The U.S. 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.

China had held the top spot since the deadly virus began spreading there in December.

There were 82,404 confirmed infections across America, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University. The first case in the U.S.—a man in Washington state who had recently traveled to Wuhan, China—was reported on Jan. 21. 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. The New York City metro area accounts for 35% of all new cases in the U.S., Deborah Birx, response coordinator for the White House’s coronavirus task force, said in a briefing Thursday.

I guess all countries will ban entry to all Americans and US residents, now!

No more balikbayans for you!

But more dollar remittances, please!

    The fact that you are even comparing the US to China (A country with a much larger population, and a vastly inferior healthcare infrastructure) is worrying.

    There should be no comparison. The Novel Coronavirus should not have torn through Europe and the United States in the way it did.

    To make matters worse, the US has not hit peak Covid 19...It will be some weeks yet before we know what the damage truly is.

    Right, it should not have been this bad if the communist regime alerted the world about the virus ASAP.

    True, if China went on lockdown before Chinese New Year, this wouldn't have blown up like this...Honesty is the best policy.
