Italy, United Kingdom, Chile and Peru make up the highest rate per death with the U.S making up of 23% of the world number of deaths which currently stand at 660,997.
In a span of 11 days, the U.S has recorded over 100,000 deaths with the state of Florida recording a daily high of 217 deaths per day.
The number of daily positive cases have also been on the rise ever since the number of deaths hit the 100,000 mark.
The news come at a time when millions of Americans have been rendered jobless due the virus with business feeling the pain too.
Experts on the matter have suggested strict adherence of health guidelines such as social distance and wearing of masks if the virus is to be defeated.
Funny enough, President Donald Trump has played down some of the measures including wearing of mask until recently when he admitted the seriousness of the pandemic.
Even though he has admitted the seriousness of the pandemic, he has failed to order public wearing of masks as pointed out by his closest presidential challenger Joe Biden.
