New York, AFP. Corona virus is not taking the name of havoc in America. Despite all the efforts of the government, the death toll continues to grow. In New York, 799 people have died in the past 24 hours, although Governor Andrew Cuomo said the epidemic was stabilizing.
New York Governor Cuomo said 779 people have died here in the last 24 hours. After this, the death toll from Kovid-19 in New York State has increased to 6,268. While on Monday, 731 people died due to corona virus.
At the same time, for the second consecutive day in the US, the death toll of the corona virus has remained beyond 2000, while more than 14000 people have died so far. The number of virus-infected people has exceeded four lakhs.
The governor said that New York is suffering the worst of the deadly corona virus epidemic of America. New York accounts for half of the Corona virus deaths nationwide. Despite the increase in cases, the rate of people coming to the hospital due to social distancing continues to decrease.
He said that if the hospital system remains stable for the next two weeks, the need for temporary hospitals will be minimized. A convention center and a hospital on board a US Navy ship have been built in the field in Central Park to treat the patients.
On Monday, the governor extended statewide lockdown and non-urgent occupations and schools until April 29. He has once again appealed to people to stay in their homes and not to move out unless absolutely necessary.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said the death toll in New York could be higher because many deaths at home are not being counted. Meanwhile, preliminary data released on Wednesday showed that people in New York’s Latino and African-American communities are dying at a higher rate of Kovid-19 than others.
According to Johns Hopkins University, the number of corona virus-infected patients has crossed 1.5 million globally, while a total of more than 88,000 people have died so far. In addition, three million people infected with the virus have been cured worldwide.
