The number of coronavirus deaths in the United States hit 150,000 on Wednesday, by far the highest in the world, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
The bleak milestone comes amid signs that the nation’s focus is beginning to stabilize on its belts but is warming in the Midwest, driven mainly by young adults, who are once again hitting bars, restaurants and gyms.
This increase was accompanied by a growing incidence of disinformation and conspiracy theories about putative drugs and the effectiveness of masks.

Brazil was in second place with more than 88,000 deaths, followed by Britain with about 46,000 deaths.
Johns Hopkins reported confirmed infections in the country at nearly 4.4 million, also the highest in the world, although real numbers in the US and around the world are considered higher due to testing limitations and many mild cases that have not been detected or reported.
