Staggering figures as corona virus hits 500,000 cases in the US, 2,000 patients die in one day

(By Sky News) - More than 2,000 people who tested positive for coronavirus died across the US on Friday - the highest number of fatalities seen so far.






According to Johns Hopkins University, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in the US has now exceeded 500,000.
However, there are signs that Americans are increasingly staying at home to help reduce the number of new coronavirus infections.
Top economic officials in the Trump administration have expressed hope that businesses could start to reopen in May, but America's top infectious diseases expert has warned against relaxing restrictions prematurely.
"Now is no time to back off," Dr Anthony Fauci said.
In total, more than 18,600 people in the US have died after testing positive for the coronavirus - narrowly behind Italy, which currently has the highest number of fatalities worldwide.
Officials have warned that fatalities will likely peak this week and then start to decline.
Evidence suggests that the number of new infections is flattening in New York state, the epicentre of the US outbreak.
New York Governor Andrew Cuomo confirmed there were 777 new deaths in the state on Friday, a slight reduction on the day before.
But in more encouraging news, the number of new hospitalisations increased by just 290 - considerably less than last week, when over 1,000 admissions were regularly being made on a daily basis.
The number of intensive care patients in New York has also decreased slightly for the first time since the middle of March.
