The United States has become the first country in the world to die from more than 2,000 coronavirus deaths in a single day. Johns Hopkins University figures show that 2,108 people have died in the past 24 hours while there are now more than half a million confirmed infections. The US could soon overtake Italy as the country with the highest number of coronavirus deaths worldwide. But experts from the White House's Covid-19 task force say the outbreak began in the U.S. Starting towards. D Deb. Deborah Birks said there were good signs that the epidemic was stabilizing, but warned: "As encouraging as they are, we have not reached an excellent level." President Donald Trump also said he expects the U.S. to The death toll will be lower than the initial forecast of 100,000 casualties, adding: "We are seeing clear signs that our offensive strategy is saving the lives of countless people."
The head of the World Health Organization warned that taking lockdown measures too early could lead to a "fatal resurgence" in the infection.

U.S. What are the last statistics?
There are at least 18,693 deaths and 500,399 confirmed cases in the U.S., according to Johns Hopkins, who is searching for the disease globally. About half of the deaths were reported in the New York area. The virus has killed 18,849 people in Italy and more than 102,000 globally. Researchers predicted that the death toll in the U.S. would peak on Friday and then slowly begin to decline, reaching about 970 people a day by May 1 - members of the Trump administration began as a possible date to restart the economy. Is. "I want to open it up as soon as possible," Mr. Trump said at a Good Friday briefing at the White House. "I will say without question the biggest decision I have ever made." However, no action will be taken until the government is notified, as long as they "make the country [healthy]", he said. "We don't want to go back and start doing it again."
The coronavirus has changed everything about life, and now it sticks to the rituals of death. New Yorkers are stunned by the horrific scenes: ambulances are constantly racing through the deserted streets, body bags are being dumped in refrigerated trucks outside hospitals and a new trench is being dug on Hearts Island for a possible mass burial. The remote cemetery, accessible only by boat, is a place that Tomb has historically regarded as a place of grief, because of its unmarked graves, only unclaimed corpses. The city’s morgues can only handle so much before a temporary burial for Covid-19 victims, once, in a fairly bad situation. Funeral directors talk about how frightened and frustrated the death toll leaves them. Earlier this week's death toll, some families had to wait a week or more to bury and bury their loved ones.
Why can an outbreak start to stop so soon?
The head of infectious diseases in the U.S., Dr. Anthony Fawcett agreed that the country was "starting to come down and down" in terms of cases and deaths. But despite the "significant advance", he added, mitigation efforts such as social distance should not be withdrawn yet. A new estimate by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at Washington University in Washington predicts that as of August, the death toll will rise to 20,000. Last month, Dr. Fawcett estimated at least 100,000 deaths. In the briefing, Dr. Burks noted that growth rates are stabilizing in hard-hit areas such as New York, New Jersey and the City of Chicago. She added that the U.S. mortality rate was "significantly lower than many other countries" when you update them for our population. But she insisted the nation was yet to see the peak of the eruption. "We need to continue to do what we did yesterday, and a week ago, and a week before that, because it will eventually, take us to the top and the other side down." On Friday, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said recent figures show the state is successfully squeezing the curve, but also warned that measures to ease social distance are too early to ease. "Even though it's a grind, even though it's difficult, we have to stick with it." The fear seems greatest for America's minority communities, disproportionately affected by Covid-19. Killed by the virus, which he thought was overdone I'm using my pizza oven to make masks for nurses Why some US churches are open this Easter Apple Pal and Google team prepare for coronavirus tracking U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams said the trend is "worrying, but not surprising" because minorities in the U.S. generally have more health conditions such as asthma, hypertension and diabetes. African-American Dr. “In fact, I’ve been carrying an inhaler in my pocket for 40 years for fear of having a fatal asthma attack,” Adams said.
But he caused controversy by urging minorities to stop drinking, smoking and taking drugs to reduce the risks. He was particularly critical of the use of colloquial language when he asked them to respect social distance guidelines. "Do it for your abella. Do it for your grandfather. Do it for your great-grandmother. Do it for your grandparents," said Dr. Adams. He later advised all Americans to abstain from alcohol, tobacco and drugs. In a briefing Friday, Mr. Trump also said he has seen drone images of coffins stacked in a mass grave on New York's Heart Island. Officials say the island, which has been used to bury people without kinship for more than 100 years, is now burying five times as much as normal. Earlier in the day, Dr. Fauki told CNN that officials are currently debating whether to adopt an immunity certificate for Americans who have survived the coronavirus safely and have antibodies in their blood to prove it. The certificate "may have some quality in some circumstances," he added, adding that antibody tests would be available next week. Meanwhile, legislators in Washington and Washington are considering "Covid-19 Heroes Fund" to pay workers directly in the front line of the epidemic. The Democratic-led proposal demands an hourly rate of 13 ((10) per hour on top of the salary already received by workers from their employer. Were
