Coronavirus: How many Covid-19 patients in the US are in hospital?

The United States is now the country with the most coronavirus cases and deaths in the entire world and many states have prolonged the quarantine period in an attempt to prevent the virus from spreading further. As of the morning of Sunday 12 April the U.S. reports a total of 558,447 cases and 21,991 deaths.

United States president Donald Trump addressed the nation in a video message on Sunday morning and he urged everyone to remain at home and keep practicing social distancing.

On the other hand Dr. Anthony Fauci from the White House is very optimistic about getting the economy back up and running in the next few weeks because the daily number of people being admitted to hospital with Covid-19 infection appears to be decreasing.

“Even though the number of cases keep increasing the number of people hospitalised because of the virus is decreasing and this is a good sign for the country because we can tell people that it is safe to return to work,” Fauci said.
