Several Researchers/HealthCare Providers in Italy, U.K and China have shown that people can suffer several complications of Corona Virus infection (ranging from mild to severe) which can last for weeks or even Months after recovery. It is feared that some people might never go back to their Pre-Infection state (Meaning their QoL (Quality of Life)) may never go back to normal

The most closely spreading virus best matches the virus strain spreading in Europe rather than in China. President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused the virus of not preventing its spread to the United States.

African Americans have been hard hit by the economic impact of the coVID-19 pandemic.The unemployment rate for black Americans is close to 17 percent, compared with 14.5 percent for whites.

CDC confirms that coronavirus already spreading in New York City when European travel ban went into effect in March
A U.S. ban on travelers arriving from the EU on March 13 came too late to prevent widespread community transmission in New York City, according to a report Thursday from the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
CDC researchers analyzed the genetic code of virus samples collected from three dozen infected New Yorkers in early March, and found that most of those early cases of the coronavirus could be traced back to Europe. It also confirms what many researchers have already said: That widespread community transmission was well under way in New York City by the time mitigation measures, such as the travel ban, school closures and stay-at-home orders went into effect.
None of the New York City strains were directly connected to Wuhan, China, where the outbreak originated — an “unanticipated” finding, according to the CDC researchers.
“Although travel restrictions are an important mitigation strategy, by the time the European restrictions were implemented, importation and community transmission of SARS-CoV-2 had already occurred,” reads the report.
It’s not the first research to indicate travel from Europe triggered New York City’s severe outbreak, the worst in the U.S., in which more than 25,000 people have died. Gov. Andrew Cuomo has repeated for weeks that the virus came from Europe, and said the CDC report “definitively explains what happened in New York.”

“The federal government just missed it,” he said, adding that the U.S. “spends billions of dollars on an alphabet soup of federal agencies charged with that specific responsibility.”
He said the failure of the federal government to listen to its own health officials is “wreaking havoc” on the country and now threatens the state again, as residents from hot spots in the South and Southwest travel to New York. The White House did not immediately return requests for comment on the CDC study or the timing of the travel ban.
Earlier on Thursday, Cuomo tempered hopes for the fourth and final stage of reopening in New York City, in part out of concern over the spike in U.S. cases. Museums, indoor cultural venues, malls and indoor dining will remain closed when New York City is cleared to enter Phase 4, which could begin as soon as Monday, Cuomo said.
The state will make a final decision on Phase 4 in New York City by 4 p.m. Friday, but either way no new indoor activities will open as part of the phase, Cuomo said. Reopenings could be limited to botanical gardens, zoos and outdoor film and TV production, Mayor Bill de Blasio suggested at his own briefing on Thursday.

“We are still seeing issues not just in the bars and restaurants, but all across the country,” Cuomo said, pointing to air-conditioned indoor spaces at risk of spreading the disease. “So, we’re going to take that precaution in New York City.”
The state is also cracking down on bars and restaurants where standing crowds and poor mask enforcement risk spreading the virus. Only venues that serve food will be allowed to serve alcoholic beverages and only to seated patrons. Walk-up bar service is not permitted in the state, Cuomo said.
Another new policy will shutter New York City businesses if they are cited for three or more violations, and could be closed before that for “egregious violations,” Cuomo said.
Other New York City developments:
? New York City will provide care for 100,000 public-school children on “remote learning” days, when the child is not expected to attend class in-person. The so-called learning labs will host children in kindergarten through eighth grade at libraries and other cultural institutions, giving some working parents child care five days a week. The school system, which supported 1.1 million students before the pandemic, is expected to expand the program to more students throughout the year.

New CDC Report Confirms First COVID Cases in NY Came From Europe, Other States
A new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is confirming other studies that have said the first cases of the coronavirus studied in New Yorkers came from Europe and other places in the U.S.
The airport screenings and bans on foreign nationals traveling from China implemented on Feb. 2 and restrictions for travelers from Europe implemented on March 13 did nothing to stop or slow the spread of SARS-CoV-2, the virus which causes COVID-19, because it was already in New York City, according to the report released Thursday.
Using data collected from patients with influenza-like symptoms at six New York City emergency departments (two in Manhattan, two in Queens, one in Brooklyn and one in the Bronx) during March 1–20, the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene found that out of 544 people, 36 were SARS-CoV-2–positive with specimens resembled those circulating in Europe.
Five out of the six emergency departments were selected due to their usage by patients residing in ZIP codes with a high proportion of Chinese speakers, the report said. However, none of the samples collected were directly connected to sequences from Wuhan, China, where the outbreak originated.
The report also found that during the weeks of March 8 and March 15, there was an increase in confirmed cases of COVID-19 among New Yorkers under 18 years of age. The DOHMH estimated there was an increase in prevalence and undetected cases of COVID-19 among youths, which begs the question what role children played in community transmission at the beginning of the pandemic, and how effective school closure is as a mitigation strategy.
