First coronavirus death in US confirmed

The disease has a 14 day germination period.  During that period it is unlikely to be detected  until it causes enough trouble.  But, during that period an infected person can and will infect others.  People without healthcare, insurance or enough cash to pay will probably put off seeing a doctor until they fall out in the streets.  By which time they've probably infected many others.  So the pandemic continues to spread.  Trump's incompetent staff sent unprotected workers to, very possibly get infected themselves, while seeking to quarantine travelers.  Then they went home to their neighborhoods and likely spread the infection rendering the quarantine useless.  But the  President is only concerned that the market is falling and hurting his chances at being re-elected.
