Coronavirus confirmed in all 50 states and D.C., after West Virginia confirms first case
Confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus, which has rapidly spread across United States in a matter of weeks, have now been reported in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

West Virginia became the last state to confirm its first case Tuesday as local municipalities, state governments and the White House have worked to broaden testing access and implement mitigation protocols with the hope of slowing down the infection’s spread.

“Our health officials came to me and said we do have our first positive in the Eastern Panhandle,” West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice (R) said in a news conference. “We knew it was coming. We’ve prepared for this, and we shouldn’t panic.”

Alabama, Idaho and Montana were among the final states to report covid-19 cases.

1. Donnie just complimented WV for no cases

It’s like the stock market, every time he opens his mouth it goes down. I wish he’d just STFU. Kind of like mom said if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. And Trump cannot say anything nice, there’s always a dig or some self serving twist.
