“It’s been a strange time for everybody, right?”
Those were the opening remarks from Nuggets head coach Michael Malone in his Altitude Sports Radio appearance Wednesday, succinctly describing the devastating impact of the Coronavirus over the past month in the U.S.
As of April 8, there are 395,011 cases of COVID-19 with 12,754 causalities, according to the CDC. Malone has also personally been affected as the New York City-raised coach has plenty of family in the city, which is currently considered the epicenter of the pandemic in the U.S. with 138,863 cases. Colorado has been assertive with its social distancing rules, but there are 5,655 cases in the state, including 193 deaths.
