The United States reached the figure of 8,208,093 confirmed cases of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus and 220,086 deaths for covid-19 disease, according to the independent count from Johns Hopkins University.
This balance at 20:00 local time (00:00 GMT on Tuesday) is 60,506 infections more than on Sunday and 420 new deaths.
Although New York is no longer the state with the highest number of infectionsYes, it continues as the worst hit in terms of deaths in the United States with 33,366. In New York City alone, 23,944 people have died.
New York is followed in the number of deaths by Texas (17,481), California (16,979), New Jersey (16,214) and Florida (16,021).
Other states with a large death toll include Massachusetts (9.753), Illinois (9.496), Pensilvania (8.475), Georgia (7.657) o Michigan (7.363).
In terms of infections, California has 877,993, followed by Texas with 856,519, third is Florida with 756,727 and New York is fourth with 485,279.
The provisional death toll -220,086- far exceeds the lowest level of the initial estimates of the White House, which projected at best between 100,000 and 240,000 deaths from the pandemic.
US President Donald Trump lowered those estimates and was confident that the final figure would rather be between 50,000 and 60,000 deaths, although later he predicted up to 110,000 deaths, a number that has more than doubled.
