Since the end of World War II, have we ever seen the entire globe gripped by so much fear? This week, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the U.S. and Europe has absolutely exploded, and authorities all over the western world are rushing to shut down public gatherings of all kinds. The NCAA has banned fans from upcoming tournament games, the NBA just suspended the entire season because a Utah Jazz player tested positive, and dozens of other sporting events have been canceled all over the planet. In both the U.S. and Europe, schools are being shut down for weeks, some universities are telling their students not to come back for the rest of the semester, and a whole host of concerts, conferences, festivals and religious gatherings are either being postponed or canceled altogether.
We have never seen anything like this before, and the implications are staggering.
Keeping everyone at home for a few weeks is one thing.

Monahan made the comments to Senate staff during a closed-door meeting Tuesday afternoon, according to NBC News.
