U.S. ENTERS PEAK DEATH WEEK FOR CORONAVIRUS WITH OVER 10K ALREADY DEAD

The U.S. death toll, which topped 10,000 on Monday, has entered what an official called the “peak death week” of the coronavirus pandemic. 

The U.S. death toll is rapidly closing in on Italy and Spain, the countries with the most fatalities to date at nearly 16,000 and about 12,500 respectively, according to a Reuters tally of official data.

“It’s going to be the peak hospitalization, peak ICU week and unfortunately, peak death week,” Admiral Brett Giroir, a physician and member of the White House coronavirus task force, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Monday.

Separately, on NBC’s “Today” Giroir said: “Whether you live in small town America or you live in the ‘Big Apple,’ everyone is susceptible to this and everyone needs to follow the precautions we’ve laid out.” 

More than 90% of Americans are under stay-at-home orders issued by state governors while eight states still were holding out on imposing such restrictions.
