Containment Zones: 'Dramatic Action' in Some Areas as Coronavirus Reaches 1,000 Milestone in US

As the number of cases of coronavirus in the US passes 1,000, government officials, businesses, schools and even political candidates are taking new measures to contain the virus.  

In Seattle, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee was set to announce a ban on gatherings of more than 250.  

Some universities are going to online classes, and airlines are reducing domestic flights. 

On the campaign trail, Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden both canceled rallies.

New Rochelle, New York has been declared America’s first containment zone.  New York Gov. Mario Cuomo called it “dramatic action” but said “this is literally a matter of life and death.”

The containment zone is a one mile radius from the Young Israel Synagogue, where dozens of people were exposed by a sick man.

Dr. Anthony Fauci at the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases warned the rest of the nation to take precautions and “that it doesn’t matter if you’re in a state that has no cases or one case. You have to start taking seriously what you can do now.”

Vice President Mike Pence says over a million more test kits will be distributed to local areas by the end of the week. And President Trump was also urging Americans to stay calm, saying the virus “will go away.”

Stocks gained almost 5 percent on Wall Street Tuesday, as the Dow bounced back by more than 1,100 points, recovering about half of the market’s historic losses from the day before, but markets remain volatile. 

President Trump is proposing a possible payroll tax cut to stimulate the economy and it’s likely the Treasury Department will extend the April 15 tax deadline to help individuals and businesses.

“We’re also going to be talking about hourly wage earners getting help so they can be in a position where they’re not ever going to miss a paycheck,” Trump said.

Economic advisor Larry Kudlow says the proposed tax cut could last through the end of the year, telling reporters, “The payroll tax holiday is a bold move. It’s a very bold move.”

But Democratic leaders came out against it. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said, “The Administration seems to believe that the answer to any problem is another tax cut.”

Most states aren’t seeing the high number of cases like New York or California, but they’re preparing for the worst.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
