US tops 4,000 coronavirus deaths in a single day for first time during Covid pandemic and breaks record set 1 day

CORONAVIRUS deaths in the US have topped 4,000 for the first time.

The harrowing toll continues to break records as the virus keeps a tight grip on the nation, with US Covid cases continuing to climb past 21.5million.

On Thursday alone, 4,085 Americans died from Covid-19, according to a tally from Johns Hopkins University.

The nation's death toll is now 365,448, according to the count.

The staggering single-day death count breaks a record from the day before.

Also on Thursday, the US recorded a new record number of new infections, with almost 275,000 positive tests.

As the virus continues to ravage the US, there's hope that vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna may bring some relief to the nation.

Doses must be rationed in early months, however, as states prioritize jabs going to healthcare and essential workers and those that are high-risk.
