Over 100,000 Americans have now died of the coronavirus

Meanwhile, there have been more than 5.5 million coronavirus cases and over 350,000 deaths worldwide.

"We are particularly concerned that the number of new cases reported last week in Brazil was the highest for a seven-day period, since the outbreak began", said Carissa Etienne, director of the Washington-based Pan American Health Organisation.

Some hard-hit states like NY are seeing a drop in death rates, but 20 states reported a rise in new cases for the week ending on Sunday, according to a Reuters study. Europe has recorded about 170,000 deaths, while the US reached more than 100,000 in less than four months. At the peak, hundreds of people were dying per day in New York City, and hospitals, ambulances and first responders were inundated with patients.

Following the United States in the total number of COVID-19 deaths is the United Kingdom with 37,000 deaths.

Early on, President Donald Trump downplayed the severity of the coronavirus and called it no worse than the common flu. Back in February he said the U.S. had the virus "under control" and that by April it could "miraculously go away".

"As we recover from the pandemic, a lot of young people are simply going to be left behind". "But if you look at what original projections were, 2.2 million, we are probably heading to 60,000, to 70,000".

Only half of Americans said they would be willing to get vaccinated if scientists are successful in developing a vaccine, according to a poll released Wednesday from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

NY - the epicenter of the nation's crisis - saw new hospitalizations for the virus drop this week to the lowest level since the state started to track the pandemic.

Trump's principal preoccupation has been for a quick turnaround of the badly battered U.S. economy, and he has pressured local and state leaders to ease lockdowns.

Since the start of the pandemic, 125 different vaccines have begun preclinical evaluations with 10 now approved to begin human trials.

Comparing how the virus has impacted different countries is tricky, given varying levels of testing and the fact that some coronavirus deaths can be missed.

USA deaths from the novel coronavirus topped 100,000 on Wednesday even as the daily average death toll declines, businesses reopen and Americans emerge from lockdowns across the country.

Trump issued an executive order in late January blocking entry to the United States from anyone who had been in China in the previous 14 days.
