Coronavirus has killed more than 45,000 Americans with over 2800 deaths recorded on Tuesday alone. At least 800,000 people have been infected nationwide.
According to the latest data collated by virus tracker statistics website worldometers, 45,356 Americans had died from the virus as at 10 a.m. on Wednesday April 22, 2020, while 819,321 people had been infected. At least 83,008 others had recovered.
The latest data shows that 2804 people died from the coronavirus in the United States on Tuesday alone while 25985 new cases were recorded.
The real numbers may be much higher because testing remains limited in the United States.
Data from Johns Hopkins University virus tracker show that a little over 4 million Americans have been tested for the coronavirus.
New York, the epicenter of the crisis in the United States, has tested more people than anywhere else in the country with over 640,000 tests, followed by California with more than 282,000 tests.
As President Trump and a handful of Republican governors plan to reopen the country to relaunch economic activity, health experts have warned that without a wide range testing system, there might likely be a more severe resurgence of the virus.
