According to the newest figures collated by Johns Hopkins University, the US overtook China (81,782 circumstances) and Italy (80,589).
The grim milestone got here as President Donald Trump predicted the nation would get again to work “pretty quickly”, after 3.Three million layoffs.
More than 1,100 individuals with Covid-19 have died within the US.
What did President Trump say?
At a White House briefing on Thursday afternoon, Mr Trump mentioned: “They have to go back to work, our country has to go back, our country is based on that and I think it’s going to happen pretty quickly.
“We might take sections of our nation, we might take massive sections of our nation that are not so significantly affected and we might do it that means.”
He added: “Lots of people misread after I say return, they will be practising as a lot as you’ll be able to social distancing, and washing your palms and never shaking palms and the entire issues we talked about.”
