The United States is the world’s worst-affected country with fatalities.

US coronavirus deaths crossed 30,000 on Thursday, according to Johns Hopkins tracker, as President Donald Trump prepares to announce guidelines for reopening the economy.

The United States is the world’s worst-affected country with fatalities doubling in just a week and setting a record single-day increase for two days in a row.

The governors of Connecticut, Maryland, New York and Pennsylvania began cautiously preparing Americans for a post-virus life where residents wear face masks as they emerge from isolation in the coming weeks.

The US shutdown has crushed the nation’s economy to levels not seen since the Great Depression nearly a century ago as more than 20 million Americans have sought unemployment benefits amid shuttered stores and restaurants.

US cases totaled over 635,000 on Wednesday, the biggest increase in five days, according to the Reuters tally.
