NEW YORK (1010 WINS) -- The United States has nearly 82,000 coronavirus cases, more than China, the New York Times reported Thursday.
In fact, the 81,321 positive cases are more than Italy or any other country has seen.
When asked about the numbers at a Thursday afternoon coronavirus press briefing, President Donald Trump said he attributes the surge in numbers to testing. "It's a tribute to the amount of testing that we're doing. We're doing tremendous testing and I'm sure you're not able to tell what China's testing or not testing. That's a little hard."
New York has the most cases in the country at 37,258.
New Jersey is second at 6,876.
