The cumulative number of corona19 patients in the U.S. has exceeded 15 million.
Johns Hopkins University in the U.S. said the cumulative number of corona19 confirmed cases in the U.S. as of the 8th local time was 1,5019,000, of which there were 284,000 cumulative deaths.
In the United States, the number of new infected patients increased by 1 million five days after the cumulative number of corona 19 cases exceeded 14 million on the 3rd, setting a record of increasing 1 million patients in the shortest period.
In the United States, it took 98 days to exceed 1 million after the first corona 19 positive confirmed on January 20, but since then, the period of 1 million increase has been shortening.
In particular, the rate of increase is rapidly accelerating since the number of people increased by 1 million in 9 days after exceeding 10 million on November 8th.
With such a rapid increase in new patients, the average number of new infections per day for the last week was 201,000, exceeding the 200,000 mark for the first time.
In addition, the number of people who lost their lives from Corona 19 in the last week also reached an average of 2,200 people a day, the highest since April.
The cumulative number of corona19 cases in the U.S. is 22.1% of the world's cumulative confirmed cases, and the cumulative number of deaths is 18.4% of the world's cumulative deaths.
