US: 4,500 deaths in 24 hours, toll touches 33k

Apr 17, 2020 09:34 IST

The confirmed coronavirus death toll in the United States reached close to 33,000 on Thursday, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University. The toll marked an increase of 4,491 deaths in the past 24 hours, by far the highest daily fatalities in the pandemic so far. But the figure likely includes "probable" deaths related to Covid-19, which were not previously included. The US has the highest death toll in the world, followed by Italy with 22,170 dead although its population is just a fifth of that of the US.
