A massive pandemic has swept through the United States, affecting more than 3.3 million people and causing more than $400 billion in economic losses, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Monday.
The pandemic is believed to have started in late March in New York and New Jersey, where residents have been infected with coronavirus since the beginning of the year.
Officials said at least 5,400 new cases have been confirmed in the United Kingdom, including a British citizen who died from the virus in September.
In New York, officials said a second British man was hospitalized with severe symptoms and is in intensive care.
Officials are urging the public to be cautious about using mobile phones, laptops and other electronics, but are urging people to be vigilant about how they handle and store household items, such as bleach and soap.
In the United Arab Emirates, where coronaviruses are prevalent, the WHO said it is advising people to wash their hands and clothes after handling any household items.
Health experts say coronaviremia, which is a severe infection, is becoming increasingly common among children.
In recent weeks, more than 1,300 children have tested positive for coronaviral disease, including 1,900 who tested positive in New Jersey and another 1,200 in California.
They are believed to be infected with the coronavirozaidavirus, which has been circulating in the U.S. for the past several years and was identified in China.
The outbreak has also impacted the lives of families in the US.
A U.K. mother who has two daughters aged 7 and 12 who tested negative to coronavira in March died on Monday at a hospital in the UK, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) said.
The CDC said the UK has confirmed 1,600 new cases of the coronovirus, including 976 confirmed cases and 14 deaths.
It said another 14 children have been hospitalized.
The United States is currently seeing a surge in coronavirinavirus cases, with 1,846 reported cases, up from 912 reported cases in mid-March, according to the CDC.
The coronavioid vaccines were originally developed in the 1980s, but they have not been widely available in the USA since the mid-2000s.
Since then, the number of coronavaidavirovirus cases has been declining.
According to the WHO, there are 2.2 million confirmed cases of coronivirus worldwide.
