The World Health Organization (WHO) says the United States could become the next global center for the Coronavirus outbreak.
In Geneva, WHO spokesman Margaret Harris told reporters that the number of victims of the Coronavirus in the United States is increasing rapidly, according to a foreign news agency 'Reuters'.
Responding to a question about the US becoming the new global epidemic, he said, "We are seeing that cases are increasing very rapidly in the United States so it is likely to become a global epidemic."
On the other hand, some US state and local authorities have lamented the lack of coordination in the federal government's actions, saying that local laws have made them competitive in the supply of goods.
US President Donald Trump also acknowledged the problem.
"The global market for facial masks and ventilators is very crazy right now, we are cooperating with the states to supply the equipment but it is not easy," he said in a tweet on the social networking site.
More than 42,000 people have been affected and 559 killed by the Coronavirus in the United States.
Over the past twenty-four hours, 85% of Coronavirus cases have occurred in the United States and Europe, of which about 40% were in the United States.
In the United Kingdom on Tuesday, the Coronavirus caused the highest number of casualties in a single day.
According to a foreign news agency 'Reuters', the British Ministry of Health said on Tuesday that the Coronavirus killed 87 people, bringing the total death toll to 422 in the country.
The number of cases reported in the UK increased by 21% in a single day, after which the number has increased from 6,650 to 8,777.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced the lockdown in the country yesterday and urged people to stay in their homes.
Addressing the nation via television, he said that all shops were being closed immediately and people would not be able to meet their loved ones, while violators would be fined.
