As coronavirus cases surge worldwide, US President Donald Trump said his administration has done an “incredible job” preventing the spread of Covid-19 in the country. A US health official from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has meanwhile warned it is not a question of “if” but rather “when” America will face a community spread of the virus. California has been monitoring 8,400 people for signs of infection after it reported a coronavirus case of unknown origin, potentially the first instance of community transmission in the US. Washington state has reported 2 deaths from the coronavirus, and New York has reported its first case. The US has 88 reported cases as of March 2.
