WASHINGTON: The United States on Thursday surpassed both China and Italy with the most coronavirus infections.

More than 85,500 cases of the novel coronavirus were reported in the U.S. as of Thursday evening, according to Johns Hopkins University stats.

A World Health Organization official warned Tuesday that the U.S. could become the new epicentre of the virus after Italy and China.

With 330 million residents, the United States is the world’s third most populous nation and it recorded more than 1,000 deaths at an alarming rate.

New York City remains the epicentre of the virus in the United States where cases have now topped 30,000.

Meanwhile, Canada slammed a US proposal to deploy troops on their joint border to help fight the virus – the deputy prime minister said it would be “damaging to our relationship”.
