Nearly 11,000 people died from Covid-19 in the US

(Dan Tri) – In just 6 weeks, the number of deaths from Covid-19 has increased from 0 to nearly 11,000 cases, while the peak of the epidemic is expected to occur this week or next week.

The number of deaths and cases of Covid-19 in the US is increasing rapidly.

According to data on the Worldometer website, as of the afternoon of April 6 local time, the US recorded 10,859 deaths due to Covid-19, an increase of more than 1,200 cases compared to the previous day.

Many medical experts and US officials believe that this week may be the `most painful week` and that more people will die from Covid-19 in this country.

“This will be the week when the number of people hospitalized will peak, the number of people requiring intensive treatment will peak, and unfortunately it will also be the week when the number of deaths will peak,” said Brett Giroir, a physician and member of the steering committee.

He said that New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Connecticut and the city of Detroit will likely be the hardest hit places.

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio said the city’s biggest challenge is the lack of medical staff and medical equipment, especially ventilators.

New York City has so far recorded more than 3,100 deaths from Covid-19, the local government is considering a plan to temporarily bury the dead in a park, said Mark Levine, chairman of the Society’s health committee.

New York started showing positive signals

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said that the number of deaths from Covid-19 in this state has remained stable for the second consecutive day.

`Although this is not necessarily good news, the graph going sideways is better than going up,` Mr. Cuomo said at yesterday’s press conference when referring to the graph of the number of deaths from Covid-19 in New York.

Mr. Cuomo yesterday decided to extend the order restricting travel, closing schools and non-essential businesses until April 29.

In New Jersey, the state with the second highest number of cases and deaths in the US, Governor Phil Murphy also said that the state has begun to record positive signs as the rate of increase in infected people slows down.
