According to the site worldometers.info among more than 215 thousand cases of coronavirus recorded in the U.S., 83 901 (including 7 918 yesterday) were identified in the state of new York. In China, this figure is 81 554. The population of new York is about 20 million people, and in China it exceeds 1.4 billion.
it is Worth noting that until recently, China was not included in the statistics for the coronavirus of patients who have not manifested symptoms of the disease. Only yesterday, the Chinese government changed this decision. On the one hand, it was a reaction to public concern, on the other – due to the fact that such media in the country were considered more dangerous than before.
