The American city of Miami in Florida has become the new epicenter of the spread of coronavirus, said infectious diseases expert Lillian Abbo. This is reported by Mediaite.
“What we observed in Wuhan five months ago, we are observing here now,” said Abbo.
Currently, 282,435 confirmed cases of new coronavirus infection have been detected in Florida, of which 24% are in Miami-Dade County, the expert said.
