Washington, United States
The United States recorded 1,199 deaths from coronovirus in the last 24 hours as the nation’s death cycle began to climb again, Johns Hopkins University showed on Tuesday.
The US tally number of daily deaths since June 10 did not exceed 1,000.
According to a Baltimore-based institution at 8:30 pm (0030 GMP Wednesday), a total of 127,322 people have died in the country.
The US reported 42,528 new cases of coronovirus in the last 24 hours.
Due to the death toll and increasing case numbers, many US states, particularly in the South and West, have had to stop their reopening procedures.
The state of Texas broke its daily record on Tuesday, with 6,975 new cases of COVID-19.
Meanwhile, in California, more than a thousand inmates have tested positive for coronavirus in San Quentin, the state’s oldest prison, according to local authorities.
“Obviously we are not completely in control right now,” said infectious disease specialist Anthony Fauci, a prominent member of President Donald Trump’s coronovirus task force.
He reported that new coronovirus cases could double to more than 100,000 per day if authorities and the public failed to take steps to suppress the epidemic.
Like other senior US tally officials, Fauci called on Americans, especially young people, to cover their faces and avoid the crowds to escape.
