The coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing crisis in the USA has seen some stabilisation in recent weeks. At one point almost 1000 deaths were being recorded on a daily basis but things have improved off late. As of May 19, the USA has recorded more than 1.54M coronavirus cases with more than 90,000+ fatalities. US health authorities and government officials are working round the clock in order to help get these numbers down and reduce the workload on healthcare workers. The All in Challenge started by Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin helped raise funds for various charitable causes in order to help those affected by the COVID-19 outbreak across the globe.
