“It is conceivable that on the 9th, there were 15 aircraft full of patients with new coronary pneumonia in the United States. The passenger plane crashed and there was no survivor.” This is a comment made by CNN on the 10th after the number of new deaths in the United States reached 3124 in a single day the previous day, setting a new high since the outbreak.

CNN stated that the US federal government has been slow in responding to the epidemic and missed the best time. At the most critical moment, the federal government did not fully unite the domestic people to fight the epidemic.
