Coronavirus deaths reach 150,000 in USThe United States has reached yet another grim milestone in the coronavirus pandemic. There are now over 150,000 deaths in the US attributable to COVID-19 (151,494 is the current count).

There are 23 states trending upward in new cases, and while states like California, Texas, Florida (which surpassed New York in confirmed cases), and Arizona have been getting hit exceedingly hard recently, but now Dr. Anthony Fauci is warning several states including Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky to get control over the recent rise of cases, saying the US cannot afford to handle the type of surges seen further south and west, as CNN reports.

The US states with the most confirmed cases are:

  • California: 466,825 confirmed cases; 8,549 deaths.
  • Florida: 441,977 confirmed cases; 6,119 deaths.
  • New York: 440,462 confirmed cases; 32,708 deaths.

  • New Jersey: 185,756 confirmed cases; 15,889 deaths.
