This conclusion was made on Tuesday, March 24, by specialists from the World Health Organization.

According to WHO, if the trends in the spread of coronavirus infection COVID-19 continue, then very soon the United States will become the global epicenter of the pandemic.

“Today we see that the emergence of new cases of the disease in the US has accelerated, so they have every chance,” said WHO spokeswoman Margaret Harris commented on the prospect of the United States becoming an epicenter.

According to statistics on the incidence of coronavirus, in the United States officially registered about 43 thousand cases of infection. Almost half of them are in the state of New York. In addition, 541 deaths were recorded. One hundred deaths occurred yesterday, making March 23 the most deadly day in the country’s epidemic.

Leana Wen, a visiting professor at the University of Washington, is confident that the situation in the United States will worsen next week. At the same time, she emphasized that the level of distribution of coronavirus depends on the current actions of the Americans.

Earlier, News Front published a story by an American who happened to compare quarantine in China and the United States. As a result, he came to the conclusion that American society itself, accustomed to its “freedoms”, is not able to responsibly approach what is happening.
