image for US endures worst one-day death toll yet as states reopen

The U.S. saw its largest one-day death toll from the coronavirus pandemic to date on Thursday as several states began to reopen parts of their economies.

The grim news comes as Americans grow weary of the stay-at-home measures that have shuttered businesses and put millions of people out of work.

State leaders around the country continued to see protests from demonstrators who want to reopen the economy and return to their jobs.

Demonstrations took place in California, Colorado, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Tennessee and Washington on Friday.

However, some states, such as Texas, Georgia and South Carolina, have already opened up select businesses.

Other states have rolled out guidelines detailing how and when their economies can reopen.

The CDC has also noted it might not have a more accurate death toll until December 2021. »
