In the United States, 503,177 cases have been reported, including 18,761, according to the most recent figures.
Most of the cases in the United States have been centered in and around the New York area.
“We’ve been watching a spread to the suburban communities around New York City, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, Rockland. That seems to have stabilized,” Cuomo said. “We have a couple of hot spots in Suffolk County that we’re watching but overall, we’ve been very aggressive in these suburban communities in jumping on those hot spots and the percentage of growth in upstate New York and the suburban areas around New York City has basically been stabilized and flat. So that’s good news, too.”
