Kevin Miller gives the latest on the nation's status on the virus. The United States now leads the world in coronavirus cases. That's according to data collected by The New York Times, which made the startling revelation Thursday. At least 81,321 cases have been confirmed in the U.S., where the virus has claimed the lives of more than 1,000 people, the data reveals. Those numbers top the coronavirus counts in even the hardest-hit countries like China and Italy. "Scientists warned that the United States someday would become the country hardest hit by the coronavirus pandemic," the Times reports. "That moment arrived on Thursday." When you first heard of the coronavirus outbreak in China, did you even think it would show up in the U.S.? Do you think this crisis will get worse before it starts getting better?
