The United States records lowest Covid-19-related deaths in almost 3 weeks

The United States has registered over 50,000 coronavirus deaths and accounts for one fourth of the pandemic’s fatalities around the world. The U.S. is by far the hardest-hit country and some businesses had a green light to reopen on Friday in the state of Georgia following president Donald Trump’s initiative to reopen the economy.

According to the data, nearly 93 percent of all deaths from the pandemic in the US have occurred in the past three weeks, 44 percent of which have occurred over the last seven days. But after several sharp spikes last week, the number seems to be slowing, with the data reflecting an average of 600 less deaths than previous days.

The United States reported on Friday, April 24 a total of 1,258 coronavirus deaths, 2,500 less than Thursday's figures according to the data from John Hopkins University. The last time the country reported such a death toll was on 6 April with 1,150.
