Worldwide, the number of people infected with the coronavirus has exceeded 1 million, according to data from Johns Hopkins University. Interestingly, nearly a quarter of these people come from the US.
US: 240,000 coronavirus deaths?
The United States has grown to be the world’s “leader” in terms of the number of people infected with COVID-19 at a record rate. Nearly 245,000 people have already been diagnosed with the virus in this country. According to official data, there were several times fewer such infected people in China – nearly 83,000. At the same time, because of the coronavirus, nearly 6,000 people have already died in the United States, as many as 1,600 of them in New York alone. In the last day alone, the number of deaths exceeded 1,000 – in no other country in the world was the daily increase in the number of deaths so high in absolute numbers. So far, 53,200 people worldwide have died of coronavirus, according to John Hopkins University.
According to the forecasts of the White House, COVID-19 may cause as many as 240,000 deaths in the US, even while maintaining current restrictions.
Italy has already reached its peak?
The COVID-19 epidemic slowly seems to be under control in Italy. It’s the third most infected country in the world. There are over 115,000 infected there, according to John Hopkins University. The current number of infected people in the last 24 hours has increased by nearly 2,500 and the number of deaths by another 760. However, the number of people in intensive care has only increased by 18. This shows that the real increase in the number of infections has slowed down. At the same time, 1,400 thousand people recovered in the last 24 hours. However, very restrictive restrictions are still in force in this country, aimed at slowing down the development of the pandemic.
An upward trend is still observed in Poland. According to experts, in our country the peak incidence of the disease will occur about 2-3 weeks after Italy. Currently, 3 149 people are infected in Poland (as of 3 April morning). The number of deaths is 59. The last day the number of infected people increased by 392, which was the highest daily increase since the beginning of the epidemic.
