California has overtaken New York as the worst-affected state in terms of total coronavirus infections.
With more than 10,000 people testing positive for the deadly virus Tuesday, the state’s total cases increased to 409,382, as per Johns Hopkins University’s latest data. 117 people died of COVID in the same period, taking the total number of casualties in California to 7890.
California is one of the first states to shut down and its Governor made it compulsory for the people to stick to the national guidelines. Things reportedly began to fall apart as restrictions were relaxed.
Currently, California has the third-highest average infection rate in the United States behind Florida and Texas. Incidentally these are the nation’s three most populated states.
New York, which has been the epicenter of the pandemic in the U.S. during the initial months, significantly improved its situation later.
Tuesday, 855 new cases and 14 additional deaths were reported in the state. This takes New York’s total COVID cases to 408,181 and total casualties to 32520.
Nationally, after a brief lull, daily coronavirus cases surged back to above 70000 level and new deaths crossed 1000.
With 71,209 additional infections reporting in the last 24 hours, the total number of cases in the United States reached 3902135 Tuesday.
Total deaths in the country reached 142068 as 1159 more people succumbed to the viral attack.
