The United States of America has registered a staggering number of 30,000 confirmed Coronavirus cases, with a shocking total of 1000 deaths per day.
The United States reported on Friday more than 30,000 confirmed Coronavirus cases in a day for the first time, bringing the American total to more than 273,000 and the death toll to over 7,000. More than 1 million confirmed cases have been reported around the world.
The tens of thousands of new American cases came as President Donald Trump announced that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has recommended that everyone wear a simple, cloth face covering while out in public. Trump said the recommendation was “voluntary” and that he is choosing not to do it, but that “it may be good.”

The president intends to nominate White House lawyer Brian D. Miller to serve as the inspector general overseeing the Treasury Department’s implementation of the newly enacted $2 trillion Coronavirus law, the White House said Friday night.
