Dr. Deborah birx, coordinator of interventions 2019 coronavirus-nCoV in the White house, told reporters at a briefing that officials are concerned about the rapid growth of cases in cook County (Illinois) and Wayne County (Michigan). Both districts include the city and surrounding communities of Chicago and Detroit, respectively.

“We combined all the information to not only understand where and how things are now, but to anticipate how they will develop, so we can warn doctors about where, in our opinion, is the next potential hot spot,” said birx.

“In all the districts I have mentioned hot spots are located in urban areas or communities that serve this urban area,” she continued.

Because testing for infection by 2019 coronavirus-nCoV is becoming more available across the country, officials of public health were able to more accurately determine what part of the country face serious outbreaks of the virus. In the US new York became the epicenter of the disease COVID-19 with tens of thousands of cases in the metro area and nearly 300 deaths in just one city.

New Orleans and Seattle were also identified as major hotspots.

According to the Johns Hopkins University, as of Thursday evening, March 26, in cook County was more than 1400 confirmed cases of infection with coronavirus 2019-nCoV. According to the same data, in Wayne County was slightly less than 1400 occasions.

Officials George.B. Pritzker and Gretchen Whitmer asked the Federal government to grant States additional means of individual protection and medical tests to solve the increasing number of cases of infection.

Earlier on March 26, President trump outlined in a letter to the governors plan with the classification of each County in the United States at risk in an attempt to weaker constraints, which impede economic activity, at least in certain areas.

But officials acknowledged that such a plan would require additional data analysis. Birx told reporters that this will largely depend on whether people move from areas of high risk level in areas with low levels of risk.
