In 24 hours, the country has identified nearly 73,800 new cases of Covid-19 (76,500 the day before) and deplored more than 1,150 additional deaths (1,225 the day before), according to the university, which updates its figures continuously.
The total number of infections diagnosed on American soil since the start of the pandemic is 4.1 million (including 1.26 million people declared cured).
The curve goes up
The United States, which is by far the most affected country in the world in absolute terms, has a total of more than 145,000 deaths linked to Covid-19.
After an improvement at the end of spring, the epidemic has been experiencing a sharp upsurge since the end of June, especially in heavily populated states in the south and west of the country such as Texas, Florida and California.
For 11 days, the level of new infections detected every 24 hours has not fallen below the 60,000 mark.
And the death curve has also started to rise, with a delay of a few weeks. The scientific consensus is that the wave of deaths follows that of infections by three or four weeks.
After regularly falling below the 500 deaths around the end of June, the daily reports have exceeded 1,000 daily deaths over the past three days.
