As of May 24, the US recorded 1,666.801 infections and 98,674 deaths from Covid-19, according to data from Worldometer.
Overall, new infections in the United States are showing signs of slowing, but this figure in 25 states is steadily increasing, according to The New York Times.
Meanwhile, six states, including North Carolina, Alabama, Arkansas, North Dakota, Maine and Wyoming, recorded more new infections after increasing Covid-19 testing.
New York State, the region most severely affected by the epidemic, allowed people to gather under 10 people. State Governor Andrew Cuomo is gradually easing blockade orders and restrictions on travel in the state.
The move comes as New York has recorded fewer than 100 deaths for the first time since March 24. Governor Cuomo said: “The data is decreasing and this is good news. This is also a sign that we are on the right track. “
Recently, a study showed that the death rate in the US focused on patients of color. This group of people has low income, has underlying disease and often lives in densely populated areas.
According to data from a large health system in the Northern California area, the number of black patients hospitalized for Covid-19 is three times that of white patients. Although many factors were considered, such as age, gender, income and background health, the researchers still noticed this significant difference.
The study suggests that poor living conditions, poor health and limited access to health services are the causes of the black community in the United States seriously affected by the pandemic.
