In the US, Covid took as many lives in one day as the September 11 terrorist attack

The increase in deaths in the United States is observed simultaneously with the fact that some States have announced a partial restoration of business operations and “return to normal life”.

The US recorded the deadliest day in the entire period of the coronavirus outbreak. On Thursday, April 30, in just 24 hours, 2,909 people with Covid-19 died in the country. This is almost the same number of casualties as during the terrorist attacks in New York on September 11, 2001. Then, according to official data, 2973 people died or went missing, according to Voice of America.

The increase in deaths in the US is observed at a time when some states have announced a partial restoration of business operations and a “return to normal life”.

Health experts and epidemiologists warn that due to business openings and public impatience during quarantine, the Covid-19 virus can spread quickly.

Recently, a wave of protests against quarantine measures has swept the American States. The most high-profile protests were held in California, Colorado, Illinois, New Jersey, Tennessee, New York, and Florida.

Experts warn that the number of deaths due to coronavirus disease may be higher than official data because many patients die at home and they are not included in the statistics.

Recall that the Secretary of state of the United States of America Mike Pompeo said that there is a significant amount of evidence that the coronavirus began to spread from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
