U.S. coronavirus cases have topped 1,000, according to an unofficial count compiled by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, Your Content has learned.

The 1000th case was reported on Tuesday night, as state and local officials in California and New York began enacting aggressive new measures to contain and mitigate the spread of the virus. The numbers have risen rapidly since health authorities announced the first community-spread case in California on Feb. 26.

Public health officials at all levels have warned consistently that the number of cases would inevitably rise, including President Trump and Vice President Pence. VP Pence spearheads the White House Coronavirus Taskforce. 

Director Anthony Fauci of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases stressed during a White House briefing on Tuesday that the rising number of ‘outbreaks’ was expected and that it would certainly continue to grow by the following morning.

The number of cases has continued to mount in Europe, Fauci noted, though he said it appeared that the epidemic’s growth rate was slowing in China.

“If you look at the curves of outbreaks, they go big peaks and come down. What we need to do is flatten that down. You do that by trying to interfere with the natural flow of the outbreak,” Fauci said. “We would like the country to realize that as a nation we can’t be doing the kinds of things we were doing a few months ago.”
