The number of coronavirus deaths in the United States has exceeded 46,000 after a near-record increase in the number of deaths recorded in a day.
The forecasts of the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at Washington University, which the White House often relies on, indicated that the total death toll from Corona in the United States would reach 66,000 by August 4, a higher estimate than the previous estimate of 60,000.
And if deaths in America continue like this, the number may reach 50,000 later this week.
Meanwhile, California county health officials said after the autopsy of two corpses that the first deaths of the Corona virus in the United States occurred weeks earlier than previously thought. They added that the first deaths were on February 6, not February 29, and that the number of deaths in the following weeks escalated to be the highest in the world.
The number of deaths in the United States increased by 2792 to approach the highest number recorded in one day and was 2806 on April 15 and the decline in the number of deaths in New York State continued to be the epicenter of the disease outbreak in the United States, with 474 new deaths recorded.
But some neighboring states, such as Pennsylvania and New Jersey, recorded a record number of deaths in a single day.
Health officials say the deaths are a late indication of the outbreak, as they happen weeks after infection, and do not mean that the isolation measures of staying at home have not contributed to slowing the spread of the virus.
The United States has now become by far the highest number of confirmed cases of coronavirus in the world, with more than 815,000 infections, almost four times that of Spain, with the second highest number of infections.
The number of injuries in the United States increased by 25,000 to 810,000, representing one of the lowest increases to date in April.
