CORONAVIRUS deaths in the US have passed 1,000 – with more than 200 fatalities recorded in a single day for the first time on Wednesday.
President Donald Trump said Wednesday the government is working to ensure hospitals and healthcare workers have the necessary medical supplies amid the pandemic – particularly in places with a high amount of cases.
“We’ve been spending a lot of time with New York officials because that is really by far the hottest spot,” Trump said at a Coronavirus Task Force briefing at the White House.
“They’ve got a couple of really tough weeks ahead of them,” he added.
New York rapidly became the U.S. epicenter for the virus, with the state seeing more than 30,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus.
