According to Johns Hopkins University, more than 30 million cases have been reported in the US.., with more than 545,200 deaths reported the virus.

Around the world, more than 124.9 million people have been confirmed infected and more than 2.7 million have died. More than 70 million have recovered, according to Johns Hopkins University. The actual figures are certainly much higher, due to limited evidence, the different ways nations count the dead, and the deliberate undervaluation of some governments.
