the State of New York has more than a third of the total number of confirmed coronatilfælde throughout the UNITED states.
Over 40 percent of the deaths which are registered in the UNITED states, has been in New York.
the Sunday shows to a statement from the Johns Hopkins University, to 8503 people have died in the entire UNITED states. The inventory is not yet updated with numbers from other states.
But there is, with great probability, an unknown number of deaths, which is not counted in the statistics, experts say the Washington Post.
the Country’s health authorities count only the dead, who, through a laboratory test has been confirmed infected with the coronavirus.
“We know that it is an underestimation,” says Kristen Nordlund, spokeswoman for the u.s. centers for disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
A number of people who die at home or in the nursing home without being tested for the disease, does not count in the statistics.
Also people who have died of, among other lung diseases in the beginning of the coronaudbruddet, is not tested and counted in the statistics, say epidemiologists to the newspaper.
