In the United States, 2228 people have died of covid-19 (coronavirus) in the last 24 hours, the highest one-day balance recorded worldwide. Referring to data from Johns Hopkins University, it was written by AFP. The US is the worst affected country in the world in terms of both the number of people infected and those who die. Today’s sad record fell after two days of decline in the increase in deaths.
The daily number of victims exceeded the limit of two thousand in the US only for the second time, in other countries it has not yet been exceeded. On Monday, the daily increase was 1514 deaths, the previous 24-hour balance was 1920 victims, preceded by a balance of 2108 deaths per day.
Therefore, the new data is a partial disappointment in the hope that the coronavirus pandemic in the US subsides once it has peaked.
In the United States, more than 605,000 people have shown coronavirus, of which at least 25,757 have died. Reuters warned Tuesday that the number of deaths has doubled in one week and the number of infections in the country is more than three times higher than in any other state.
New York City, one of the worst hit areas in the US, has added more than 3,700 covid-19 victims to its death statistics today. This is an estimate of the number of people who have succumbed to the infection but have never been tested for coronavirus. The total number of victims there exceeded the limit of 10 000. In terms of population, more people died in the city than in Italy, which has the most coronavirus deaths in Europe.
