USA Now Has the Highest Number of Coronavirus Cases

"Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all". Ps. 34:19

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the United States reached 100,040 on Friday 26 March 2020, the highest number in the world, according to a Reuters tally. The count has also showed that at least 1,546 have died of the illness across the United States, with the largest numbers so far in Washington state and New York. Italy is second with 86,498 cases and China is third with 81,340 confirmed cases, according to the tally. An all-time high of 3.3 million people filed for unemployment in the USA last week, up from the previous high of 695,000 jobless claims. The spread of the novel coronavirus has forced businesses around the country to shut down and lay off personnel. Commenting on the unemployment numbers last week President Donald Trump said the sharp rise in unemployment claims was “fully expected” and predicted the economy would quickly rebound once the United States overcomes the coronavirus outbreak. Over the weekend, the US House of Representatives passed a historic $2 trillion coronavirus relief package, which the USA president has signed. (VFI News)
