The United States has now the highest number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the world.
At more than 82 000, it has now surpassed China, where the outbreak began. In a press conference yesterday, US president Donald Trump said he was considering partially lifting the lockdown restrictions, a bid to try and help the country’s economy which has started to slow down.
By Thursday, Italy still recorded the highest number of fatalities at over 8 000. It is now followed by Spain which has more than 4 300 deaths.
