The US has the Potential to Become the New Epicenter of Infection

The US has the Potential to Become the New Epicenter of Infection”

According to Harris, as of last Saturday, 75 per cent of new infections across the globe were recorded in Europe, while 15 per cent cases were from the United States.

Medical workers bring a patient from an Italian Red Cross ambulance into an intensive care unit set up in a sports center outside the San Raffaele hospital in Milan, on March 23, 2020, during the new coronavirus pandemic.

Over the past 24 hours, 85% of new cases worldwide were from Europe and the US, WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris told reporters.

When she was further asked if the USA can become the new epicentre, Harris replied that the United Nations health agency is now "seeing a very large acceleration in cases in the US".

"The World market for face masks and ventilators is insane".

More than 46,000 Covid-19 cases have been confirmed in the United States, up from less than 6,000 a week ago.

"Ultimately, the goal is to ease the guidelines and open things up to very large sections of our country as we near the end of our historic battle with the invisible enemy", the president said.

More than 33,400 people have tested positive for Covid-19 across the United States and 400 have died as a result of the virus, the nation's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported on Monday.

The WHO warning came just hours after U.S. Vice President Mike Pence applauded how the country was coming together, including mentioning the contributions from the business community, to take on coronavirus as it continues to spread and impair the country. Forty percent of the amount was attributable to new USA cases, in which several cities and states are now dealing with lock downs, business shutdowns, and taxpayers ordered to remain at home as far as possible.

Britain, believed by experts to be about two weeks behind Italy in the outbreak cycle, on Tuesday began curbs on movement without precedent in peacetime after Prime Minister Boris Johnson ordered the country to stay at home.

The streets of the capital were quiet as all but essential shops closed and people only went to work if it was unavoidable.

France is the only other European country with more than 350 deaths on Tuesday, according to WHO.

The comments reflect the soaring number of cases and deaths in America.

However, the risk from overseas infections appears to be on the rise, prompting tougher screening and quarantine measures in major cities such as the capital Beijing.

Italy is still the epicenter for the meantime because they have 63, 927 cases and they are followed by the United States. "I would love to have it opened by Easter (April 12)".

South Africa's confirmed number of coronavirus cases rose to 554 on Tuesday ahead of a nationwide lockdown panned for 21 days from midnight on Thursday.
