US: Record Numbers of Corona Deaths and Infections Last 24 Hours

0 29,689

The United States again reported record numbers of corona deaths and infections in the last 24 hours on Wednesday.

 

More than 3,700 people succumbed to the lung virus in the past 24 hours, which was detected in about 250,000 people in the same 24 hours.

This means that the peak of the pandemic in the United States, as in many other countries, continues for the time being. Some 113,000 Covid patients are currently in hospitals across the country.

This week, the country started administering the first vaccinations against the coronavirus. Moncef Slaoui, one of the key advisers to the US vaccination campaign, said on Sunday that some 100 million Americans should have been vaccinated by the end of March.

In the US, there has been much criticism of the way the Trump administration has dealt with the epidemic. Trump himself has admitted that he deliberately downplayed the seriousness of the virus outbreak, and for a long time refused to wear a face mask in public, for example.

The outgoing president also sees nothing in lockdown measures because of the economic damage.
