A record number of infected COVID-19 recorded in the United States for a day.
The number of cases of infection with a new type of coronavirus increased in the United States for a day by a record of 63.2 thousand. This is evidenced in the data published on Friday by Johns Hopkins University, which conducts calculations based on information from Federal and local authorities.
According to him, 990 deaths were recorded in the country over the past day. A day earlier, 58.6 thousand cases of infection were detected in the United States, and 820 people died.
In recent weeks, several American states, including Florida, Arizona, Texas, and California, have seen a rapid spread of the coronavirus. In this regard, the local authorities have suspended the process of easing or lifting sanitary restrictions that were started earlier.
The United States leads the world in terms of both the number of people infected with coronavirus-more than 3.11 million people and the number of deaths-133.2 thousand. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 12.2 million people have been affected in the world, and about 555 thousand have died.
