The number of people infected with the coronavirus among US police officers reached 690, causing increased concern that the circle of people living with the virus in this sector is expanding.
This came according to an opinion poll conducted by the American “Associated Press” agency, which included the police in the major cities of the United States.
The poll results showed that 512 of the total policemen are in New York State alone, which has recently become a hotbed of the virus in the United States.
In this context, US provincial officials have sent a letter to the President of the country, Donald Trump, asking him to reinforce logistical support for police personnel, such as providing them with more quantities of masks, sterilizers, gloves and cleaning supplies.
Although many measures have been taken by the American police, the injuries of those charged with protecting shops and hospitals are increasing.
During the last 24 hours, the United States recorded 19,826 new infections in coronavirus, bringing the total number of cases to 124,686, and deaths to two thousand and 191.
The United States leads the world in the total number of injuries.
In all, the virus has infected more than 710,000 people in 199 countries and territories, more than 33,000 have died, while more than 150,000 have recovered.
