The number of deaths from coronavirus in the United States exceeded 300 thousand

The death toll from COVID-19 in the United States has exceeded 300 thousand. It happened on Monday, the same day that the first American was vaccinated against the coronavirus that causes the disease.

The grim milestone was passed two weeks after millions of Americans disregarded warnings to avoid travel and gathered with their families on Thanksgiving.

According to the Johns Hopkins University Resource Center for Coronavirus, as of Monday, 300,267 Americans have died from COVID-19. The United States accounts for about a fifth of all COVID-19 deaths worldwide.

The death toll from coronavirus in the United States has reached 100 thousand four months after the start of the epidemic. At the same time, according to some health experts, this figure will increase by another 100 thousand by the end of January.
