Washington: According to statistics maintained by Johns Hopkins University, the United States recorded more than 70,000 new coronavirus cases and 1,000 deaths within 24 hours for the second consecutive day.
The Baltimore-based university’s real-time tracker shows that 73,795 new cases of COVID-19 have been registered in the worst-hit country in the world, and another 1,157 deaths.
As a result, 4.1 million people in the country were infected and 145,324 people died.
A total of 1.26 million people have recovered from this disease.
After the infection rate dropped in the late spring, the coronavirus surged in the United States, especially in southern and western states such as California, Texas, Alabama, and Florida.
In the past 11 days, the number of new cases reported every day has exceeded 60,000.
Scientists agree that as infections surge for three to four weeks, the mortality rate will rise.
After more than 500 people died every day at the end of June, the daily death toll for the past three days has exceeded 1,000.
