The United States may see the nationwide number of coronavirus deaths exceed 500,000 by February 20
More than 31,000 people in the United States have died due to the Chinese coronavirus during President Joe Biden’s first week in office.
Meanwhile, Dr. Anthony Fauci suggested that wearing two masks “just makes common sense.”
An estimated 31,180 people in the U.S. have died due to complications stemming from the coronavirus during Biden’s first week in the White House, according to statistics provided by Johns Hopkins University.
Last week, when President Biden was inaugurated, the United States had suffered a total of 397,611 deaths due to the Wuhan virus. One week later, the U.S. has topped 400,000 coronavirus-related deaths, putting the total at 428,791 lives lost across the nation.
On Wednesday, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said that the United States may see the nationwide number of coronavirus deaths exceed 500,000 by February 20.
