The US has confirmed more than 700,000 coronavirus cases on Saturday, with a death toll over 37,000, according to the latest data from the John Hopkins University.

Since its first case on January 21, the US has quickly surpassed other countries to become the new epicenter with a death rate of 4.3 percent after the Trump administration turned a blind eye to its development and lulled Americans into a false sense of security because the president wanted to stay positive and be a "cheerleader" for the country. 

Here we present you the fact-based timeline of how the US task force, led by President Donald Trump, has downplayed the coronavirus crisis and squandered the precious time in fighting the virus.
