In the United States, more than 1,500 people died from a coronavirus infection in a 24-hour period, according to a count from Johns Hopkins University on Monday evening (local time). As a result, coronavirus deaths in the U.S. rose to more than 23,500, according to the University of Baltimore.
The United States is now the country most affected by the coronavirus pandemic. According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 550,000 people are infected with the novel pathogen Sars-Cov-2. The very high number of infections in international comparison is also due to the fact that a lot of testing is carried out in the USA.
The center of the pandemic in the United States is the state of New York, where more than 10,000 people have already died from the coronavirus-induced lung disease Covid-19. New York governor Andrew Cuomo believes the state has the worst behind it. It was time to think about a slow return to normality, Cuomo said on Monday. However, he also warned that the containment measures would be loosened prematurely.
