The United States is currently the nation hit hardest by the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19), topping the global infection tally with more than 206,200 cases registered, according to the Johns Hopkins University count.

A Russian Air Force Antonov An124 carrying medical equipment to help fight the COVID-19 outbreak has landed at New York's JFK Airport at 4:06 pm (8:06 pm GMT), the Russian Mission to the United Nations told reporters on Wednesday.

Earlier, a senior US administration official said the United States was expecting Russia to deliver a planeload of personal protection equipment and medical supplies amid the coronavirus outbreak in the country.

The total number of COVID-19 cases in the US has reached 206,207, the death toll has risen to 4,542, the count by Johns Hopkins University shows. The US government expects these numbers to increase.
