The United States reached the number of 7,974,502 cases confirmed coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and that of 217,745 deceased for COVID-19 disease, according to an independent tally from Johns Hopkins University.

The balance at 00.00 GMT this Friday was 70,334 infections more than on Wednesday and 1,148 new deaths. Those of this Thursday are the highest figures of infections and deaths since the peak of July.

Although New York is no longer the state with the highest number of infections, it does continue as the hardest hit in terms of deaths, with 33,337, a figure similar to Peru, Spain or France. In New York City alone, 23,915 people have died.

New York is followed in number of deaths Texas (17.272), California (16.828), New Jersey (16,197) and Florida (15,736). Other states with a large death toll are Massachusetts (9,672), Illinois (9,373), Pennsylvania (8,413), Georgia (7,492) or Michigan (7,302).

As to contagions, California adds 866,675, Texas follows with 837,081, Florida is third with 744,988 and New York is fourth with 479,400.

The provisional balance of deceased -217,745- far exceeds the lower bound of the initial estimates from 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 be between 50,000 and 60,000 deaths, although later he predicted up to 110,000 deaths, a number that it has also been overcome.

For its part, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluations (IHME) of the University of Washington, whose models for predicting the evolution of the pandemic are often set by the White House, calculates that for the presidential elections of November 3 The United States will reach 230,000 deaths and by December 31 at 320,000.
