U.S. Now Enters into Toughest Week as COVID-19 Deaths Rise

New York, the epicenter of the U.S. coronavirus pandemic, reported Sunday that for the first time in per week, deaths had fallen slightly from the day earlier than. However, there have been still practically 600 new fatalities and over 7,300 new circumstances in the state.

Louisiana has turned into a hot spot for the virus, reporting a jump in deaths to just about 500 and over 13,000 cases.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said Sunday that new hospitalizations had fallen by 50% over the earlier 24 hours. He warned that it was not yet clear whether or not the disaster was reaching a plateau in the state, which has a total of 4,159 deaths and more than 122,000 instances, by far the most of any U.S. state.

Nationwide, cases of the respiratory disease topped 336,000, while the death count stood at 9,573.

Cuomo stated that after the peak of the epidemic passed, a mass rollout of fast testing would be important to help the nation “return to normalcy.”

President Donald Trump said the nation faced a “great hour of grief,” but expressed hope that deaths might be “leveling off” in New York.
