Health officials say a coronavirus outbreak in the U.S. appears inevitable saying it’s not a question of if this will happen but when this will happen and how many people in this country will have severe illnesses. Governor Tim Walz says he’s receiving daily briefings on the coronavirus situation:

“We’re preparing, which it would be reckless not to,… not if, but when we end up with a case in Minnesota.”

The Trump administration is asking Congress for two-point-five billion dollars in emergency funding to combat the crisis. Democrats have called it too little, too late.
