A report says that the United States is seeing a record number of deaths in the country due to the coronavirus outbreak, the highest number of reported deaths since the pandemic began in March 2015.
In an analysis of data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Associated Press reports that the total number of cases of coronaviruses that were diagnosed in the United State was 1,547,056, a 38% increase from the 1,472,732 diagnoses in March.
That number was a record high, but it still comes in just above the 527,542 cases reported by the U.S. last year.
As of the end of March, there were nearly 11.4 million Americans with coronaviral disease, according to the latest data from CDC.
The AP also notes that the number of new cases has been steadily rising in the past month.
