The State Of New York Has More COVID Cases Than Any Other 'Country'

There are some signs of the curve finally flattening but nothing is for sure as yet.

The global number of cases in the world is still shooting up and there seems to be no sign of a global downturn in the spread of the virus. At the time of writing, the total number of cases worldwide was 1,602,885 and the total number of deaths, globally, stood at 95,745, according to data from John Hopkins University. America, however, has been the most affected so far with almost one-third of the total global cases emerging from the country.

The state of New York, however, is having a really bad time fighting the virus and the data reveals that the state itself has more COVID cases than any other country in the world. The number of cases in the state stood at over 160,000. Spain, the country with the second-most number of cases, has a total of 153,222 cases while Italy comes third at 143,626 cases.

As reported by ABC News, more than 2,200 law-enforcement officers have also been affected but more than 500 of them have recovered and will return on active duty. On the positive side, the number of patients recovering from the disease is also increasing slowly but steadily. As more and more people are acknowledging the necessity of precautions, the number of cases is expected to go down in the coming days but nothing can be said with utmost certainty so far.
