Dr. Deborah Birks, coordinator of the 2019-nCoV Coronavirus Response Process at the White House, told reporters at a briefing that officials are worried about the rapid increase in cases in Cook County (Illinois) and Wayne County (Michigan). Both counties include the cities and surrounding communities of Chicago and Detroit, respectively.

“We combined all the information to not only understand where and how things are now, but also to predict how they will develop, so that we can warn doctors about where, in our opinion, the next potential hot spot is located,” said Birks.

“In all the districts I mentioned, the hot spots are in the urban areas or communities that serve this urban area,” she continued.

As the 2019-nCoV coronavirus infection testing is becoming increasingly available nationwide, public health officials have been able to more accurately determine which parts of the country are facing serious outbreaks of the virus.

In the United States, New York became the epicenter of COVID-19 disease with tens of thousands of cases in the metro area and nearly 300 deaths in the city alone.

New Orleans and the Seattle area have also been identified as major hot spots.

According to Johns Hopkins University, as of Thursday evening, March 26, more than 1400 confirmed cases of 2019-nCoV coronavirus infection have been reported in Cook County. According to the same data, just under 1400 cases were recorded in Wayne County.

JB officials Pritzker and Gretchen Whitmer called on the federal government to provide their states with additional personal protective equipment and medical tests to deal with the growing number of infections.

Earlier on March 26, President Trump outlined in a letter to the governors a plan classifying each county in the United States by risk in an attempt to ease restrictions that impede economic activity, at least in certain areas.

But officials acknowledged that such a plan would require additional data analysis. Birks told reporters that it pretty much depends on whether people will move from high-risk areas to low-risk areas.
