The coronavirus death toll in the United States has surpassed Italy's on Saturday, with more than 20,087 Americans dying from the virus. 


Italy has recorded 18,849 deaths as of this afternoon. 


The US also yesterday recorded the deadliest day from the coronavirus pandemic any country has so far seen as it becomes the first to mark 2,000 deaths in 24 hours. 


In the country's epicenter, New York , Governor Andrew Cuomo confirmed 783 more people died from the virus yesterday, bringing the death toll in the state to 8,627.


Althought the number of deaths was 'stabilizing', it was 'stabilizing at an horrific rate', Cuomo said.  


According to the latest figures, 508,791 Americans have now tested positive for COVID-19.  


As of Saturday midday, there were more than 2,700 new cases compared to the day before. 



Italy has continued to show signs its coronavirus lockdown is working as the number of new deaths and infections both fell today.


The number of fatalities recorded on Friday was 570, down from 610 the previous day, while the number of new cases slowed to 3,951 from 4,204 the day before.


The latest tallies broadly confirm what experts describe as a plateau of new cases and deaths, which are no longer accelerating but are still not falling steeply.


The total death toll since the outbreak came to light on February 21 rose to 18,849, the Civil Protection Agency said, which before Saturday was the highest in the world.


The number of officially confirmed cases climbed to 147,577, the third highest global tally behind those of the United States and Spain. 



With the New York metropolitan swamped with cases, fear mounted over the spread of the virus into the nation's heartland. 


Twenty-four residents of an Indiana nursing home hit by COVID-19 have died.


Chicago's Cook County has set up a temporary morgue that can take more than 2,000 bodies. 


And Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has been going around telling groups of people to 'break it up.'
