29% of these patients are children between 5 and 9 years of age.
Mortality from coronavirus in the American state of New York has increased over the past 24 hours.
This was stated by New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo.
вЂњ195 people have died in the past 24 hours, while 161 died the day before,вЂќ he said. вЂ” Although the number of fatalities has increased, the number of new patients admitted to hospitals with suspected coronavirus is not increasing.
The State Department of Health is scrutinizing information on about 100 cases of illness in children, possibly related to infection with coronavirus. He said 29 percent of these patients are children between the ages of 5 and 9, and 28 percent of cases are between the ages of 10 and 14. вЂњThis situation is alarming for us,вЂќ he said.
Highlighting plans to gradually lift sanitary restrictions in three state districts, the governor noted that local authorities should вЂњcommensurate the relaxation of control with the real situation. If decisions to resume economic activity are taken ill-considered, the virus will once again manifest its disgusting nature. Everything will depend on how consistently citizens comply with sanitary measures,вЂќ he said.
According to Johns Hopkins University, which carries out calculations based on information from federal and local authorities, the U.S. recorded more than 1.3 million cases of infection with coronavirus, more than 81 thousand people died, including more than 27 thousand in New York State.
Recall that the United States is developing eight versions of vaccines against coronavirus.
