US COVID-19 pandemic: New Jersey reports more than 18,000 cases

New Jersey's cases are ticking up rapidly, making it the second hardest-hit state - and hospitals can barely keep up.

    Hundreds of thousands of commuters from New Jersey cross over into New York every day, which is why there has been a corresponding rise in coronavirus cases there.
