WASHINGTON | The coronavirus has killed 691 additional people in the United States over the past 24 hours, according to the balance sheet Sunday, of the Johns Hopkins university, in which reference is made.
This brings to 110 482 the total number of deaths due to the Covid-19 in the United States, where 1 938 842 cases have been identified.
These two national figures are the highest in the world. In contrast, per capita, several european countries are ahead of the United States in terms of the number of deaths, such as France, Italy or Spain.
At the height of the crisis, in mid-April, the United States had around 3 000 deaths per day. Now, this figure has fallen to around 1 000 deaths and 20 000 infections day-to-day.
President Donald Trump has assured Friday that the United States had “largely overcome” the crisis, and has again called on the governors to to reduce their States the restrictions linked to the fight against the epidemic.
But health workers are concerned about the events of magnitude that take place over a week across the country to protest against police brutality and racism. They may eventually lead to a rebound of contamination in the next few weeks.
