A new possible epicenter of coronavirus has been named. Margaret Harris, the spokeswoman for the World Health Organization (WHO), said the United States could become one. Her words are quoted by the South China Morning Post.
“Now there is a rapid increase in the number of diseases in the United States. So they really have that kind of potential. We can’t say for now that this is already so, but it could become a reality potentially, ”Harris said.
In the United States, according to recent data, 54893 cases of infection were recorded. 783 people died, 348 were cured. In total, more than 421 thousand people were infected with coronavirus infection in the world, more than 18.8 thousand were killed, 107.7 thousand were cured. An outbreak of COVID-19 disease caused by a new type of coronavirus was first reported in late December 2019 in Wuhan, China.
