A new NBC News tally has revealed a new grim statistic about coronavirus deaths that have happened in the past week in America.
The new statistic is a hard one to swallow, but according to NBC News, one person died every 80 seconds from the coronavirus in the past week. In July alone, 26,198 people died from coronavirus, which is one every 102 seconds, and as of Wednesday this week, the total number of coronavirus deaths in the United States has risen to 158,000.
Additionally, the death rate in the United States seems to be increasing, and along with the death rate, new cases also seem to be piling up. So far, the US has confirmed 4.8 million coronavirus cases, and around 1.8 million of those have been recorded since July 7th.
