The US has bypassed China in the number of patients 

In total, more than half a million cases of coronavirus have been reported in 202 countries around the world, with countries first overtaking China in the number of patients. The last day has been toughest in New York: 140 new people have died in the country, of which 13 are in only one hospital in Queens, the epicenter of the outbreak, and the United States has already bypassed China in the number of patients. 

A refrigerated truck was placed outside the hospital, which no longer has room for the bodies and doctors have to choose who to treat and who not. Many patients are already dying of intensive care, even before they can get a bed in the coronavirus wing. New York medical personnel are required to continue working until they have symptoms of the disease because there is not enough manpower. The New York health system, which is considered very good, also fails to keep up.
