US tops 130,000 deaths from COVID-19 after record surge in cases


New York: On Monday, the number of new cases soared, plunging US President Donald Trump’s response to the crisis and derailing efforts to restart the economy. The number of Americans who died of coronavirus on Monday exceeded 13 Million.

Although the number of cases has soared to record levels in recent days, the overall growth rate of the total number of deaths in the United States has been declining, but health experts have warned that the number of deaths is a lagging indicator, even weeks after the number of cases has risen Displayed within a few months.

Nationwide, the number of cases is close to 3 million, the highest in the world, and double the infection rate reported by Brazil, the second most affected country. According to Reuters analysis, the number of cases in 39 US states is rising.

This month, 16 states released a record number of daily cases. Florida confirmed that the highest single-day record was 11,000, more than any European country on the day when the crisis was the worst.

As health experts cautioned the public not to gather in crowds to celebrate Independence Day over the weekend, U.S. President Donald Trump asserted without providing evidence that 99% of U.S. coronavirus cases were “totally harmless.”

Reuters analysis shows that at least five states have reversed the decline in national mortality. Arizona had 449 deaths in the last two weeks of June, which was higher than the 259 deaths in the first two weeks of the month. Cases in the state increased by 300% throughout the month, the most in the country.

Steve Adler, the mayor of the Democratic Party in Austin, Texas, criticized Republican Trump’s comments on the weekend on Monday, saying the virus was mostly harmless.

“It s incredibly disruptive and the messaging coming from the president of the United States is dangerous,” Adler told CNN. “One of the biggest challenges we have is the messaging coming out of Washington that would suggest that masks don t work or it s not necessary, or that the virus is going away on its own.”

The soaring number of cases in Texas and hospitals packed with hospitals have prompted some mayors and other local leaders to consider initiating a new round of home orders. Adler said the cities are getting together and lobbying the governor to restore power to implement local anti-coronavirus measures.

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows defended Trump’s speech on the weekend, saying the president did not try to downplay the death toll.

“But it s really to look statistically to know that whatever risks that you may have or I may have, or my, my children or my grandchildren may have, let s look at that appropriately and I think that s what he s trying to do,” he told reporters outside the White House.

According to 24 independent forecasts, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that by July 25, the death of coronavirus will be between 140,000 and 160,000.
