Health officials in Santa Clara County said they have recognized at least three other people who died at home from COVID-19 before the first documented death in the Northern California county on 9 March. The COVID-19 crisis demanded a collective and immediate response but the U.S government did not appropriately evaluate the warning despite having at least two months to draft out a plan, and failed in its response once the crisis was full-blown.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
