In the U.S., a record of 3,157 deaths per day from complications caused by coronavirus infection has been broken. This is evidenced by data published by Johns Hopkins University.
It is noted that the previous highest rate in the U.S. was recorded back in April. The trend of mortality from COVID-19 is also observed in Brazil (almost 700 deaths per day), and in Mexico (800 deaths per day on average).
Earlier, on December 3, Democratic Party of the United States presidential candidate Joe Biden predicted the death of 250 thousand more Americans from COVID-19 by the end of the year. On November 30, U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar said that the first two coronavirus vaccines SARS-CoS-2 will be available to Americans in the coming weeks. He noted that vaccination could begin before Christmas.
The U.S. remains the country with the highest number of coronavirus infections in the world: nearly 14 million. Since the beginning of the pandemic, 1.5 million people have died in the world and 42 million are cured.
