More Than 1,000 Died Today From Coronavirus In The US

The U.S. topped 1,000 coronavirus deaths in a single day for the first time Wednesday, according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The staggering death toll more than double that of two of America’s most deadly illnesses – lung cancer and the flu.

Death counts from the virus are difficult to keep up to date in the daily chaos from the virus, but the Johns Hopkins coronavirus database shows that the U.S. hit 1,040 cases Wednesday at 10:25 p.m. ET.

Since the virus’ first appearance in the U.S. in late January, more than 5,000 people have died and more than 215,000 have been infected.

The previous high mark for a single day in the U.S. was Tuesday, with 504 deaths.

As many as 240,000 Americans may die from the new coronavirus according to estimates released by the White House on Tuesday.

Health experts say the future of the coronavirus depends on such factors as whether humans develop increasing immunity to it and whether an effective vaccine is developed. If neither occurs, the virus will likely continue to circulate and establish itself as a common respiratory virus, killing thousands every year.
