US COVID-19 death toll rises to more than 100,000

A security guard stands next to a banner

There has been 1.69million cases in the United States and despite the growing numbers of deaths, Donald Trump has insisted on easing lockdown and reopening the country.

The World Health Organization has declared coronavirus a global pandemic.

The confirmed number of fatalities from Covid-19 around the world now stands at 354,944, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

Since then, more Americans have been lost to the coronavirus than deaths from the Vietnam and Korean wars combined.

According to the CDC, racial and ethnic minorities have experienced a disproportionate share of COVID-19 deaths.

Brazil has 375,000 coronavirus infections - second only to the 1.6 million cases in the USA - and has counted over 23,000 deaths. That country has since recorded 269 deaths from coronavirus.

Currently, there is no vaccine for Covid-19. Back in February he said the U.S. had the virus "under control" and that by April it could "miraculously go away". Ten days later he said, "We're going toward 50 [, 000] or 60,000 people". In the United States, President Donald Trump has declared a national emergency.

US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi paused during a news conference to note the staggering toll of the "villainous virus", even as states cautiously re-open their shuttered, devastated economies. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia and death. Among Americans who say they wouldn't get vaccinated, seven in 10 worry about safety.

That test can be failed if owners were thought to be in violation of United Kingdom law, even if it was committed overseas . It all comes down to illegal pirating of the league's television coverage in Saudi Arabia through a company called beoutQ.

COVID-19, named because it's a new type of coronavirus first seen in 2019, comes from a family of viruses responsible for the common cold, SARS, MERS and other ailments. However, the coronavirus has been seen attacking in far stealthier ways - from blood clots to heart and kidney damage. There is also no confirmed treatment for the disease, but there are several being tested. With regional infection rates varying from about 5-20%, most experts believe the virus will continue to churn through the U.S. population until the overall rate of infection is 50-60% - or until a vaccine is widely administered.

"Despite the bad losses seen and the many difficulties Americans have faced to date in this pandemic, we're still probably only in the early stages", said Michaud. "So we're definitely not out of the woods yet".

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.

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.

"The experience of other countries shows that death at that scale was preventable", Michaud said.

"Whatever the final death toll is in the United States, the cost of waiting will be enormous, a tragic outcome of the exponential spread of the virus early in the epidemic", the two wrote. "That's 15 to 20 times more than we will lose".

"So, yeah, we've lost a lot of people", he said during a press briefing in the Rose Garden on April 29.

The East Coast remains the hardest hit by COVID-19.
