In 21 hours, the country recorded nearly 73 800 new cases of COVID – 11 (73 145 the day before) and lamented more of 1150 additional deaths (1225 the day before), according to the university, which updates its figures continuously.
The total number of infections diagnosed on American soil since the start of the pandemic is 4.1 million (including 1, 24 million people declared cured).
The United States, which is by far the most affected country in the world in absolute terms, deplores a total of more than 145 00 0 COVID-related deaths – 19.
After improving at the end of spring, the epidemic has experienced a sharp upsurge since the end of June, especially in the heavily populated states in the south and west of the country such as Texas, Florida and California.
For 11 days, the level of new infections detected each 24 hours did not pass below the 30 00 0.
And the death curve has also started to rise, with a delay of a few weeks. The scientific consensus is that the wave of deaths follows that of infections by three or four weeks.
After regularly falling below the 500 dead around the end of June, the daily reports exceeded 1000 daily deaths over the past three days.
