COVID-19 deaths in America have topped 4,000 in a day for the third time this month, as the coronavirus pandemic continues to worsen.
A staggering 4,022 people across the country died from the virus in the 24 hours to Wednesday evening, according to data obtained by The COVID Tracking Project.
That number is just below the 4,197 fatalities recorded across the US on Tuesday – which was the deadliest day of the pandemic thus far.
The only other day COVID-19 deaths have topped 4,000 was on January 6, when 4,194 Americans succumbed to the disease.
However, it is possible the daily death toll could climb even higher in the weeks ahead as a disturbing new map shows fatalities are on the rise in 33 states.
The map, created by The COVID Tracking Project, shows that deaths are up by 10 per cent or more in 25 states across the past week.
