Almost 50,000 Coronavirus cases in America in 24 hours
America reported the highest number of New Coronavirus cases in 24 hours, on Friday – more than 40,800. Over the past two weeks, the number of Coronavirus cases in America, on an average, has seen an increase by 60%. Mostly, there has been a spike in the number of Coronavirus disease cases in the United States of America, in the west and the south of the country.
Donald Trump, the President of America, has called the virus an “invincible enemy”. At a West Point Graduation Ceremony, at the 2020 US Military Academy, he said:
“The depth and breadth of the US Military’s contributions to our society are an everlasting inspiration to us all. I want to take this opportunity to thank all members of America’s Armed Forces in every branch – active duty, National Guard, and reserve – who stepped forward to help battle the invisible enemy – the new virus that came to our shores from a distant land called China.”
United States Vice President, Mike Pence has said that 16 states in America have seen a spike of Coronavirus cases. He stated:
“As we see the new cases rising, and we’re tracking them very carefully, there may be a tendency among the American people to think that we are back to that place that we were two months ago, that we’re in a time of great losses and great hardship on the American people. The reality is we’re in a much better place.”
The United States Vice President, added:
“We still have work to do, so we say to every American particularly those in counties and in states that are being impacted by rising cases, now is the time for everybody to do their part.”
On Tuesday, America had reported 34,700 New Coronavirus cases in 24 hours. Dr. Anthony Fauci, National Institutes of Health Infectious Disease Chief, earlier on Tuesday, had said:
“Plan A, don’t go in a crowd. Plan B, if you do, make sure you wear a mask.”
At the time of writing this, there are around 2,554,000 cases and 128,000 deaths in America, because of Coronavirus.
