US records 960 coronavirus deaths in 24 hours: Johns Hopkins

WASHINGTON (HRNW) – The United States recorded 960 coronavirus deaths on Saturday, bringing its total to 103,758 since the global pandemic began, according to a tally kept by Johns Hopkins University.

The country has officially logged 1,769,776 cases of the virus, far more than any other nation, the tracker by the Baltimore-based university showed at 8:30 pm (0030 GMT Sunday).

The new numbers came as President Donald Trump faced a broad backlash over severing ties with the World Health Organization during the pandemic.

Trump initially suspended funding to the WHO last month, accusing it of not doing enough to curb the early spread of the virus and being too lenient with China, where COVID-19 emerged late last year.
