United States Of America has now recorded the highest confirmed cases of Covid-19 . They has overtaken China as the country with the most cases in the world of the novel coronavirus, marking a new milestone in the fight against the global pandemic.

Within six weeks, the U.S. began to see a surge in new infections and the country’s first deaths.

New York is the center of the pandemic in the U.S., with its 37,802 infections accounting for nearly half of all cases in the country and tens of thousands more than any other state.
China has reported a sustained decline in the number of new domestically transmitted infections in recent weeks, even infections have risen among people arriving from abroad.
