As the COVID-19 deaths in the US shatter leaders are calling for an increase in the wearing of masks
U.S. leaders urgently called on Americans to wear masks and threatened even more drastic stay-at-home orders after deaths from the coronavirus set a single-day record, with two people dying every minute.
More than 213,830 new cases and 2,861 deaths were reported on Thursday, according to a Reuters tally of official data. With COVID-19 entering hospitals in the United States also at record levels, many experts expect the death toll to exceed 3,000 per day soon.
