The coronavirus death toll in America doubled in the span of just two days as new potential hotspots emerge in urban centers around the country.

The US currently leads the world in coronavirus infections with 123,778 reported as of Sunday morning. The death toll surpassed 2,100 on Saturday, doubling figures reported two days earlier.

New York City remains the epicenter of the nation’s outbreak, with 30,765 cases and 672 deaths.

But several other cities including Detroit, Chicago, Los Angeles, New Orleans and Boston are now being monitored as potential hotspots, threatening to push the overall case count in the US higher and higher.

‘Every metro area should assume that they will have an outbreak equivalent to New York,’ Dr Deborah Birx, the White House’s coronavirus response coordinator, told NBC’s Meet the Press on Sunday morning.

Brix’s warning came as Dr Anthony Fauci, the government’s foremost infection disease expert, said the US could experience more than 100,000 deaths and millions of infections from the pandemic.

‘I would say between 100,000 and 200,000 cases,’ he told CNN’s State of the Union, correcting himself to say he meant deaths. ‘We’re going to have millions of cases.’

But he added ‘I don’t want to be held to that’ because the pandemic is ‘such a moving target.’
