Johns Hopkins University reported that the number of new infections in the Corona virus in the United States for the second day in a row exceeded the threshold of 40 thousand cases.

The rate of new coronavirus infections in the United States has increased continuously in the recent period, after falling for more than six weeks, with a number of states recording record jumps in the number of people recently infected.
