New York has become the epicentre of the COVID-19 outbreak in the US, which itself has reported more than double the amount of cases than any other state.

The mayor of New York City Bill de Blasio has warned that the city does not have sufficient medical supplies to cope with the expected surge in the number of critically ill patients in the coming weeks and months.

A Russian military cargo plane landed in the US on Thursday loaded with medical supplies to combat the disease. US President Donald Trump said that the supplies were of “very high quality.”
