U.S. becomes the first country with more than 100,000 coronavirus deaths
May 28, 2020.
According to the John Hopkins University, the country surpassed the figure of 100,000 deaths on Wednesday during the gradual economic and social reopening accompanied by recommendations from doctors to curb contagion; however, in at least 15 states cases have increased.
The rise in deaths did not limit the millions of Americans who flocked to beaches over the long Memorial Day weekend, which marks an informal start of the summer season in the United States, a time characterized by family gatherings and outdoor activities.
The director of the U.S. National Institute of Infectious Diseases, Anthony Fauci, stressed the importance of using mouth coverings not only as a precautionary measure, but also as a symbol for everyone to know what needs to be done.
