Statistical data confirmed that during the past day, the United States witnessed 3176 new deaths caused by the emerging coronavirus “Covid-19”, which represents one of the largest leaps in the death toll from the epidemic in the country.
This was reported today, Friday, by Agence France-Presse, based on data from Johns Hopkins University, which launched a project to monitor Corona’s outbreak in the world.
This brings the number of people who died in the United States after contracting the coronavirus to 49,759, according to the agency, but the latest university data shows that this toll has witnessed since the publication of the news a new rise and has reached 49,963 deaths so far.
These numbers represent the third largest daily increase in death toll since the outbreak of the Corona in the United States.
The records for Thursday and Friday of last week, 4,591 and 3,856 deaths, respectively, but those numbers likely included assumptions not yet counted.
The United States leads by a huge margin the list of the countries most affected by the virus in terms of the number of infections and deaths, and there were recorded in general more than 869 thousand cases of the epidemic, and the real outcome may be much greater due to the lack of checks.
Despite these alarming numbers, some US states, such as Georgia and Texas, are preparing to ease restrictions to limit the spread of the virus and reopen some projects.
