The U.S. caseload has surpassed 1,000. As the nation scrambled to understand the scope of the escalating public health crisis, the number of known cases of coronavirus infection in the United States surpassed 1,000 on Tuesday night, signaling that the coronavirus was spreading widely in communities on both coasts and in the center of the country.

America’s first known coronavirus case was announced on Jan. 21 in Washington State. Six weeks later, the number of cases had risen to 70, most of them tied to overseas travel. But since then, new case reports have poured in, first by the dozens, then the hundreds.

  • A majority of the cases have been in Washington State, California or New York, where everyday life swiftly began to change. Businesses closed. Colleges canceled class. Governors urged people to avoid crowds.
  • But the virus is now found in every region of the country, including Massachusetts, where dozens of new cases were announced on Tuesday, and South Dakota, where the governor announced the state’s five first cases, including one man who died. The number of states with no reported cases now stands at about a dozen.
  • Thirty-one deaths across the country have now been linked to the coronavirus. Officials in Sacramento County, Calif., said on Tuesday that a woman in her 90s died after contracting the illness.

Britain’s health minister says she is infected.

Nadine Dorries, the British health minister, confirmed reports late on Tuesday that she had tested positive for the coronavirus. She had attended a reception at Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s official residence two days earlier.

Ms. Dorries said in a post on Twitter that she had felt “pretty rubbish” but hoped that the worst of the viral illness had come and gone. British news reports said she was the first member of Parliament to test positive.

Health officials were rushing to trace her contacts, which included dozens of constituents and lawmakers, as well as co-workers at the Department of Health and Social Care, according to British news outlets. She was at 10 Downing Street, Mr. Johnson’s residence, on Sunday for International Women’s Day.

The news sparked discussion in Britain about whether Parliament would need to be suspended. Lawmakers meet in the cramped House of Commons, sitting shoulder to shoulder on green leather benches and often spilling into the aisles and standing room areas, creating fertile conditions for illness to spread.

Ms. Dorries started feeling ill on Friday as she was signing a statutory instrument that declared coronavirus to be a “notifiable disease,” a step that allowed British companies to obtain insurance coverage.

Some observers noted that Ms. Dorries appeared to have voted in the House of Commons about a week ago, meaning she had at least brief contact with other lawmakers at a time when she may have been contagious.

But her most dangerous contact may have been with her 84-year-old mother, who is staying with her, Ms. Dorries wrote on Twitter late Tuesday night. “Thanks for so many good wishes,” Ms. Dorries wrote, adding that her mother had developed a cough.

Delays in testing set back the U.S. coronavirus response.

Dr. Helen Y. Chu, an infectious disease expert in Seattle, wanted to repurpose tests from a flu research project to monitor the coronavirus after the first confirmed American case landed in her area in late January.

But nearly everywhere she turned, state and federal officials repeatedly rejected the idea, interviews and emails show, even as weeks crawled by and outbreaks emerged in countries outside of China, where the infection began.

By Feb. 25, Dr. Chu and her colleagues could not bear to wait any longer. They began performing coronavirus tests, without government approval.

What came back confirmed their worst fear. They quickly had a positive test from a local teenager with no recent travel history. The coronavirus had already established itself on American soil without anybody realizing it.

“It must have been here this entire time,” Dr. Chu recalled thinking with dread. “It’s just everywhere already.”

In fact, officials would later discover through testing, the virus had already contributed to the deaths of two people, and it would go on to kill 20 more in the Seattle region over the following days.

Federal and state officials said the flu study could not be repurposed because it did not have explicit permission from research subjects; the labs were also not certified for clinical work. While acknowledging the ethical questions, Dr. Chu and others argued there should be more flexibility in an emergency during which so many lives could be lost. On Monday night, state regulators told them to stop testing altogether.

The failure to tap into the flu study was just one in a series of missed chances by the federal government to ensure more widespread testing during the early days of the outbreak, when containment would have been easier. Instead, local officials across the country were left to work blindly as the crisis grew undetected and exponentially.

Washington State prepares to restrict gatherings as U.S. crisis grows

Gov. Jay Inslee of Washington State will announce on Wednesday a prohibition on community gatherings of 250 or more people in the Seattle area as the state takes extraordinary steps to contain a coronavirus outbreak, according to a person involved in the discussions.

The announcement, according to the person involved, is expected to target events such as sporting and entertainment gatherings while offering exceptions to things like retail stores. Schools will not be affected, but districts will be expected to review things like sporting events that may draw significant crowds.

Washington State and the Seattle area have adopted increasingly stringent controls as the number of confirmed coronavirus cases has approached 300 — the most in the country — and the number of deaths has reached 24.

Santa Clara County, Calif. — which includes the city of San Jose and much of Silicon Valley — has already banned large public gatherings, and man employers have temporarily closed down or asked people to work at home. On Tuesday, Google recommended that tens of thousands of its North American employees work from home. Previously, it had only extended that policy to workers in the Seattle area.

In addition, Ohio State University and Harvard University joined the growing list of universities and colleges that have suspended in-person classes — just one of many fronts in the battle to slow the spread of virus across the United States.

Harvard, whose spring break begins on Saturday, asked students not to return to campus when the break ends on March 23, a decision few schools have made so far. On Monday, Amherst College asked all students to leave campus by as early as next week.

Some of the best-known fixtures in higher education have mandated a switch to online-only classes to keep people apart, hoping it will slow the spread of the virus: Cornell University, New York University, Columbia University, the University of Washington, Stanford University, American University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Princeton University, Barnard College, Hofstra University, Rice University and the University of California, Berkeley.

No audience for the debate in Arizona on Sunday.

There will be no live audience. No spin room. Virtually no traveling members of the press. This is a presidential primary debate in the age of coronavirus.

CNN and Democratic officials announced on Tuesday that “at the request of the campaigns and out of an abundance of caution,” the Democratic debate in Phoenix on Sunday between former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and Senator Bernie Sanders would be a significantly pared-down affair.

The live audience — whose jeers and cheers can be a major variable for the candidates onstage — will be missing. Instead, Mr. Biden and Mr. Sanders will debate each other in an empty theater, joined only by a handful of moderators and television crew members.

  • A revolutionary year for smartphones, which introduced such gems as Huawei P30 Pro, Samsung Galaxy S10, and Apple iPhone 11 and similarly we expect 2020 even better and advanced in the era of Smartphones.
  • This year has flooded with heavy rumors about advancement in Smartphones, which may introduce iPhone 12, OnePlus 8, and P40 Pro, along with a handful of other intriguing-looking handsets.

Let us have a look for the incoming smartphones having advanced technology:


  • Samsung’s Galaxy S20 which includes the Galaxy S20+ and Galaxy S20 Ultra along with the base model.
  • Identical front aside from screen size – 6.2in, 6.7in, and 6.9in respectively – with a Note 10-esque punch-hole camera cutout at top center. The screen is pretty much flat this time. They are of QHD+ displays with 120Hz refresh rates, but you can only hit that super-smooth peak if you opt for Full HD resolution instead.
  • On the back, there are more differences like three cameras on the S20 and four on the other two models, but the S20 Ultra bulks up with a beefier back camera array that includes a 10x hybrid zoom/100x digital “Space Zoom” feature (the others do 3x/30x). All three of them shoot 8K video, too, so expect sterling footage.
  • Carrying a large battery packs (ranging from 4,000-5,000mAh) and 5G support across the board, except on an optional base LTE model, they’re as perk-packed as we’ve come to expect from Samsung phones. The Galaxy S20 sells for £799 (LTE)/£899 (5G), the GS20+ goes for £999 (5G), and the Ultra pushes up to £1,199, and most likely they all will be available during March / April 2020.


  • We are very hopeful that after 3 versions of the bold and inventive iPhone X design, this year may come up with another best bof best iPhone, however, it’s too early to speculate.
  • The future iPhone 12 may carry screen face while adopting a flattened metal frame that’s more akin to the classic iPhone 4, not to mention the current iPad Pro. Screen sizes could shift a bit too, going to 5.4in, 6.1in, and 6.7in (as opposed to the 5.8/ 6.1/ 6.5 in of present iPhones).
  • As far as notch is concerned, a mix plate is on the offing. No consensus have developed so far, some suggestions revealed that no notch at all will be seen rather all of the sensors packed into the slim upper bezel. Whereas others claim Apple will redesign the notch. Rumors also point to a four-eye design on the back, with a time-of-flight camera added to the current trio of the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max.
  • September 2020 will reveal all aspects of iPhone 12 after its launch. Prices will surely be very high comparatively since apple has a strong brand name.


  • With a new phone out every five or six months, it’s no surprise that we’ve already heard some things about the OnePlus 8. Expected to launch in late spring, the standard OnePlus 8 looks to swap the current water drop notch for a Galaxy S10-like punch-hole camera in the upper left of the screen.
  • We are not sure yet whether the OnePlus 8 Pro will stick with the pop-up selfie camera from before, but we are eager to find out. And rumors suggest that the OnePlus 8 will finally incorporate wireless charging, one of the only flagship features that the company has skipped to date, but we’ll have to see how that impacts price if true.
  • As usual, OnePlus is drip-feeding official details – and the first is a confirmed, super-smooth 120Hz refresh rate for the screen, beating the excellent 90Hz screens of its 2019 models.


  • According to one of the leak, OnePlus will launch a mid-ranger, too. They point to a handset that a centered punch-hole cutout on what looks to be a flat screen, and a left-side rectangular camera module on the back with two sensors.
  • Still, OnePlus has routinely offered flagship-level phones during its existence, so we’re curious to see what a trimmed-down edition looks and feels like if this leak is legit. The screen is expected to be about 6.4 – 6.5 in and will likely pack in an in-display fingerprint sensor, but beyond that, there aren’t a lot of details on specs.


  • The Google Pixel 3a was one of last year’s most surprising phones, bucking Google’s high-end trend to deliver a flagship-quality camera paired with mid-range specs – at a reasonable price. We’re expecting that trend to continue in 2020 with the release of a Pixel 4a, and have produced concept renders based on what they’re hearing. The images show a phone that skips the huge, sensor-packed “forehead” bezel of the standard Pixel 4 and instead opts for a Galaxy S10-like punch-hole camera cutout on the front.
  • The back has what looks like a smaller square camera module, and the fingerprint sensor returns. It’s like a hybrid of the Pixel 3a and Pixel 4, really, which sounds pretty appealing. Most likely, it will launch in early summer like the Pixel 3a did last year, and we’re hoping to see similar mid-range price points again.


  • Haven’t been keen on Apple’s recent shift to extra-large devices? You might be in luck in 2020, as building leaks and rumours suggest that Apple will finally, finally release a successor to the smartly pint-sized Apple iPhone SE 2
  • However, this one will reportedly take after the iPhone 8 instead, which means you’ll get a 4.7in LCD display, the familiar rounded shape of Apple’s last-gen handsets, and a Touch ID sensor. At least it’s expected to pack Apple’s latest and greatest processor, the A13 Bionic, so it will be comparable in performance to the iPhone 11 models.
  • Leaks point to a late March launch and early April release. There’s potential for “iPhone 9” branding rather than iPhone SE 2, too, with a price point that we’d guess to be in the £400-450 range. That’s a total guess, however.


  • We already got the Moto G8 Plus in late 2019, but that won’t be the extent of Motorola’s latest generation of budget contenders. Motorola also recently announced a Moto G8 Power alongside the intriguing Moto G Stylus.
  • The Moto G8 Power is sort of a hybrid of the philosophies of past Power and core G models, with a large 6.4in 1080p display and a massive 5,000mAh battery cell, along with a mid-range Qualcomm Snapdragon 665 chip and 4GB RAM onboard. With a punch-hole camera cutout on the screen and a triple-camera main setup on the back, it maintains the Moto G’s tendency to replicate flagship trends about a year later (that’s not a negative).
  • Meanwhile, the Moto G Stylus keeps similar design and specs, albeit with a smaller 4,000mAh battery – but it adds in a Galaxy Note-esque pop-out stylus, albeit at a fraction of the cost of Samsung’s very luxe flagships. This ought to be a compelling alternative for those unwilling to pay triple for a Note, and while the Moto G Stylus hasn’t yet been confirmed for a UK release as of this writing, we expect that it’ll arrive sometime this spring alongside the Moto G8 Power.
