US Covid-19 fatalities surge: Global death toll passes 125,000

By Paul Dennis

The US saw nearly three times as many deaths from Covid-19 as any other country yesterday.

There were a total of 2,303 deaths in the country in 24 hours – a record for one day, and a sharp rise from the 1,509 recorded on 13 April.

Italy saw 602 deaths and Spain just 300. The UK – with 782 new deaths reported yesterday – has now had the highest daily death total in Europe for four days in a row.
