Harris also conceded that the U.S. has the potential to be the new epicenter given a "very large acceleration" in cases.

WHO's dashboard on its website, which tends to log countries' individual tallies, showed that Monday had by far the biggest daily rise in infections since the outbreak began in December, with more than 40,000 new cases.

World Health Organization spokesperson Margaret Harris informed the worldwide media that 85 percent of the previous day's new confirmed cases of Covid-19, were in the United States or Europe. She added that the USA has a "very large outbreak and an outbreak that is increasing in intensity". USA Forty percent of that total was attributable to new cases in the United States.

When broken down along partisan lines, Trump's performance was rated significantly better among Republicans (89 percent) and independents (48 percent) than Democrats, only 19 percent of whom thought the president was doing a good job. But, if people living in the United States will not follow the guidelines set by President Trump's administration, CDC, and health experts then it is not a surprise anymore that the USA will become the new epicenter.

Addressing a press conference, World Health Organization spokesperson said that though Europe is still the epicentre of coronavirus outbrealk but the U.S. has registered a huge spike in coronavirus cases in the last few days. "We are helping the states to get equipment, but it is not easy", he wrote in a tweet.

Britain on Tuesday began curbs on movement without precedent in peacetime after PM Boris Johnson ordered everyone to stay at home.

Jerome Salomon told reporters that 22,300 people had tested positive for the virus in France, with a total of 10,176 hospitalised of whom 2,516 people are in intensive care. These numbers likely don't include the new cases reported Monday.

While China experienced only 146 new cases of coronavirus with seven deaths on Tuesday, Italy saw 4,789 new cases with 601 deaths.

The death rate of a disease is different from its mortality rate - the latter is the number of deaths out of the number of people in an at-risk population.

"Each individual infecting two to three other people takes about three to five days, so we're seeing what happened three or four days ago, or five days ago in many countries", Harris explained.

With the numbers still spiralling, the government of Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez on Tuesday sought parliamentary approval to extend the state of emergency for an extra two weeks, until April 11 - the day before Easter - in a bid to slow the spread of the virus.
