The US war against coronavirus has taken devastating turns this week. But with more people taking social distancing seriously, researchers predict the coming months won't be as dire as initially feared. More than 400,000 people in the US have been infected with coronavirus, and more than 12,900 have died. A record 1,858 deaths were reported in just one day Tuesday. ...
