The USA recorded its 500,000th COVID-19 death yesterday, that’s more than twice the COVID-19 fatalities registered in Brazil, which ranks second on the list.
 
President Joe Biden held a moment of silence and a candle-lighting ceremony at the White House and ordered American flags lowered at federal buildings for the next five days. He exhorted Americans to wear masks and take other steps to prevent the spread of the virus. He pointed out the death toll from the pandemic is higher than  the number of U.S. service members killed in battle during World War I, World War II and the Vietnam War combined.
 
The U.S., with about 4 per cent of the world's population, has recorded 25 per cent of the COVID-19 cases and 20 per cent of the fatalities. 

Meanwhile, the number of patients in California hospitals with COVID-19 has fallen below 7,000, a drop of more than thirty percent in two weeks, state health officials said. In Texas too similar situation prevailed as the state data on Sunday showed the lowest number of hospitalizations since mid-November.
