United States A record number of new coronavirus infections were seen for the second day in a row on Friday, with more than 944 cases a few days before voters decided whether Donald Trump should stay in the White House.
AFP reports that the epidemic has helped push about 9 million cases to the United States since the epidemic began, with Europe surpassing one million and France entering a new lockdown.
A growing recurrence of the epidemic is forcing other countries to consider the following cases – but Trump has promised that the United States will not be among them if he wins a second term on Tuesday.
A daily record for new infections was set on Friday, 24 days after the previous highest of 91,000, according to a study from Johns Hopkins University in the United States.
Hospitals across the country were annoyed by the increase in cases in almost every state and during the winter flu season.
But Trump, who says the virus will “disappear” during the campaign, has denied the allegations.
“We just want normal,” he told supporters – many of them unplanned – at an outdoor rally near Detroit when he called on states to relax public health restrictions and resume daily life.
He spoke in support of the US Alliance for Democracy, but said that maintaining some independence was important for the United States. “It simply came to our notice then.
Democratic candidate Joe Biden, who wanted to turn the November 3 election into a referendum on Trump’s pandemic, has accused his Republican rival of surrendering to the virus.
In a statement Friday, he said: “This is a serious allegation on the record of a president, as one might imagine, and it is declared absolutely incompetent.”
The fear of the virus has also taken a deadly shape on Wall Street, which has suffered its worst week since March and the month with more losing sessions for the election market for Friday.
