The corona situation in the USA is getting worse. Just a few days before the US presidential election, the number of new infections rose to more than 90,000 within 24 hours, a record. The number of deaths is also terrifying.
The USA registered more new corona infections on Thursday than ever before. There were more than 91,000 cases. The previous daily record was reported on October 23 with 84,169 cases. Worldwide, India holds the highest number of registered new infections in a single day with 97,894 infections.
In addition to new infections, deaths and hospital stays are also increasing. For the third time in October, more than 1,000 people died from the virus within 24 hours. This brought the total death toll in the United States to 229,000.
The US states currently hardest hit include Ohio, Michigan, North Carolina, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, which were hotly contested in the presidential election campaign. The decision here could be whether Republican President Donald Trump receives a second term or whether Democratic challenger Joe Biden succeeds him. The election will take place on November 3rd.
