America under Great Threat from Coronvirus and Cryptocurrency-Based Drug Business

By now, the entire world is well aware of the destruction that the coronavirus has done and how much it has affected the global economy. Till now, hundreds of families around the world have lost their loved ones to the COVID-19. The rate of deaths doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon.

Among all the chaos, the United States of America has found itself to be facing the worst COVID-19 situation. The number of casualties in America alone has risen up to 200,000, which is 20% of the total number of casualties (1 million) that have taken place globally because of the pandemic.

On the one hand, the American Government and its Health Sectors are making constant efforts to contain the coronavirus by doing experiments/tests to find a vaccine. On the other hand, another health-related problem seems to have emerged. This problem is considered to be even more hazardous and everlasting as compared to the coronavirus situation.

In the recent health reports and surveys, it has been revealed that the number of deaths due to drugs (cocaine & heroine etc.) and illegal medical drug overdose has been on a rise from the past few years and has broken all previous records. The reason behind the increase in overdose death causes is correlated with the current pandemic.

As per the authorities in America, the drug dealers who were used to selling drugs on the streets or in small towns have now started adapting to the Dark Web platform on the internet. Here, they are involved in selling drugs to people through cryptocurrency transactions. As a result, it has become even more difficult for the authorities to identify the criminals as well as their locations due to the decentralized mechanism of the cryptocurrencies.

It has been revealed that the dealers have now started adapting to this technology and are expanding their deals even in the European Region. Therefore, the American Government and the European Union has put together a task force to find such criminals and bring them to justice. It was recently revealed that this task force will have full support from the DEA, FBI, CBP and Europol forces in order to strengthen the impact.
