The US is the world leader in new coronavirus infections, yet two states reported a decline this weekend, Rhode Island and Connecticut.
However, 36 states are still under a deadly threat of COVID-19, reporting terrifying numbers. Medical experts warn that Florida could be the next epicenter of the ongoing pandemic, that already compromised the health of 10 million people around the world.
The state of Florida has a staggering rise of infected cases in one day, counting 9,858, a number that compares to New York’s statistics from early April.
Florida officials warn that the virus is expected to spread among the young population in the months to come, so the game is far from over.
On Friday, 40,173 new infections were registered across the US in a single day, which is a new world record since the start of the global pandemic.
The total number of infected people in the US is 2,5 million, which is a devastating number compared to any other country in the world.
As COVID-19 spreads out of control, the European Union bans the entrance of US citizens on their territory.
According to Johns Hopkins University statistics, the total number of coronavirus deaths in the US is 125,539.
