The US death toll is nearly 90,000, with nearly 1.5 million confirmed infections, making the US the worst-affected country in the world.
The United States accounts for about 4.25% of the world's population, but currently has about 29% of the confirmed deaths from Covid-19.
Models used by the White House suggest the coronavirus death toll could rise to around 147,000 by the month of August.
And although the overall number of new cases in the country is on the decline, in some states, the number of infections is actually on the rise.
“There are some states that are still having increasing daily number of cases; some states that are flat; some states that are going down,” Dr. Tom Inglesby, director of the Center for Health Security of the Johns Hopkins University, told NBC News.
Two top officials in President Donald Trump's administration are now blaming government scientists and pre-existing health conditions to explain the country's world-leading Covid-19 death toll.
