More than 250,000 casualties from Covid-19 has been recorded in the US.

This development is a sign that more cases are surging again across the country.

On casualties and cases, the country has now reported 250,029 deaths and nearly 11.5 million cases, Johns Hopkins University reports.

So far, it has more reported infections and a higher death toll than any other country worldwide.

On the daily rise of infections, last week, more cases started were discovered throughout the US.

Meanwhile, Dr Anthony Fauci while speaking to the BBC on Wednesday, said the country was “going in the wrong direction at a very precarious time”, with people more likely to gather inside as the weather gets colder.

Amid a spike in cases, New York City – the epicentre of the US outbreak in the spring – has ordered the closure of its schools from Thursday.

Officials have disclosed that the decision to close the US’s largest public school system came as positive test rates for the virus surpassed the 3% threshold.

Although, sources said it will affect some 300,000 children.
