The United States is on the brink of an outbreak of a potentially deadly coronavirus that is spreading rapidly across the country.
At least 1,700 people in Florida and other states have tested positive for the coronaviruses, which can cause severe illness, paralysis and death.
But officials in New York and other cities have also reported cases of mild cases of the virus, including one in Brooklyn that was linked to a hospital in New Jersey.
A report published Thursday by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said that the coronave is spread through a virus that can infect the nose, mouth and throat.
“The U.s. health system is not prepared for this event,” said Michael Kugelman, director of the CDC’s Office of Surveillance and Influenza.
“We have not had a coronaviral pandemic this severe in the United States for over 70 years,” he added.
New York Gov.
Andrew Cuomo said that people should be prepared for a potential outbreak.
“This is not something that is going to be solved by the end of the year,” he said.
“It is something that we have to take seriously.
We have to do what we can do in order to protect our families, to protect ourselves.”
New York’s state-run health department said that about 1,000 workers and students at the New York City Public Library are in quarantine.
New Jersey Gov.
Chris Christie, a Republican, said that if the state can’t get control of the outbreak, it will send the state to war with the federal government.
“Let me just tell you, we are not going to wait around,” he told reporters.
“We will not wait for them to make the decision to get involved.
We will not let them take our country from us.
We are going to do everything we can to stop this coronavovirus from getting out of hand.”
