COVID-19 : USA Takes Lead As Country With Most Corona Virus Cases [FULL GIST]
United States of America has overtaken China and Italy with most confirmed coronavirus cases as over 85,500 Americans have been tested positive for the virus.
State-by-state statistics released late Thursday showed confirmed cases of coronavirus in the US had overtaken China’s estimated 81,782 cases and Italy reported 80,589.
The big outbreaks in New York, New Jersey and California were confirmed.
The US has reported 1,300 deaths from corona-virus, with 3,291 behind China and 8,215 behind Italy.
When asked at a White House briefing on Thursday afternoon about the recently confirmed cases of corona virus, President Trump said it was “a testament to the amount of research we are doing.”
Trump’s Words were :
“Number one, you don’t know what the numbers are in China. We are testing tremendous numbers of people.”
“They [the American people] have to go back to work, our country has to go back, our country is based on that and I think it’s going to happen pretty quickly.
We may take sections of our country, we may take large sections of our country that aren’t so seriously affected and we may do it that way.
A lot of people misinterpret when I say go back –
they’re going to be practicing as much as you can social distancing, and washing your hands and not shaking hands and all of the things we talked about.”
