U.S. Tops 6 Million Confirmed Cases of Coronavirus

CDC updated data shows 94% of deaths had other conditions in addition to COVID-19.

The United States passed another milestone earlier this week as 6 million Americans have now tested positive for COVID-19. Cases are slowing down across the United States with notable exceptions in midwest states. Over the last fourteen days there has been 18% fewer new cases across the country. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recently updated the fatality data to reflect that only 6% of those who have died with the virus had no other health condition recorded. While over 183,000 people have died with the virus, 94% are now shown to have had co-morbidities. President Trump responded to this information by saying that the U.S. shut down “the entire economy based on 9,000 American deaths to the China coronavirus.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God to heal those infected by COVID-19 and comfort those who have lost loved ones.
  • For accurate and beneficial information to be released by the government about the disease.
  • For the White House Coronavirus Task Force as they work to end the pandemic.
