Johns Hopkins University has announced that the United States recorded about 53,069 new infections with the new Corona virus during the past 24 hours, a record number since the start of the epidemic, taking the total number of Covid-19 infections in the United States to more than 2.7 million.
The country also reported 649 HIV deaths within 24 hours, taking the total Coffid-19 deaths in the United States to 128,677.
The number of newly discovered infections in the United States is higher than ever since the outbreak of the epidemic. The number of cases requiring hospitalization is increasing in a number of epidemic hotspots, as is the case in Houston (Texas) and Phoenix (Arizona).
Texas recorded about eight thousand new cases of Covid-19, prompting Republican Governor Greg Abbott, supporter of President Donald Trump, to impose respirators to become mandatory in public places in this southern state.
