(TargetLiberty.org) – According to the official numbers, only 137 people in the United States are infected with the novel coronavirus. However, it appears these numbers are way off. The one thing we now know for sure is that these numbers are far too low to be accurate.
The testing process has been plagued with problems, including flawed testing kits. Strict requirements have prevented doctors from even testing patients they think might be infected.
To date, less than 500 people in the US have been tested for coronavirus. With so few people being tested and new cases popping up quickly, it’s clear that the infection is far more widespread than what is being reported.
Because of botched efforts by the administration, Coronavirus numbers in the US are being grossly underreported. South Korea is testing more than 10,000 people every day. The US has not even tested 500 people overall. The numbers will get much worse. https://t.co/ZZSEVsCrlm

Now that testing is becoming more widely available, we can expect to see even more cases of coronavirus being confirmed. The problem is that experts will have a hard time figuring out which of these cases are actually new and which just went undiagnosed until now.
What can you do? First, as hard as it is, don’t panic. Second, remember that following stringent handwashing procedures is your best defense.
