirus than any other country. President Trump has tried to downplay this fact, saying it’s simply a result of more actual testing, a point he tried to make recently in what was possibly his dumbest tweet yet.For the 1/100th time, the reason we show so many Cases, compared to other countries that haven’t done nearly as well as we have, is that our TESTING is much bigger and better. We have tested 40,000,000 people. If we did 20,000,000 instead, Cases would be half, etc. NOT REPORTED!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 9, 2020This is nonsense for two reasons. Firstly, just because you don’t confirm a case of coronavirus by testing, doesn’t mean it stops existing.
And secondly, the percentage of people testing positive out of all those being tested is increasing rapidly, a sure sign the virus is spreading.2) Where those cases are appearingIn the early days of the pandemic, US states on the east coast were ravaged while elsewhere infection remained low. 
This is no longer the case with only a handful of states now reporting fewer than 10,000 cases.3) When those cases appearedWhile the total number of cases is alarming, the timing of them is even more so. While regions that were hotspots at the beginning of the pandemic such as New York State have seen a reduction of cases, this has been massively outweighed by the number of new infections across the rest of the country.The US shattered its daily record for coronavirus infections on Thursday, reporting more than 77,000 new cases – amply demonstrating the country has failed to contain the first wave even as the threat of a second looms large.4) DeathsThe US has the highest death toll of any country – although, measured per capita, the UK, Spain, Italy, Sweden and France still have more. But when looking at daily fatalities, the numbers paint a far more worrying picture than in any of those countries.
During the peak of the crisis in April, the US was reporting more than 2,000 deaths every day. Since then, the number has reduced – but, because of the lag between people catching the disease and dying from it, it is now moving upwards again.The very real concern is that in the coming days the daily death toll will reflect the rise in infections and spike dramatically. 5) LockdownAs well as presenting an unprecedented humanitarian crisis, the coronavirus pandemic also presents Trump with an unprecedented economic crisis, both of which he is attempting to downplay. 
The president has only tweeted once to express sadness over the death toll in the US.We have just reached a very sad milestone with the coronavirus pandemic deaths reaching 100,000. To all of the families & Friends of those who have passed, I want to extend my heartfelt sympathy & love for everything that these great people stood for & represent. God be with you!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) May 28, 2020Meanwhile, he has tweeted positively about the economy 37 times since the beginning of June.The Lamestream Media is not talking about what is happening with the Stock Market and JOBS. Both are doing GREAT! The Radical Left will destroy the USA. Be careful what you wish for!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 13, 2020This is for one simple reason – his re-election hinges upon it. Hampering the economy and therefore his chances of reelection are the lockdowns in place across the US.
Trump has aggressively pushed for states to reopen as quickly as possible but it’s up to the governors of those states, not the White House.
And with the south of the country facing a resurgence in cases, many states have not only paused the plan to end restrictions – most are actually reversing, and reimposing lockdowns.6) The economyDespite Trump’s positive spin on US economic performance, the country has taken a battering and a recovery is way off.
Although it has been falling since May, unemployment is still at a massive 11.1%. Trump has repeatedly trumpeted the jobs added without adding the context of the overall drop.JOBS, JOBS, JOBS! #MAGApic.twitter.com/W3Ify8K2tH— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 2, 2020What this means for the average American is that nearly half of all households have had their incomes negatively affected by the pandemic.7) Mental healthThe pandemic has not only taken a physical toll on those infected with the disease. It has hit the mental health of an even wider segment of the US population.
A recent survey showed a massive surge in the number of Americans reporting symptoms of anxiety and/or depression compared to last year.8) American prideFor decades, American pride has been – for better or worse – the fuel of western civilisation. 
While on the decline in recent years, it has taken a huge knock in 2020.9) The electionThe botched response to the pandemic, the huge death toll and the economic damage has been devastating for Trump.
Despite being largely confined to his home, his Democratic opponent Joe Biden is currently trouncing him in the polls.Related...
