Worldwide, New York has reported more coronavirus cases than any other country. It has recorded 1,81,026 cases which are higher than Spain’s cases (1,61,852) and Italy’s cases (1,52,21) as of April 11. Since the novel coronavirus spreads easily in regions that have higher population density and New York has 8 million people, the spread does not come as a shock. Also, the reason for more cases being detected in this region is widely speculated to be extensive testing.
