The USA is the country with the most deaths due to the new coronavirus and also with the most cases of infection.
The University of Washington’s Institute of Health Metrics and Assessments, on whose models the projection of the pandemic evolution the White House is often based on, predicted about 596,000 deaths by early July.
In the vaccination campaign, about 99.5 million people (30% of the population) have already received at least one dose of the vaccine, having completed inoculation 56.1 million (16.9% of the country’s total), according to the Centers Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The covid-19 pandemic caused at least 2,816,908 deaths worldwide, resulting from more than 128.8 million cases of infection, according to a report made by the French agency AFP.
The disease is transmitted by a new coronavirus detected in late 2019 in Wuhan, a city in central China.
