According to reports from the United States, more information has come to light about the early days of the coronavirus pandemic. A new study reveals COVID-19 was likely already in the United States in mid-December of 2019, weeks before it was first identified in China.
This new information comes as the U.S. death toll from the virus has topped 270,000 -- by far the highest total in the world.
