The United States reached 196,661 coronavirus deaths and 6,626,242 confirmed cases of COVID-19 on Wednesday, according to Johns Hopkins University’s independent account.

This balance sheet represents 23,261 more contagions than on Tuesday and 968 new deaths.

Although New York is no longer the state with the highest number of contagions, it does remain the hardest hit in the United States with 33,042, more than in all of France or Spain; In New York City alone, 23,762 people have died from the disease, according to local authorities.

Many Coronavirus deaths in several Counties

New York is followed by deaths, according to the map of Johns Hopkins, neighboring New Jersey (16,054), Texas (14,715), California (14,656) and Florida (12,939).

Other states with a large death toll are Massachusetts (9,245), Illinois (8,599), Pennsylvania (7,882) and Michigan (6,943).

In terms of contagion, California leads the list with 770,035, followed by Texas with 695,988, Florida with 671,201, and New York with 446,366.

The interim death balance of 196,661 far exceeds the lowest level of initial White House estimates, which projected at best between 100,000 and 240,000 coronavirus deaths.

US President Donald Trump lowered those estimates and was confident that the final figure would be rather between 50,000 and 60,000 deaths, although he then rectified up to 110,000 dead, a number that has also been surpassed.

For its part, the Institute of Health Metrics and Assessments (IHME) at the University of Washington, in whose models of prediction of pandemic evolution is often set by the White House, estimates that by the presidential election of November 3, the United States will have exceeded 257,000 coronavirus deaths and by December 31, 412,000.
