The United States has recorded over 18 million cases of coronavirus, and more than 3 million of those have been linked to coronaviruses in people who had previously had no exposure to a previously-infected person.
But the US also has been hit hard by a surge in new cases that have hit the nation hard.
The new cases are also prompting fears that the US could see more cases from a virus that has never been found in the country before, with experts warning that the new cases could cause even more health problems.
This is a developing story and will be updated as new information becomes available.
