In the United States, 18,860 deaths from coronavirus were recorded. This is an anti-record; so far the sad first place was taken by Italy: 18,849 deaths.
In New York State, which is at the epicenter of the epidemic, the number of victims per day increased by 783 and reached 8627 people, said Governor Andrew Cuomo. However, the hospitalization curve is reaching a plateau, and fewer and fewer people are connected to the ventilator.
It was previously reported that the percentage of people infected with the coronavirus and who died from COVID-19 among the black population of the United States is disproportionately higher than among other groups. In Chicago, where a third of the population is African-American, there are exactly half of them who are ill. And the proportion of deaths exceeded 70 percent.
