The United States reached a grim, new milestone on Wednesday: surpassing 150,000 coronavirus deaths - the most of any country on earth... nearly a quarter of the world's death toll.

More than 10 thousand Americans have died in the last 11 days.

This is the fastest increase in deaths since in early June, according to a Reuters tally.

To slow the spread of new cases - many states have reversed course on reopening efforts… But there is still debate on whether it’s safe to reopen schools in the fall.

President Donald Trump has accused Democratic lawmakers of wanting to keep schools shut for political reasons.

On Wednesday - top administration officials and Democratic congressional leaders will try again to narrow their stark differences over a coronavirus aid bill to help the economy and unemployed Americans... as some jobless benefits expire at the end of the week.
