The virus is spreading all over U.S rapidly with 40 deaths among 1654 ppl infected. The number of increasing cases is increasing by more than three hundred people a day in U.S. While there is evidence shows that more people infected but not tested yet since the capcity of testing agencies is about 400 specimens a day. We should take action before virus comes to us instead of waiting for it to spread out. Therefore, I suggest closing school temporarily is an essential thing to do.

How COVID-19 spreads?

Person to person, imagine sitting in a classroom of 30 students.
Coughs or sneezs, which means face masks are important. However, there's not a single face mask left in stock in school.
Contact with surfaces and object, which means virus from past sessions could still survive and infect people in the next session.
Something important is: People might spread coronavirus 14 days-24 days before they show symptoms, everyone is potential.

Fatality rate of COVID-19:

People said coronavirus is just flu and you got cured after all. However, the fatality rate of flu is 14.9 per 100,000(0.0149%) compared to COVID-19’s 3%. China has just lowered the rate to 0.86% in cities except Wuhan after one month closing down of all infrastructures. We should stay safe until CDC has enough testing kits, face masks, goggles and treatments for everyone.

Fellow students: Please wear face masks. Don't touch mouths or eyes with unwashed hands. Stay Safe!
