You know exactly the one I’m talking about the Coronavirus. So far the coronavirus has been said to have affected approximately 130,000 people and has killed close to 4,300 people. CNN has confirmed that there are 1,267 cases now in the US and are now 38 confirmed deaths. The CDC and World Health Organization are now classifying this virus as a Pandemic. Yea, it just got real, but what is really causing the death toll to go up? Officials are saying the coronavirus has a lot to do with a weak immune system and respiratory health.
