The World Health Organization (WHO) says the United States could become the next global center for the Corona virus outbreak.
In Geneva, WHO spokesman Margaret Harris told reporters that the number of victims of the Corona virus 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.
