USA News Update: - According to the count carried out by Johns Hopkins University, about 2,108 people lost their lives in the country in the last 24 hours, bringing the total number of deaths there to 18,777.
But it did not stop there: the North American country also approached half a million confirmed cases of covid-19, with 496,535, an increase of 35,098 in the last 24 hours.
The White House itself has previously admitted that the actual number of infections in the country could be between eight and ten times greater.
Given the paucity of tests the US health system has faced to detect positive cases, it is believed that the death toll could also be much higher than the official figure.

The dead and the economy

The announcement of the increase in victims came hours after President Donald Trump claimed that the infection curve in the country was "flattening."
The president also announced the creation of a new working group to focus on reopening the US economy.

Trump assured this Friday that the contagion curve was "flattening"

"We will announce it shortly. Probably on Tuesday," said the president during a daily briefing.
According to controversial initial White House estimates, 100,000 to 240,000 people in the United States could die of coronavirus.
However, this Friday Trump indicated that the projection had been reduced and that they expected that they would be less than 100,000.
