US becomes first country to mark 2,000 deaths in 24 hours as infections top HALF A MILLION
The US has recorded the deadliest day from the coronavirus pandemic any country has so far seen as it becomes the first to mark 2,000 deaths in 24 hours. Almost 19,000 Americans have now died from a deadly virus and total confirmed cases have now topped half a million. New York state, which remains the epicentre of the US outbreak, makes up almost half of the total death toll across the whole of the US with 7,844 dead. America's deadliest day was even worse than experts predicted after forecasters said 1,983 people would die Friday.

The US has become the first country in the world to record more than 2,000 deaths from the coronavirus in a single day, and the number of infections across America has now topped 500,000.

As the nation mourns its darkest day on record during the pandemic, the total number of Americans infected skyrocketed past half a million.
The death toll increased to 18,798 Friday and infections reached 505,478, as another 35,579 Americans tested positive. 
The US is on track to become the deadliest nation in the world amid the outbreak, as it rapidly edges closer to Italy's death toll of 18,849. 
In a matter of days, it has surpassed Spain's death toll (16,081) which was previously hardest-hit after Italy.
Worldwide, more than 100,000 people have now been killed in the pandemic. 
New York state, which remains the epicenter of the US outbreak, made up almost half of the total death toll across the US and accounted for about a third of all deaths on Friday. 
Deaths in New York increased by 777, bringing the total death toll to 7,844.  
The number of cases in the state also rose by a staggering 10,575 to 170,512.
