According to the recent reports, the number of deaths due to COVID-19 has surpassed 80,000 in America. The United States of America is seeing the worst crisis in a millennium. Johns Hopkins University has released the proper statistics showing that about 80,000 people have died in the US due to Coronavirus. But moreover, the country needs full-on preparation in order to lower the death rate. According to the predictive models the country may be well past the 1 Lakh mark within the next few weeks.
The city of New York has seen the worst possible case history of all the states. New York reports a total of 3,37,550 cases along with a death count of 26,686. New Jersey is the second most affected state with almost 9,340 people dead by Coronavirus.
Coronavirus Food Crisis
The death may well possibly go beyond 1 or even 2 lakhs. This is mainly because millions of Americans are currently facing a food crisis. The pandemic has left a big mark on the country’s economy and agriculture status. With not much food available, it becomes difficult to survive in such hard times.
People of America! In this difficult moment in our history, we owe it to all communities to make sure access to food is not an issue. Today, @WCKitchen and I are proud to join with @SenKamala Harris @SenatorTimScott @RepThompson @RepMcGovern & @RodneyDavis announce the FEED Act. pic.twitter.com/X2uCMruyeP

Government officials are constantly regulating food supplies in order to provide assistance to the ones most affected. Organizations like Feeding America have taken a step forward by reaching door to door to collect excess food. They distribute this food among people who cannot afford them. Recently the government launched the FEED act to help deliver essential food items to the ones suffering the most in this pandemic. However, it is not enough to cover the vast population of the country.
In such distressing times, we need to come together to help each other. However, let us know what steps you think are necessary to combat such forces in the comment box below.
