uscoronavirus aug03 lt

The United States reported a drastic fall in the number of new coronavirus cases and deaths Sunday.

After recording more than 60,000 infections daily for the fifth consecutive day, new cases sharply fell to 47,508 on Sunday, taking the country's total to 4668336.

This is the lowest daily case in nearly a month.

Likewise, for the last one week, more than 1000 people were dying from the viral disease in the U.S. On Sunday, the casualty rate came down to 541. The total death toll increased to 154860.

With 241 additional deaths in a single day, Florida set a new state record on Sunday, takng the Sunshine state's total deaths to 7084.

Meanwhile, White House coronavirus advisor Deborah Birx warned that the United States has entered a "new phase" of the pandemic, with rural areas just as threatened as city regions.

"What we are seeing today is different from March and April. It is extraordinarily widespread. It's into the rural as equal urban areas," she said in CNN's "State of the Union" program.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi declared Sunday that she has "no confidence" in Deborah Birx, who heads the White House coronavirus task force.

"I think the president is spreading disinformation about the virus and she is his appointee. So, I don't have confidence there, no," Pelosi told ABC News.
