Hanima Anand |Mar 27, 2020

Early morning on March 27, the United States officially records the highest number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the world, surpassing the figure of China.

Within one day, the number of cases positive with coronavirus in the US had piled up, adding up to 81,836 cases nationwide, which is far higher than Italy and finally exceeds the seemingly insurmountable figure of China (81,782 cases).

Coronavirus In Us
The US reports the highest number of coronavirus confirmed cases in the world.

Only yesterday, at least 237 more deaths of Covid-19 were recorded. The total number of deaths in the US reaches 1,186 while the actual data may be higher, according to authorities.

Meanwhile, half of reported cases are in New York, putting enormous burden on the healthcare system of this city. A lot of hospital workers are exhausted, resorting to desperate measures to fight against the virus.

A nurse inside a New York hospital shared on her social account:

“I haven’t slept because my mind won’t shut off. I cried in the bathroom on my break, as I peeled off the PPE from my sweaty self, mask indentations on my face. I cried the entire ride home.”

Confirmed Cases In Us
Lack of equipment and healthcare centers is problem of many countries now.

Not just crying for exhaustion, hospital workers also cry for their patients whose eyes are filled with fear, for those who died of this deadly virus, for their families who now stand higher risk of infection and for their co-workers who are also desperate like themselves.

Besides New York, Washington D.C and California are also two hot spots with increasing number of confirmed cases. Other regions as Michigan and Illinois are also predicted to be the next epicenters of Covid-19 which are raging the most developed country in the world.

Donald Trump Xi Jinping
Donald Trump and Xi Jinping will have discussion today on the problem of coronavirus spread.

What makes matter worse is the shortage of healthcare facilities and equipment. US hasn’t seen its peak yet, but they already foresee the lack of resources to save lives of severe conditions, let alone taking care of those with medium-level symptoms.

To deal with the pandemic, US President Donald Trump will have an online discussion with Ji Xinping from China to exchange measures in halting the spread of coronavirus.
