Andrew Como, Governor of New York State, announced that 779 deaths had been recorded in the past 24 hours.
This brings the number of deaths due to infection with the Coronavirus in the United States to 13,000, and infections to 400,000 confirmed cases.
Yesterday, Tuesday, the governor of New York State said that the state recorded the highest death rate in one day from the emerging corona virus, 731 deaths, bringing the total number to 5,489.
The United States is the first country in the world in terms of the number of reported cases of the epidemic, and it has been recording a daily death toll of more than a thousand days ago, which means that it may soon surpass Spain (13,798 deaths) and perhaps catch up with Italy, which currently tops the number of deaths due to Covid 19 in the world with a total of 17,127 deaths.
The virus has so far spread to 209 countries and regions around the world, and although China is the epicenter of the outbreak, but it has effectively controlled its spread, and it no longer has any significant infections, and the deaths have not crossed the 3331 infection mark.
The epidemic forced many countries of the world, led by large countries with their capabilities and population, to take exceptional measures, which varied from flight bans to declaring curfews and isolating entire regions, and even closing places of worship, to prevent the spread of the deadly infection.
