(Reuters) – According to a Reuters balance sheet, the United States recorded more than 1,000 COVID-19 deaths on Friday for the fourth time in a row when the Trump administration stressed that children must return to the classroom despite fears of security.
In early June, the United States last recorded four consecutive days of over 1,000 deaths a day due to the effects of infection in April. The recent outbreak increased the number of cases in early June and increased approximately six weeks later.
To date, 19 U.S. states have broken a daily record for the increase in COVID-19 deaths in July, according to Reuters. Texas lost a record 206 lives on Wednesday, Florida had a record 173 deaths on Thursday, and California's record was 159 on Wednesday.
Deaths in the U.S. increased Friday by at least 1,019 to a total of 145,352, compared to an increase of 1,140 on Thursday, 1,135 on Wednesday and 1,141 on Tuesday. The total number of cases in the United States rose at least 68,800 on Friday to a total of over 4 million.
Although the number of deaths in the United States increases for the second time in a row, they remain well below the level in April when an average of 2,000 people died from the virus each day. The March and April outbreak devastated many nursing homes, while infections occurred among younger, healthier people this summer. Hospitals have also found better treatments, e.g. B. Lay the patient on his stomach and use the antiviral drug Remdesivir.
Among the 20 countries with the largest outbreaks, the United States ranks seventh in the world for deaths per capita, according to Reuters analysis.
