This is what coronavirus panic looks like. Tonight at LA's Dodger Stadium they're not going to the baseball anymore they're lining up for hours to get tested. 252,651 in U.S. dead so far. President Trump said it will go away "like a miracle." pic.twitter.com/LyRqcbqS4T

As the United States continues to break new coronavirus records, images taken in America’s most populated county show the jaw-dropping impact of the virus gripping the nation.
Los Angeles County, which is home to 10 million residents, has seen daily confirmed cases more than double in the last two weeks to nearly 2900.
Hospitalisations have topped 1100 – a rise of 30 per cent in that period.
Incredible scenes taken at the city’s famous Dodger Stadium show thousands of cars queuing – not for a baseball game but for Covid tests at a makeshift clinic.
