The United States death toll from COVID-19 has continued to climb, surpassing 80,000 early Monday evening.
According to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University, 80,087 people have died from the virus in the U.S.
Last week, President Donald Trump again revised his estimate of how many Americans will die from the coronavirus, saying it could be as many as 100,000.

Six feet of distancing and masks will be required, the department said. Parking lots, bike paths, piers and boardwalks will stay closed.
Los Angeles County has reported more than 31,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and at least 1,530 deaths.
