The United States, which has the highest infection and death figures in the world, has suffered a strong resurgence of the epidemic in recent weeks. And health officials have warned of a risk of a rise in contamination after millions of Americans traveled last week to celebrate the big Thanksgiving holiday, despite their calls to avoid travel.
For two weeks, the daily number of deaths in the United States has steadily exceeded 2,000, as was the case in the spring, during the peak of the first wave of the pandemic. Since the start of the pandemic, the United States has recorded more than 14.3 million cases of contamination and 281,121 deaths linked to the virus.
