Coronavirus Deaths Are Rising Again in the US, As Feared
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Deaths per day from the coronavirus in the U.S. are on the rise again, just as health experts had feared, and cases are climbing in nearly every state.
That's despite assurances from President Donald Trump over the weekend that “we’re rounding the turn, we’re doing great.”
Average deaths per day across the country rose 10% over the past two weeks, from 721 to nearly 794 as of Sunday, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
Confirmed infections per day are rising in 47 states, and deaths are up in 34 states.
