As for the percentage of deaths distributed among the states, New York State ranked first, recording almost a third of the virus deaths across the country.
According to a measure developed by researchers at the University of Massachusetts, based on nine epidemiological models, the United States is expected to record 113,000 deaths of the “Covid-19” epidemic by June 13 next year. This study, published yesterday, in conjunction with the states’ adoption of several measures to reopen their economies, therefore expects about 22,000 additional Americans to die from the Corona virus within 25 days.
And again, US President Donald Trump attacked today, Wednesday, China, saying that its “inefficiency” in managing the Corona crisis had caused the “killing” of a large number of people in the world. Trump wrote in a tweet: “A fool in China published a statement accusing everyone, with the exception of China, of spreading the epidemic that claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people … ! ».
Trump has been stressing for several weeks that the heavy toll of “Covid 19” could have been avoided had China acted responsibly since the virus first appeared in Wuhan.
A week ago, he threatened to cut off all relations with Beijing, and confirmed that he does not wish at this time to talk to his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping.
The “Seven” summit at Camp David
The US President indicated that the G-7 summit could be held in June at Camp David, and not via videoconference as planned due to the Corona outbreak.
Trump said on Twitter: “Now that our nation has started to return to greatness, I intend to reprogram the G-7 summit on almost the same date, but in Camp David the historical place (…) That would be a great symbol for everyone. Things are back to normal! ”
