KUALA LUMPUR, May 28 — The United States has recorded over 100,000 deaths from Covid-19, the highest toll from the disease in the world.
The Guardian reported that the United Kingdom, the second-ranking country on coronavirus fatalities, has reported almost three times less than the US with more than 37,000 Covid-19 deaths.
Based on the Covid-19 Dashboard by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University, almost 5.7 million people have been affected by Covid-19 worldwide and a total of 355,629 deaths have occurred globally.
Two months ago, the White House predicted the death toll in the US will exceed 100,000. US president Donald Trump said the US’s death toll will reach less than the predicted number.
The US has recorded almost 1.7 million Covid-19 cases thus far and is listed as the top country with the highest number of cases in the world, followed by Brazil.
The US also imposed a travel ban for anyone who stayed in Brazil for the last 14 days in order to limit Covid-19 transmission.
