The United States reached this Thursday the number of 7,598,280 confirmed cases of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and 212,632 deaths from the disease of the COVID-19, according to the independent count from Johns Hopkins University.

This balance at 20:00 local time (00:00 GMT on Friday) is 53,668 infections more than on Wednesday and 938 new deaths. Although New York is no longer the state with the highest number of infections, it does continue as the worst hit in terms of deaths in the United States with 33,227, more than in Peru, Spain or France.

States most affected

In New York City alone, 23,874 people have died. New York is followed in number of deceased Texas (16,743), California (16,393), New Jersey (16,161) and Florida (15,068).

Other states with a large death toll include Massachusetts (9,565), Illinois (9,159), Pennsylvania (8,268), Georgia (7,294) or Michigan (7,193). In terms of infections, California has 843,648, followed by Texas with 807,440, third is Florida with 726,013 and New York is fourth with 470,104.

Inaccurate projections

He balance provisional of deaths -212,632 – far exceeds the lowest level of the initial estimates of the White House, which in the best of cases projected between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths from the pandemic.

The American President, Donald Trump, lowered those estimates and was confident that the final figure would be between 50,000 and 60,000 deaths, although later he predicted up to 110,000 deaths, a number that has also been exceeded.
