U.S. coronavirus deaths top 47,000

U.S. coronavirus deaths topped 47,000 on Wednesday after increasing by a near-record single-day number the previous day, according to a Reuters tally.

A University of Washington model, often cited by the White House, projected a total of nearly 66,000 U.S. coronavirus deaths by Aug. 4, an upward revision from its most recent previous estimate of 60,000 deaths. At current rates, U.S. deaths could reach 50,000 later this week.

The first U.S. coronavirus death occurred weeks earlier than previously believed, according to California county health officials who saved tissue samples for weeks until they could be tested. The first U.S. death was on Feb. 6, instead of Feb. 29, they reported.
