Maps of three Fridays show speed of coronavirus spread across US

Whether coronavirus came in like a lamb this March may be debatable — but it is undoubtably going out like a lion.

Maps of the past three Fridays show the chilling speed of the virus’ spread through America.

A mere two weeks ago, on Friday the 13th, there had been 41 coronavirus deaths nationwide.

That number is now 30 times as high. As of this Friday, the 27th, the CDC is reporting 1,246 deaths in the US.

Back on the 13th, three states — Montana, Idaho and West Virginia — had zero reported cases, and New York State had just over 400.

Fast forward to Friday the 27th. No state has now been left untouched, and in New York, the epicenter of America’s coronavirus crisis, more than 44,000 cases have been recorded.
