COVID-19: US deaths top 110,000 as cases approach 2 million

WASHINGTON (HRNW) – The novel coronavirus has killed more than 110,000 people in the United States,  as nationwide protests against racial injustice spark fears of a resurgence of the virus.

About 1,000 Americans have died on average each day so far in June, down from a peak of 2,000 a day in April, according to the tally of state and county data on COVID-19 deaths.

Total US coronavirus cases are approaching 2 million, the highest in the world followed by Brazil with about 672,000 cases and Russia with about 467,000.

Several southern US states reported sharp increases in COVID-19 infections, with Alabama, South Carolina and Virginia all seeing new cases rise 35 per cent or more in the week ended May 31 compared with the prior week, according to a Reuters analysis.
