A pandemic of the novel coronavirus has now killed at least 7,152 people in the United States.
With more than 277,000 diagnosed cases of COVID-19, the U.S. has by far the highest national tally in the world, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University.
More than 1.09 million people worldwide have been diagnosed with the disease. The actual number is believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some governments are hiding the scope of their nations’ outbreaks.
Over 58,900 have died across the globe and more than 226,000 people have recovered.
