Washington, United States:
The coronavirus pandemic has killed 749 people in the United States in the last 24 hours. This comes from figures released on Saturday by Johns Hopkins University.
The recent deaths bring the total to 109,791 in the United States, and there were more than 1.9 million cases. This is based on a real-time balance that was run by the Baltimore-based university at 8:30 p.m. (Sunday, 12:30 a.m. GMT).
Around 500,000 people have recovered from the disease.
The United States has by far the most deaths and infections with COVID-19.
However, on a per capita basis, several European countries – including France, Italy and Spain – have a higher mortality rate.
President Donald Trump said Friday that the United States had "largely survived" the pandemic, and again urged the governors to simplify the blocking measures in their states.
While the United States suffered around 3,000 deaths daily in mid-April, that number has now dropped to around 1,000 deaths and 20,000 new cases a day.
Healthcare professionals fear, however, that mass demonstrations against police brutality and racism in cities in the United States could lead to a renewed increase in infections in the coming weeks.
